Oceania Cruises said it is adding two features to its food-and-beverage offerings, and announced some of the guest chefs that will be aboard its upcoming world cruise.
The upper-premium line said it has created a wine-by-the-bottle package that includes some wines not on the regular wine list. It is priced at $42.50 per bottle (gratuities included) with a seven-bottle minimum. The package will vary by ship and itinerary.
Oceania is also introducing a pairings menu in its La Reserve by Wine Spectator tasting room on two ships, Riviera and Marina. A sample pairing would be portobello mushroom risotto with smoked ricotta and black truffle with the Tenuta Guado Al Tasso Il Bruciato from Bolgheri, Italy.
On its 180-day world cruise leaving in January, Oceania said guest chefs will include Olivier Desaintmartin of Philadelphia’s French bistro Caribou Café and Jean-Louis Dumonet, executive chef of the Union Club in New York City and president of the Maîtres Cuisiniers de France.
