Oceania Cruises’ mid-sized ships carry either 684 or 1,250 guests, creating a feeling of warmth and connection in a country club-casual environment. With Master Chef Jacques Pépin as Executive Culinary Director, it’s no stretch to call their dining the finest on the sea. The open dining format makes it possible for guests to enjoy any of the onboard fine dining restaurants when and with whom they please. Oceania provides later departures and overnight stays allowing passengers more time to delve in to the heart of each stop. Each stateroom features 1,000-threadcount linens and Bulgari bath products.
