Expanded Oceania Cruises Bistro menu includes Jacques Pépin specialities.
Oceania Cruises popular lunch option, The Bistro, will soon offer its expanded lunch menu fleet-wide. The cruise line introduced an entirely new menu with more than 600 new dishes, most with an international flair.
Afternoons with a French twist
The Bistro debuted aboard the 684-passenger Sirena in 2016. Now The Bistro is available aboard the line’s other five ships – Regatta, Insignia, Nautica, Marina, and Riviera.
Oceania Cruises Bistro Lunch is offered every day at The Grand Dining Room. Familiar favorites are still in the “always available” menu section along with daily-changing regional specialties.
A sampling of some of Jacques Pépin’s favorite bistro-style dishes like the crisp Salade Niçoise and a warm Croque-Monsieur accompanied by the perfect glass of wine such as a refreshing Coteaux du Languedoc rosé offer the perfect way to be French for the afternoon, anywhere in the world over.
The new menus are astounding in their diversity and flexibility affording guests the opportunity to return to experience something new and different, or time-honored classics. Every day, The Bistro offers five appetizers, fours soups & salads, and eleven entrée selections. To cap off each meal, guests will find a daily-changing selection of four different desserts and six ice cream flavors.
