Not even one year old, the elegant new Riviera is the first in the four-ship fleet to introduce Oceania Cruises‘ new culinary creations for the main dining room. By this summer, the remaining ships will have these 85 new dishes added to their menus.

Oceania Cruises has already established itself as a leader in onboard cuisine and culinary innovation, including the first ever hands-on culinary center where guests are given instruction by master chefs. To oversee the fleet’s culinary program is legendary master chef, Jacques Pépin, accompanied by a team of chefs to maintain Oceania Cruise’s high standard of cuisine.

Fleet Corporate Chef Franck Garanger, who travels the world sampling international cuisines to inspire his creation of dishes, led the team in conceiving the new menus. The Oceania Cruises culinary team has spent the past eight months designing and rigorously testing the new menu items. As the menus in the Grand Dining Room change daily, the rollout features a total of 85 new dishes, including three new lobster dishes and 10 new pastas and risottos.

They reflect our ongoing commitment to provide an exceptional dining experience that starts with a thoughtful and meticulously researched menu concept, the highest-quality ingredients and the perfect execution of traditional culinary techniques.”
