Celebrated for its culinary excellence, the world’s leading upper-premium cruise line, Oceania Cruises offers the finest cuisine at sea™, corroborated by its recent #1 ranking for its ship ‘Marina’ in leading global cruise review site and online community ­­– Cruise Critic 2016 Cruisers’ Choice Awards in the Best for Dining (Mid-Size) category. 

The ranking was based on cruiser reviews and ratings for cruises in 2015.

Exemplifying the Oceania experience, Marina features intimate warmth and charm with some of the best epicurean experiences designed exclusively for cruise guests. Offering up a myriad of enticing dining venues and enthralling culinary experiences, the ship proudly lives up to the brand’s reputation of providing the finest cuisine at sea.

“We are ecstatic to witness this level of recognition by Cruise Critic, a publishing leader in the cruising industry. The fact that we were ranked #1 by cruise travelers is testament to the commitment our staff puts into producing world-class culinary offerings, designed to inspire the taste buds of all our guests,” said Senior Vice President and Managing Director for Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Asia Pacific, Mr Steve Odell.

“The six mid-sized ships in our fleet offer some of the most eclectic restaurants, featuring fine dining from all around the world. We are thrilled with the vision of legendary Master Chef Jacques Pépin, our Executive Culinary Director. Through his ingenuity and culinary mysticism, we are now in a position to provide the finest cuisine at sea. The upcoming year will be particularly massive for Oceania Cruises in Australia, as our newest edition Oceania Sirena is set to embark on Australian shores for the very first time in March 2017, alongside Insignia, which is making its way back as part of its world cruise – Around the World in 180days. ”

“Being ranked at the top for best cruises in dining (mid-size) emphasises our position as the global cruise leader in culinary masterpieces, where our guests have the opportunity to indulge in some of the finest cuisines on the high seas. We will continue to find ways to delight our guests by surpassing their culinary expectations,” added Mr Odell.

Exceptional cuisine has been a hallmark of Oceania Cruises since the first cruise set sail in 2003, earning the reputation as the cruise line of choice for foodies. The Culinary Discovery Tours and Culinary Centre aboard Marina and Riviera ships offer a unique opportunity for culinary lovers to appreciate the epicurean cultures of local ports.
