WHAT’S NEW IN THE WORLD

OF FOOD, DRINK & TRAVEL?

800 DISHES NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD

New dinner menus were unveiled by Oceania

Cruises earlier this year, featuring a

spectrum of international flavours as well

as an all-new Executive Chef’s Food &

Wine Pairing, available every evening and

featuring the chef’s selection of exquisite

dishes specifically curated for their

complementary and contrasting flavours.

Each evening in the Grand Dining Room,

guests will be treated to more than two dozen

dishes to choose from – six appetizers, three soups, four

salads, nine main courses and nine side dishes. Every

menu incorporates vegetarian dishes along with a Canyon

Ranch Balanced Selections (following their mantra for

indulgent, yet healthy living). All in all, the menus comprise

more than 800 dishes. Three new tasting menus have

also been introduced: Global Cuisine, Balanced Selection

and Food & Wine Pairing. Ready to indulge?

guests take hands-on cooking classes with top chefs,

go on culinary walking tours, visit wineries, sample

authentic street food, explore local hideaways and

more. Among the newest options, travellers have the

opportunity to visit numerous markets in Asia,

wineries in New Zealand and Tasmania, and “tough-

to-get-a-table” restaurants in Australia. Prefer to stick
