It’s not enough to just have a well-stocked bar — mixology demands forging ahead, breaking ground on fresh ideas while still paying homage to the tried-and-true staples. Experiential offerings cover both the former and the latter: It’s not every day that you can construct your own perfect brunch accompaniment at the Ultimate Bloody Mary Bar. Or savor a cocktail topped with a vapor-filled bubble at the Casino Mixology Bar. Or sample signature martinis comprised of a what’s-what of top-shelf spirits and named after a who’s-who of cool Hollywood icons. No matter what you choose to sip (or where), the result is the same: It’s one of the best drinks of your lifetime.
Fine Dining to Match
As anyone who’s savored libations could tell you: It’s a good idea to not drink on an empty stomach. The next (lesser-known) nugget of wisdom is: The quality of food and drink should match. The Vista’s offerings do not disappoint, as after all, this is the Finest Cuisine at Sea®. Maybe you’re hoping to start your day with a mocktail and avocado toast seated in the Aquamar Kitchen. Or maybe you’d like to sip fine rye or bourbon with braised short ribs in the ever-fashionable Ember. No matter what your palate is craving, Vista has a venue to deliver your dream meal, as well as the drink to match.
Elevating the Art of Pairing
Sure, pairing food and drink is an art, but pairing food and wine is more akin to religion. For disciples of the grape, rest assured that Oceania Cruises has made certain your needs are met, thanks to a variety of offerings. The Moët & Chandon Champagne Experience makes its debut aboardVista, providing a delectable three-course pairing extravaganza starring rare vintages. However, the crown jewel of onboard pairings is undoubtably the Dom Pérignon Experience — a signature Oceania Cruises experience since 2019. Located within the intimate dining venue Privée, guests will embark on a gastronomic odyssey as the six-course tasting menu is expertly curated to elevate the subtleties of Champagne. This taste-bud pampering is a must-have meal for every connoisseur of Champagnes, as well as all true gourmands.
