How Oceania Cruises is Raising the Bar at Bartending

The reasons to love cruising are nearly endless. The sights! The adventure! The drinks! Well, that last one is true primarily for those lucky enough to be sailing with Oceania Cruises. As the world’s leading culinary- and destination-focused cruise line, Oceania Cruises is pleased to announce its latest foray into the cutting edge of gastronomy: the 1,200-guest Vista. The star of the show? The elevated, innovative bar program — the best in class when it comes to having a drink. Read on to see how Vista. is raising the bar when it comes to bartending.
New Concepts

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.

No matter what you order, you're sure to discover why they call it the Finest Cuisine at Sea®

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.
