Gourmet cuisine curated by world-renowned Master Chef Jacques Pépin
As Oceania Cruises’ Executive Culinary Director since 2003, Master Chef Jacques Pépin has long inspired our award-winning culinary program, which is renowned for The Finest Cuisine at Sea™.
Master Chef Pépin is an internationally renowned chef, author of 30 cookbooks, and host of 13 PBS television series. He has served as personal chef to three French heads of state, including Charles de Gaulle, and is also the recipient of countless awards, including the American Public Television’s Lifetime Achievement Award and La Légion d’Honneur, France’s highest civilian honour.
In 2016, Master Chef Pépin and his closest family founded the Jacques Pépin Foundation to share Jacques’ passion for cooking and mastery of technique with economically disadvantaged individuals in order to encourage them to seek pathways of success through culinary professionalism.
An American Masters film chronicling his life, Jacques Pépin: The Art of Craft, debuted on PBS in May of 2017 and his most recent book, A Grandfather’s Lessons: In the Kitchen with Shorey, features him cooking with his granddaughter and was published in 2017.

Intimate, luxurious ships
Once you sail on one of our luxurious ships, you will never settle for anything less, nor will you ever again be satisfied with anything more regarding size. Larger ships simply cannot provide the pronounced intimacy, and personalized vacation experience for which Oceania Cruises has become renowned. Our ships cater to just 684 pampered guests on Regatta, Insignia, Nautica and Sirena and 1,250 privileged guests on Marina and Riviera. Warmth and conviviality come naturally. Elegance and grace are givens. The ambiance is exceptionally relaxed and personal as we singularly focus on your individual desires. Consequently, service standards soar, guests easily develop a rapport with staff and fellow guests, and the friendships only deepen as the days pass effortlessly.
ALL THE ELEMENTS FOR BLISS
Ideally proportioned, our ships can slip into boutique ports off-limits to larger vessels. Of course, the intimate size of our ships also positively influences every aspect of the onboard experience. With no need to rush, stand in endless lines or worry about crowds, you can savour the defining elements that make our ships so special. Our cuisine, renowned as the finest at sea, is carefully prepared à la minute. Appointments for spa services are readily available in the relaxing Canyon Ranch® Spa. A comfortable chaise always awaits should you decide to lounge by the pool. Going ashore and returning on board takes minutes rather than hours. Life just seems to proceed at a more courteous pace. The differences are sizeable, noticeable and so refreshing.
Exceptional personalized service
Our ships boast an impressive staff-to-guest ratio, but it’s more than sheer numbers that elevates our personalized service into the sublime. Our staff genuinely cares about making you happy. Being of service comes naturally, a trait as innate as their unbridled enthusiasm. You can see it in their warm smiles and hear it in the sincere tone of their voices, as they zealously devote their full attention to fulfilling your wishes. Their commitment runs deep and never diminishes, no matter what the task.
ONLY THE BEST OF THE BEST
Not everyone holds the impeccable credentials to join our award-winning staff. Only those who have distinguished themselves in the world’s finest hotels and most renowned restaurants will do. They are true professionals with the rare ability to fastidiously attend to every detail and magically anticipate your wishes. The ease with which they remember your name, preferences and wants borders on miraculous. Nowhere is this talent more evident than among the English-trained Butlers who meticulously care for guests in all our suites.
Country club casual ambiance
FEEL AT HOME AWAY FROM HOME
Isn’t it wonderful to feel welcome and comfortable when traveling? It makes the experience so much more enjoyable and encourages you to mingle with shipmates and to fully explore your ship and the exciting destinations visited. We have carefully selected the rich colour and texture of every fabric, the vibrant glow of every sconce and the plush cushion of each settee, designing each detail so that our ships naturally exude a warm, inviting ambiance imbuing everyone on board with a sense of elegance and comfort. You are instantly put at ease, and it’s so refreshingly casual and friendly that it’s like being in your own private country club where everyone knows your name.
COME AND GO AS YOU PLEASE
This is elegance without pretence nor the need for tuxedos and evening gowns. This is a world where you can be yourself. The overwhelming sense of comfort and belonging seems to kindle geniality. Striking up conversations and making new friends becomes effortless. Meet over cocktails in Martinis and recount adventures ashore. Ask another couple to join you for a friendly game of cards. You will find it exceedingly easy to be sociable. Sometimes you may want nothing more than to relax by yourself. Take comfort in knowing that there are plenty of private retreats reserved just for you.
