With myriad fine-dining restaurants and options (even the poolside grill boasts at least 6 hamburger variations), plus an onboard culinary school, Oceania Cruises’ Marina is a veritable foodie paradise. For those trying to keep from over-indulging, Canyon Ranch SpaClub, state-of-the-art fitness centers, art workshops and live entertainment do plenty to keep passengers satisfied and stimulated. Cruise on Marina to relax, enjoy fine dining and treat yourself to an all-round upper-premium cruise experience.


Oceania Cruises’ first new build, Marina, seems to have been designed for foodies. With the first hands-on purpose-built cooking-class facility at sea, which accommodates up to 24 guests at 12 stations, an array of dining options and an excellent wine list, Marina has something to please guests from aspiring Bobby Flay-types to vacationing gourmands.

Considered an upper-premium cruise ship, Marina has lots of luxurious touches like super-soft Ralph Lauren Home Collection bedding, butler service in the top stateroom categories and Bulgari toiletries.

Despite the upscale ambience, the ship has a laid-back atmosphere — reinvigorate in a whirlpool, repose at Canyon Ranch SpaClub or relax in the 2,000-book library. Oceania cruises prefer to sail without the traditional pomp and circumstance of formal nights, so you can leave your ball gowns and tuxedoes at home.
