Cruise line unveils a new Champagne experience

Oceania Cruises has unveiled an exclusive Dom Perignon Experience in La Reserve, its floating high-end restaurants on board the Marina and Riveira.

This unique dining experience afloat pairs six courses of fine food with four different expressions and vintages of Dom Perignon Champagne.

“This is a totally new concept that is exclusive to Oceania Cruises," said Bob Binder, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises.

"We worked with the team at Dom Perignon to pair the perfect champagnes with the perfect flavors and the outcome is spectacular. Marina and Riviera restaurants will be the only places in the world for travelers to enjoy this exclusive Dom Perignon experience."

Created by the culinary team at La Maison Dom Perignon in conjunction with Oceania Cruises’ culinary team, the dinner is offered to a maximum of 24 guests a night.

“We created this dinner to be sophisticated, memorable, a little bit decadent, but also a lot of fun. After all, champagne is all about celebration,” said Binder.

The menu features Scallops “Rossini”, mole negro and roasted pineapple with Dom Perignon 2009; Brittany blue lobster in yellow curry broth and coco foam, and black truffle risotto with aged parmesan with Dom Perignon 2006; seared Wagyu beef sashimi-style, sautéed arugula, blood orange-soya jus and caviar perlita and a French AOC cheese plate, blackcurrant pepper paste and thyme flower with Dom Perignon Rosé 2004 and Sakura tea “Geisha flower” ice cream and lemon caviar paired with Dom Perignon 2009.

“We’ve gone exceptional lengths to pair the flavors of the dishes and the accompanying vintages to bring out the best in each other, and even surprise the palates of our dinner guests, said Bernhard Klotz, vice-president of culinary operations for Oceania Cruises.

The Dom Perignon Experience is currently available for all Riviera voyages and will be introduced aboard Marina from January 31. Reservations are required, and the cost is $US295 per guest not including gratuities (why not, for heaven's sake?)

Reservations may be made via travel agents, directly with Oceania Cruises, or on board at the Specialty Dining Desk located on Deck Five of both ships.
