Best Large-Ship Cruise Lines
No. 3 Oceania Cruises
Oceania’s food and restaurant programs get top billing by T+L readers. On some sailings, travelers head out on guided market and wine tours in Barcelona and Athens, then return to the ship for cooking classes with guest chefs and dinner at the traditional Italian restaurant Toscana (there’s an outpost on all four ships), where travelers choose from a menu of artisanal olive oils—served in Versace china—for dipping fresh-baked bread.
What’s New: Oceania’s new all-inclusive beverage package makes cruising with the luxury liner an even greater value.
Number of Ships: 4.
Destinations: Oceania has a robust roster of European itineraries (72 sailings aboard four ships—including a new Greenland route and 12 maiden calls). The line also travels to Canada and New England, China and Southeast Asia, India and Africa, Australia and New Zealand, the Caribbean, South and Central America, and through the Panama Canal.
