This Cruise Line Is Pairing Dom Perignon with Decadent Seafood for a Once-in-a-lifetime Dining Experience
People travel far and wide to sample the world’s best food — but guests on Oceania Cruises don’t even have to get off the ship for a bite.
Oceania Cruises has paired with Dom Perignon to offer travelers a six-course meal paired with champagne on cruises around the world.
The exclusive concept will only be served to 24 guests at a time. Each of the courses will be paired with a bottle of Dom Perignon dating as far back as 2004.
“We worked with the team at Dom Perignon to pair the perfect champagnes with the perfect flavors and the outcome is spectacular,” Bob Binder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Oceania Cruises, said in a statement. “Marina and Riviera will be the only places in the world for travelers to enjoy this exclusive Dom Perignon experience.”
The menu is heavy on seafood—the kitchen is floating, after all. Courses include scallops “rossini” in mole negro, Brittany blue lobster and seared Wagyu beef sashimi style. The tasting menu ends in “geisha flower” tea with lemon caviar.
According to the cruise line, chefs and sommeliers have gone to “exceptional lengths” to perfectly pair each course with a bottle of Dom Perignon.
The tasting experience is currently available on all cruises aboard the Riviera ship and will be extended to the Marina when it sets sail on Jan. 31. The meal costs $295 per person, in addition to gratuities. Reservations are highly suggested.
“We created this dinner to be sophisticated, memorable, a little bit decadent, but also a lot of fun,” Binder said. “After all, champagne is all about celebration.”
