OCEANIA CRUISES UNVEILS INNOVATIVE MIXOLOGY PROGRAMME, NEW MOËT & CHANDON CHAMPAGNE EXPERIENCE AND MORE ABOARD VISTA, DEBUTING MAY 2023
Oceania Cruises, the world’s leading culinary- and destination-focused cruise line with The Finest Cuisine at Sea is reaching new pinnacles of creativity and diversity with the introduction of an elevated, innovative bar programme aboard the 1,200-guest Vista.
Vista, the first of the brand’s all new Allura Class ships, will feature the latest cocktail-crafting trends and techniques such as flavoured smoke bubbles, an extensive selection of low- and no- sugar wines and zero-proof cocktails, plus Negronis aged in wooden barrels and speciality beverage carts like the Bubbly Bar and Ultimate Bloody Mary Bar.
New Concepts Including Immersive Mixology Experiences
A cornerstone of Vista’s bar programme will be immersive, experiential beverage offerings including speciality beverage carts like The Bubbly Bar, which will serve exclusive Champagne cocktails, and The Ultimate Bloody Mary Bar, where guests can DIY their perfect brunch accompaniment. In addition, guests will savour:
The Casino Mixology Bar is a brand new concept on Vista, focused entirely on the art of the cocktail. Boasting a unique selection of bourbons and ryes in addition to tableside preparation of cocktails and spirits, the bar will likely become an Instagram favourite for serving readymade Negronis straight from the barrel and awesome “Flavour Blaster Gun” cocktails that are topped off with vapour filled bubbles with aromatic flavours.
Martinis, Oceania Cruises’ signature bar onboard, is refreshing its namesake cocktail with a new spirits selection of Mermaid Gin and Vodka, handcrafted from ethically sourced botanicals on the Isle of Wight. Either shaken or stirred, the new martini menu features a collection that gives tribute to some of the greatest names in Hollywood such as: Lady Hepburn, Bogard’s Casablanca, Blue Eyes Sinatra and Notorious Bond.
Baristas, a favourite spot onboard for a delicious coffee, will introduce a new drink menu featuring innovative cocktails that incorporate Amari, an Italian herbal liqueur, in addition to ready-to-drink Italian selections like Crodino, San Pellegrino cocktails and Campari sodas.
