MIAMI, FL – January 15, 2011 – Apollo affiliate International Cruise Services Inc. has been retained to provide food, beverage, and hotel services onboard the latest additions to the Oceania Cruises fleet, the brand new Marina, and her sister ship, the Riviera, two of the most beautiful, elegant and sophisticated ships to debut in the past 50 years. Designer touches are everywhere, from the magnificent Lalique Grand Staircase to the stunning Owner's Suites furnished by Ralph Lauren Home.

Comfortably mid-size, Marina and Riviera retain the same warmth and charm of their acclaimed fleet sisters Regatta, Insignia and Nautica.

Dining venues include the Grand Dining Room, where waiters attends to each customers wish as they graciously serve course after course of European-inspired Continental cuisine or the healthy and savory fare of the world-renowned Canyon Ranch®. At Jacques, the first restaurant to bear the name of the eminent Chef Jacques Pépin, simple classic French cuisine is, of course, absolutely magnifique. To complement the stunning interior of Red Ginger, the chefs have created a striking menu, noted for its contemporary interpretations of Asian classics.

La Reserve, created by Wine Spectator, offers an education in wine and food pairings. . The new Bon Appétit Culinary Center is the only hands-on cooking school at sea. For specialty coffees and snacks, there is Baristas Coffee Bar. Other dining choices include the Polo Grill, Toscana (Tuscan cuisine), and the Terrace Café.

As with the other ships in the Oceania fleet, International Cruise Services more than 40 years of culinary experience will be utilized to the full to ensure a unique and memorable experience for each guest who steps aboard Marina and Riviera.
