Oceania's midsize ships feature dishes created by the legendary chef Jacques Pépin, like steak frites with garlic butter and poached salmon in sauce Choron (a béarnaise variation that incorporates tomato). Pépin has also launched a bistro, Jacques, onboard the ship Marina, which debuted last year. Oceania recently introduced longer voyages that can last up to 64 days, traveling between far-flung locations like Cape Town and Beijing. oceaniacruises.com
