P&O Cruises Introduces Tasting Menus
P&O Cruises, a line already well known for its cuisine, has introduced new tasting menus onboard Aurora and Oceana.

The new gourmet dining experience for passengers will feature three tasting menus to choose from, each offering seven courses of small or "taster" dishes. The dishes are prepared by chefs that are members of the internationally recognized Chaine de Rotisseurs society.

Dishes include smoked salmon tartlet with warm scrambled eggs and caviar, pan fried fillet of beef in a rich red wine sauce, slow cooked Gloucester Old Spot pork belly, and French apple tart served with clotted cream ice cream.

The menus are available in Oceana's Plaza Bistro and in Aurora's Cafe Bordeaux (both are specialty restaurants). There is a cover charge of 9.50 GBP per person for the tasting menus.

Though tasting menus are usually the province of luxury lines like Seabourn and Regent Seven Seas Cruises, more mainstream lines -- such as Carnival and Norwegian Cruise Line -- have introduced their own multi-course degustation menus in the specialty restaurants of their newest vessels.
