Oceania Cruises is introducing two special Mediterranean voyages on board the 1,250-gust luxury cruise ship `Marina’, guaranteed to appeal to culinary aficionados and long-standing fans of the upper-premium brand.
Jacques Pépin, the legendary master chef and long-time Executive Culinary Director for Oceania Cruises, will host the Jacques Pépin Cruise on 1st November 2016. The Venice to Rome voyage will include book signings, meet-and-greets and a special culinary demonstration hosted by Pépin. During the 10-day cruise, guests will be treated to specially designed menus in the restaurants, epicurean-infused shore excursions and hands-on culinary instruction taking place in the state-of-the-art Culinary Center on board; all focused on highlighting Pépin’s signature style.
“It’s such a joy sailing on board Marina with guests who share the same passion for food, wine and overall enjoyment of life,” said Pépin. “This Mediterranean itinerary is a beautiful mix of long-established culinary destinations and some burgeoning epicurean hotspots.”
The next sailing will host the 13th annual Oceania Cruises Reunion Cruise. Departing on 11th November 2016 and highlighting the Magical Mediterranean, this Rome to Lisbon sailing will visit eight ports of call in Italy, Monaco, Spain, Gibraltar and the French Riviera. The voyage is open to all guests, but offers premium amenities for Oceania Club members, or past guests of Oceania Cruises. Extras for Oceania Club members include special cocktail parties, celebratory dinners, wine-pairing events in La Reserve by Wine Spectator, exclusive shore excursions, a reunion cruise gift and other surprises.
Cruises fares for both the Jacques Pepin Cruise and Reunion Cruise start from €2399 per person, including all meals on board, complimentary bottled water and soft drinks. Oceania Cruises also developed an Extended Journey option for guests looking to experience both the Jacques Pépin Cruise and Reunion Cruise. The 20-night sailing provides additional savings for guests with cruise fares starting at €4559 per guest.
