Virgin Trains Eyes New Station at PortMiami

Culinary Adventures aboard Oceania Cruises

For cruisers who want to bring more back from their vacation than just great memories, Oceania Cruises has Bon Appétit Culinary Centers aboard the 1,250-passenger Marina and Riviera where you can actually learn some cooking skills.

Bon Appétit Culinary Centers

You slice and dice along with professional chef trainers from the Culinary Institute of America in a sparkling test kitchen complete with stovetops and plenty of prep space and then, BIG BONUS, you get to eat the results.

It’s no wonder the classes sell out. They’re priced at $69 per person, with advance reservations required.

And now, Oceania announced this week that it’s adding even more sizzle with new classes on its Europe routes this summer. There are also two new Culinary Discovery Tours ashore, escorted by Culinary Center chefs.
The classes reflect cruise regions, so you can work on Healthy Greek while cruising the Greek Isles, Turkish Arabesque when cruising to Istanbul, Beyond Ratatouille while cruising in France (including the favorite dishes of Oceania’s culinary advisor Jacques Pépin as well as Guy Gedda, considered the godfather of Provençal cuisine), and Modern Nordic in the Baltic Sea.

In Cork, Ireland, Oceania cruisers can now book an excursion to Ballymaloe, the country estate that’s now home to a world-renowned cooking school. You’ll tour the vegetable and herb gardens, explore the free-range poultry farm, and watch as chefs prepare a traditional Irish meal – which you get to eat.

Another new tour, The Exquisite Taste of Mallorca, takes place on cruises that visit Palma de Mallorca, Spain. You tour the marketplace, visit a country farm to learn about Spanish olive oil, and then sample fine Mediterranean-inspired cuisine with views at the top-rated restaurant, El Faro.
