Oceania Cruises has announced two special Mediterranean voyages aboard the Marina aimed at culinary aficionados and long-standing fans of the brand.
Jacques Pépin, the legendary master chef and longtime executive culinary director for Oceania Cruises, will host the Jacques Pépin Cruise on November 1, 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 onboard; all focused on highlighting Pépin’s signature style.
The next sailing will host the 13th annual Oceania Cruises Reunion Cruise. Departing on November 11 and highlighting the 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 Jacques Pepin Cruise and Reunion Cruise start at $3,899 per person. 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 $6,599.
