A cruise is not only an opportunity to travel the world and the seven seas, to discover extraordinary places and people. It is also a complete travel experience that has entertainment, world-class accommodation, stellar services and high-end cuisine. Here are the most exquisite tastes of some cruise lines that have teamed up with famous chefs to give clients unforgettable culinary experiences.
The ships of Oceania Cruises are under the wizardry of Master Chef Jacques Pepin. The dishes reflect the area where the ships sail, bringing fresh ingredients and authenticity to the whole cruising experience.
In Jacques, the restaurant bearing the master chef’s name on Oceania’s Marina you can sample magnificent courses of classic French cuisine. If you are looking for authentic Italian cuisine then Toscana is the restaurant where you can taste Vulcano di Capelli D’ Angelo alla Sorrentina and a glass of super Tuscan Antinori Solaia wine.
The dining experience at restaurant Qsine® on Celebrity Eclipse starts with an order from an iPad because they want to make the whole dining process an interactive and interesting one. Master Chef James Beard has taken global classic dishes and re-invented them for his guests. Try the Sushi Lollipops, Disco Shrimp or the Persian Kebob.
Murano has an even more sophisticated level of French continental dining and it has a special Five Senses Menu.
You will experience another haute cuisine and cruising adventure on Ventura’s The White Room, a specialty restaurant where you will taste dishes created by Marco Pierre White. If the parfait de foie gras is too rich for you why not try porcini and artichoke gnocchi and something sweet – Marco’s version of Tiramisu.
Silk Road and The Sushi Bar serve food prepared by chefs trained by Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa. A convenient way to taste Nobu’s most popular dishes is to try the Nobu Box.
Royal Caribbean Cruises
Jamie’s Italian restaurant will open on Royal Caribbean Quantum of the Seas in November 2014. The Jamie’s Italian team promise fresh ingredients and fresh pasta made from scratch every day.
A cruise holiday combines luxury accommodation, charming places, world-class cuisine, amazing services and endless entertainment options. As Robert N. Rose said “Ships are the nearest thing to dreams that hands have ever made”.
