The Venice to Rome, 10-day cruise featured book signings, social gatherings and a unique culinary demonstration by chef Pépin. Cruise guests were treated to Pepin-designed special dinner menus in the Marina’s restaurants and “epicurean-infused” land excursions. Chef Pepin also presented cooking instructions aboard the ship’s state-of-the-art Culinary Center, all centered around chef Pepin’s signature style.
The Oceania Marina was built with the “ultimate epicurean” in mind. It debuted in January 2011, along with a sister ship, The Riviera, each featuring the first hands-on cooking schools at sea. Among the Marina’s four specialty dining venues are “Red Ginger,” with Asian-inspired cuisine and “Jacques” the master chef’s unique restaurant at sea.
