Pepin is a legendary master chef and longtime executive culinary director for Oceania Cruises, and he has been tapped to host the Jacques Pepin Cruise. The 10-day voyage will take passengers from Venice through the Mediterranean before finally returning to Rome.
Guests onboard the Marina cruise ship will be treated to book signings, meet-and-greets and a special culinary demonstration hosted by Pepin himself. Add in specially designed menus in the restaurants, epicurean-infused shore excursions and hands-on culinary instruction taking place in the Culinary Center on board, and passengers will be immersed in Pepin’s signature style.
Pepin released a statement about the Oceania Cruises journey next year, saying, “It’s such a joy sailing aboard Marina with guests who share the same passion for food, wine and overall enjoyment of life. This Mediterranean itinerary is a beautiful mix of long-established culinary destinations and some burgeoning epicurean hotspots.”
As for how much a journey like this will cost, fares for the Jacques Pepin Cruise start at $3,899 per person. Passengers can also purchase a ticket for Oceania Cruises’ Reunion Cruise that departs November 11, making it a 20-day voyage. A ticket for both cruises starts at $6,599 per person.
