Foodies who are also cruise enthusiasts can now choose travel experiences tailored to their twin passions.
From August through October 2014, the new Cruising with the Chefs, founded by Lisa and Rodney George of St. Louis, Mo. and Naples, Fla., offers three culinary cruises with celebrity guest chefs exclusively aboard Oceania’s Marina and Riviera ships. The cruises showcase the ships’ Bon Appétit Culinary Centers, the only hands-on culinary centers at sea.
Each 2014 cruise is “a cruise within a cruise, with rock-star chefs,” according to Cruising with the Chefs’ Rodney George. The 2014 chefs are:
· Paul Virant, chef-owner of Michelin-starred Vie in Western Springs, Ill., cruising from Istanbul to Venice, August 5-15;
· Brian and Shanna O’Hea, chef-owners of The Kennebunk Inn and its restaurant, Academe Maine Brasserie and Tavern, cruising from Amsterdam to Barcelona, September 2-14;
· and Christy Rost, a PBS chef, author, and entertaining guru, cruising from Athens to Barcelona, October 2-12.
Itinerary highlights include cooking classes with the guest chef and chef-led shore excursions with special entree to local markets and restaurants. At featured ports-of-call, each chef will integrate local, fresh ingredients and indigenous culinary traditions in their classes and hosted meals. Personal time with the chefs at welcome and farewell receptions, as well as wine tastings, are other amenities of each Cruising with the Chefs experience.
Founders Rodney and Lisa George, passionate cruisers and foodies, personally host guests and work with guest chefs on designing itineraries adapted to each chef’s philosophy and style of cuisine.
Guests choose basic pricing based on cabin categories offered by Oceania, and from a range of a la carte culinary experiences offered by Cruising with the Chefs.
Paul Virant’s and Christy Rost’s cruises are both aboard Oceania’s Riviera, and range from $4,299 to $6,699 per guest for the Paul Virant cruise, and from $3,799 to $6,099 for the Christy Rost cruise. Pricing for the Shanna and Brian O’Hea cruise aboard Oceania’s Marina ranges from $5,499 to $6,899. Prices are per person.
The cost includes free round trip air transportation from 26 major North American gateways; private sail-away reception hosted by the guest chef; farewell cocktail party, and fine dining in four specialty restaurants.
Most sailings also include pre-paid gratuities, gourmet culinary program created by renowned master chef Jacques Pepin, port-intensive itineraries with overnight visits and extended port stays, Canyon Ranch Spa Club, staff-to-guest ration of 1 to 1.5, and 24-hour butler service in penthouse suites and above.
Optional culinary experiences include small group classes with guest chefs in the ships’ Bon Appétit Culinary Centers ($69-$79 per person); off-the-ship visits to local markets; packages of shore excursions at 25-40% off standard prices; wine tastings ($25-$50 per person); seven-course dinner in the 24-seat La Reserve restaurant, prepared by Oceania’s executive chef with wine pairings by Wine Spectator ($95 to $165); and travel protection group insurance.
“Cruising foodies seek enlightenment beyond a library or lecture,” said Cruising with the Chefs’ Rodney George. “Our cruises offer once-in-a-lifetime journeys with acclaimed, well-known chefs aboard Oceania’s Marina and Riviera, among the most elegant and sophisticated ships at sea.”

Details about the ships and chefs
Paul Virant, August 5-15, 2014, Istanbul to Venice
“I’m thrilled to be working with Cruising with the Chefs on my first trip to Italy, and I’m especially excited to explore the urban cultures of Venice and the eclectic food scene in Istanbul. The experience for me and the Riviera’s guests will open my eyes to a whole new arena of food and cooking, so it will be great to come back home with a broader knowledge of flavors and techniques to use in my kitchen,” said Paul Virant.
Since opening his flagship restaurant Vie in Western Springs, Ill., in 2004, Chef Paul Virant has risen to nationwide acclaim for his contemporary Midwestern cuisine. His philosophy of local, seasonal eating stems from techniques he learned on his family’s farm in Missouri that continue to spark his creativity today. In addition to Michelin-starred Vie, he brings his culinary prowess to the city’s Lincoln Park neighborhood as partner and executive chef of Boka Restaurant Group’s Perennial Virant, which he opened in 2011, followed by the J. Parker, the rooftop lounge and bar, both located at Hotel Lincoln.
Virant’s accolades include: a just-announced nomination for James Beard Foundation’s 2014 Best Chef: Great Lakes; a 2013 finalist and a 2011 nominee for James Beard Foundation’s Best Chef: Great Lakes; 2007 Best New Chef by Food & Wine; 2007 Jean Banchet Award for Culinary Excellence as Top Celebrity Chef; and 2005 Best New Chef by Chicago magazine in 2005. He has also competed on Food Network’s “Iron Chef America.” Vie earned its Michelin star in 2011.
Brian and Shanna O’Hea, September 2-14, 2014, Amsterdam to Barcelona
“The cruise experience is a great way for us to connect with our guests while relaxing, seeing new places, and enjoying one of our favorite things – food,” said Shanna O’Hea. “We can’t wait to share this experience with people who are as excited as we are to be cooking and tasting our way from Amsterdam to Barcelona. It’s an incredible experience to be able to visit multiple parts of the world in total luxury, sample local cuisine, and introduce new cooking styles into our everyday lives.”
Brian and Shanna Horner O’Hea are the chef-owners of The Kennebunk Inn and its restaurant, Academe Maine Brasserie and Tavern. They love to travel and have participated in culinary events around the world, including the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, the Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair, and the Kennebunkport Festival. They have been guest chefs on Holland America Cruise Line. The O’Heas run MaineLobsterPotPie.com, which ships fresh Maine seafood overnight across the United States. Their signature Lobster Pot Pie and Lobster White Truffle Pizza have been featured in Oprah Magazine, and on Food Network and the Travel Channel.
Christy Rost, October 2-12, 2014, Athens to Barcelona PBS chef, author, and entertaining guru
Christy Rost’s expertise in cooking, decorating, and celebrating home and family is featured nationwide each year on PBS stations and Create TV in her one-hour Holiday production A Home for Christy Rost: Thanksgiving, which serves as an introduction to Christy’s forthcoming national television series, Celebrating Home with Christy Rost, which is currently in pre-production.
Chef Rost’s Mediterranean cruise aboard Oceania’s Riviera with Cruising with the Chefs allows her to share personal stories about her relationship with Julia Child. Guests who accompany Chef Rost on a shore excursion in Marseilles will have the opportunity to “retrace the steps of Julia Child” during a brief visit to the Vieux Port. Julia Child and her husband Paul lived in a small apartment overlooking this colorful harbor while she was writing portions of her first cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
“I’m excited to partner with Oceania Cruises and Cruising With The Chefs for this one-of-a-kind, culinary cruise,” said Rost. “I’ve cruised many times, but the Riviera’s exquisite appointments, Oceania’s emphasis on superb food and wine, and the sincere personal warmth of her staff, far surpasses my expectations. For one whose focus is on Celebrations, Oceania’s Riviera offers an exceptional opportunity for me to celebrate with my guests while spoiling them at every turn.”

Chapman Freeborn collaborates with EYOS Expeditions to offer air charter and yacht voyages to some of the most remote places on Earth
The expeditions will see travellers visit the polar landscapes of the Arctic and Antarctic as well as crossing the majestic Northwest Passage.
Chapman Freeborn, the world’s leading air charter specialist, has collaborated with EYOS Expeditions to offer a luxurious twist on adventures to some of the most remarkable and often inaccessible places on the planet.
The collaboration aligns charter experts in both aviation and yachting, allowing travellers to travel by private jet to key destinations worldwide with Chapman Freeborn, before boarding a luxurious expedition yacht and voyaging to the destination of their choice with EYOS Expeditions.
EYOS’ launch trip in 2014 is a 10-night expedition departing from Bodo, Norway and ending up in the wild archipelago of Svalbard. On route, the trip takes in some of the most breath-taking coastline and fjords that Norway has to offer, as well as offering the opportunity for travellers to explore stunning islands and immerse themselves in unique ocean cultures. Svalbard offers over 24,000 square miles of breath-taking arctic wilderness, and adventurers will have the chance to witness polar bears hunting for seals, kayak amidst dazzling icebergs, cruise the face of stunning glaciers and hike with expert guides across the tundra.

EYOS charters incredible expedition class yachts purpose built for operating in remote regions without sacrificing luxurious interiors. Examples of the features on board their vessels include helicopter pads, saunas and massage treatment rooms as wells as expansive owner’s suites with 180 degree views.

Whatever the destination and departure point, Chapman Freeborn are able to utilise their worldwide reach and localised expertise to arrange private jet charters that meet a client’s specific schedule, with the utmost discretion, luxury and safety.

Ben Lyons, CEO of EYOS Expeditions, added, “EYOS offers true, once-in-a-lifetime experiences, whether watching a curious polar bear approach the yacht across the frozen sea, or experiencing the joy of having a 40 ton whale surface nearby your Zodiac. Collaborating with Chapman Freeborn will give us the capability and resources to ensure our guests’ exceptional experiences continue until the moment they reach home.”

The MS Fram expedition ship is currently loaded with two barrels of 21- and 25-year-old single malt whisky, which it is transporting from one end of the world to the other – a process that is said to refine the noble Scottish drop even further. After crossing the Antarctic Circle, the ship will head north to Greenland and Spitsbergen, with en-route stops scheduled in Scotland where the whisky was first produced.
The two 150-litre barrels of American oak filled with fine Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky which will cross four magical seafaring lines: the northern and southern polar circle, the zero meridian and the equator, have been firmly anchored on deck 9 in preparation for the long journey.
The ‘MS Fram Expedition Whisky’ limited edition bottle. The single malt will carry its own, unique label and will be available to purchase on-board later this year, complete with a whisky diary and a certificate.
“We hope that the continuous rolling wave movements, temperature changes and sea air will further improve the excellent quality of our single malt and have a positive effect on it,” says MS Fram captain Arild Harvik. “As this is the first time that we have undertaken such a project, we filled a test bottle to check for changes in colour, strength and taste before and after the voyage”.
After just over ten months onboard MS Fram and over 126,000 kilometres travelled, the whisky will be transferred to limited edition bottles, with no more than 200 per barrel. The whisky is cask strength, meaning that after maturing in the barrel, it will not be diluted with water but will be filled directly from the barrel into the bottles. As the “MS Fram Expedition Whisky”, the single malt will carry its own, unique label and will be available to purchase on-board later this year, complete with a whisky diary and a certificate. The “MS Fram Expedition Whisky” can also be sampled in the bar of the expedition ship.
The topic ‘whisky and its origin’ are covered in two voyages on-board MS Fram in April and May. Both start in the Norwegian city of Bergen with the 12-day “British Isles in the Spring” (24th April – 5th May 2014) journey covering Scotland, Ireland and England, while “The Viking Route” (13th – 25th May 2014), lasts 13 days, and visits Scotland, the Faroe Islands and Iceland.
Both journeys are accompanied by Scottish lecturer and whisky expert Bernard McGee, who will share his knowledge of single malt scotch whisky and arrange some tastings during the voyage.
Prices for ‘The Viking Route’ voyage start from £2,474 per person, twin share for an inside cabin on full board basis. Transfers are available for an additional cost.

The West African Cruise Expedition, first operated in 2013, is a 32-day trip originating in Cape Town, South Africa, and finishing in Marrakech, Morocco. It visits 14 countries along the way. Smaller sections of the trip are also offered as separate purchases.
The first leg of the trip from Cape Town to Accra, Ghana can be taken separately, as can the latter half from Accra to Marrakech. The smaller trips are discounted 15 percent on bookings made through April 30.
The full trip includes 29 days aboard the MS Expedition. Although it is a ship-based trip, it is operated in an expedition style that has little in common with the kind of big ship cruises that dominate the American cruise market.
There are no rock climbing walls, no Vegas-style stage acts. The ship is not a floating resort but is rather an expedition vessel that is designed to take its passengers to remote destinations.
The ship is a rich environment steeped in nautical lore, but unlike the big mass market cruise ships the emphasis is on the destinations, not on the on-board entertainment. The itinerary includes visits to a number of remote villages along the way that would be difficult to reach traveling by land.
The shore excursions are rich encounters with local culture as well as wildlife and the natural environment. On-board activities are extensions of the explorations on land, with lectures and presentations by experts in various subjects relating to the locations visited.
“This trip visits local communities, markets and villages during the day then back on the ship we have historians, wine sommeliers, natural history experts and painters so the learning experience really does continue at sea,” said Steve Lima, the US marketing manager for G Adventures.
The 32-day package includes two hotel nights, one in Cape Town and one in Marrakech. All meals are included on board the ship. To receive the 15 percent discount, use promo code G14WAF15EBB and for the 20 percent discount use G14WAF20EBB as promo code at time of booking.
In the Australian Summer months, when we’ve reached peak temperatures, mosquitos are gnawing at our legs and our clothes cling to our bodies we find ourselves day dreaming about cooler days ahead. Days where you can spend an afternoon out in the sun without melting, when your iced water won’t turn tepid and shoulders aren’t redden by the second.
Autumn arrives and it’s like our prayers have been answered… but then all too soon, knitted jumpers, boots and umbrellas become mandatory accessories. You think to yourself – wouldn’t it be perfect if it was Spring? The most romantic season of all, appointed with ideals of rebirth and cleansing, dreams, exploration and discovery.
Spring is a perfect time for unearthing ancient towns, uncovering hidden secrets and delighting in generation to generation passed-down desserts and savoury delights. In the Spring months, these pleasures won’t be smothered by an overbearing Summer’s sun or spoiled by looming grey clouds. You’ll be able to dive into the world’s most iconic sea, surrounded by jagged mountains and made clear by pebbled seasides, and feel revitalised, re-energised and reignited…
Doesn’t this sound tempting? As miraculous as it would be it is not impossible. Let the magic of an MSC cruise transform your standard Autumn into the perfect place and time, that is: Spring in the Mediterranean.
Cruise past iconic and picturesque shorelines in the absolute comfort of a summer dress and shoal (or cool cotton shorts and shirts for the gents). Experience sheer luxury at ease as a refreshing Spring breeze whips through your hair and whistles ocean melodies from a dream time come true. Indulge in Italian inspired dishes each night that will tantalise your taste buds whilst you mingle with new friends and revisit your journeys from your cruise trip thus far.
Be swept up in our unique world that is cruising; where friends turn into family, days morph into nights and your cabin view changes from town to town, region to region, country to country. Imagine the likes of the Greek Islands, French seasides, Italian country towns and Spanish city centres welcoming you each day.
Envisage a mirage of colour, music, romance, inviting cultures, new friendships, gastronomy, carafes of vino, dance and laughter. This is what your life aboard a stunning state of the art MSC ship in Spring would comprise. Watch the our #MedWayOfLife video for some journey inspiration.
