Oceania Launches Themed Cruises
Oceania Cruises is to offer food-, wine- and music-themed cruises for the first time. New for 2012, the "Signature Sailings" include 10 voyages exploring culinary, wine, music and health themes, with seminars, hands on classes and special events.
Oceania's executive culinary director, Master ChefJacques Pepin, will lead the 10-day "Tuscan Artistry"
cruise from Barcelona to Rome, aboard Marinain May. In the same month, "Mediterranean Tapestry" on the 684-passenger Nautica will see six jazz musicians perform stage shows and jam sessions, sailing from Athens to Barcelona.
An Italian wine immersion on Regatta in July includes lectures, tastings and wine bar experiences featuring guest experts and live music. Two wellness sailings will offer spin, yoga and pilates classes, Canyon Ranch spa cuisine, and healthy eating and fitness tips on the "Pearls of the Aegean" departing Venice in August and "Accent on Italy" departing in October.
Oceania Cruises' President, Bruce Himelstein, will host a 10-day voyage through the Mediterranean in October, and two reunion cruises for past passengers will take place in Europe and South America.
