Oceania Cruises Expands Culinary Discovery Tours to South Pacific

Oceania Cruises this winter is expanding its Culinary Discovery Tours to the South Pacific on the Marina. Culinary Discovery Tours let guests explore local food markets, vineyards and farms in small groups, along with an expert chef from the Bon Appétit Culinary Center. Participants then join the chef in the culinary center for a hands-on cooking lesson of the regional cuisine in one of 24 fully equipped work stations.

The new South Pacific Culinary Discovery Tours are offered in the Bay of Islands and Tauranga, New Zealand, on the 18-day “South Pacific Paradise” cruise. Departing Papeete, Tahiti, on Feb. 7, the cruise calls on 11 ports throughout French Polynesia, Samoa, Fiji, Vanuatu and New Caledonia before arriving in New Zealand.

“A Chef-Insider’s Food & Wine Feast” Culinary Discovery Tour in the Bay of Islands visits Kerikeri, a horticultural center and home to Ake Ake winery for a tasting with the head vintner and a meal created from locally grown foods. The culinary tour in Tauranga, “Maori ‘Kai’ Cooking Demo and Kiwi Fruit,” explores a kiwi orchard followed by a trip to the lakes of Rotorua for a traditional Maori luncheon.
