Carnival Cruise Line will introduce a new culinary studio experience, Carnival Kitchen, debuting on Carnival Panorama in December 2019. It will offer more than 15 diverse cooking courses, led by the line’s chefs.
“We’re committed to providing our guests with memorable onboard experiences, and now, they’ll have the opportunity to explore the art of cooking alongside our incredible culinary team in a fun, informative and interactive atmosphere,” said Cyrus Marfatia, vice president of culinary and dining for Carnival Cruise Line. “We’ve created a diverse selection of experiences that cater to every type of palate, so whether our guests want to learn how to master their favourite foods or want to try something new, Carnival Kitchen has it all.”
Sample Carnival Kitchen offerings include the Carnival classics workshop class with dinner, the Orient Unknown class with dinner, a cake workshop and a pasta master class. Additional classes include sushi rolling, pizza making and pie baking, among many others, and participants have the opportunity to indulge in tastings and sample their creations.
The cruise line will offer one-hour and two-hour morning, afternoon and early evening sessions, primarily on sea days, with each class accommodating up to 18 guests at a time. Reservations for the classes can be made on Carnival’s website pre-cruise or at any restaurant once on board.
The Carnival Kitchen, located on Deck 4 aft, features nine marbled-granite cooking and prep stations with individual sinks, refrigerators and stovetops as well as all necessary tools, utensils and ingredients. The space is accented with white and grey pattern-tiled floors and steel ceilings and walls.
A dedicated dining area within the Carnival Kitchen will let guests in the evening classes enjoy a themed sit-down dinner included in the price of the class. Class prices range between US$30-59 (€27-53), and Carnival Kitchen-branded items are available for purchase on board.
