Emerald Cruises Partners With Chef Ben Robinson

Emerald Cruises has partnered with Chef Ben Robinson for two culinary-themed sailings onboard the line’s 100-guest yachts, Emerald Azzurra and Emerald Sakara.

Chef Robinson, best known as an executive private yacht chef from TV’s Below Deck, will bring his distinctive culinary style to two, 8-day sailings: first in the Mediterranean onboard Emerald Cruises’ Coastal Gems of Italy and Croatia sailing departing Venice on Oct. 28, 2023, then to the Caribbean on the Hidden Charms of the Caribbean sailing departing San Juan, Puerto Rico, on March 2, 2024.

Guests joining these special departures will have multiple opportunities to sample Chef Robinson’s cuisine while interacting with and learning from him. At an evening welcome reception that kicks off each sailing, guests will meet the chef and enjoy a signature cocktail.

During an onboard cooking demonstration, Chef Robinson will share his creations from locally-sourced ingredients, along with cooking tips with time for an interactive Q&A session.

A special shore excursion with Chef Ben creates opportunities to savour the flavours of each region together. Finally, Chef Robinson will customise three dinner menus for guests in La Cucina dining room during the sailings.
