Cruise ships serve up local celebrity chefs and DJs
Taking a port city’s big attractions from land to sea is easy in a city like Miami, and it’s a strategy cruise lines can adopt in more ports to engage residents and get them on more ships.
Excerpt from South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Major cruise lines are finding new ways to tap the expertise of local companies and personalities to enhance their shipboard guest offerings.
Royal Caribbean International, for example, formed a partnership with James Beard Award-winning Miami chef Michael Schwartz of Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink.
Since October Schwartz has been creating specialty, multi-course tasting menus, which integrate produce and meat sourced from South Florida farmers for 150 Central Park — Oasis of the Seas’ fine dining restaurant.
