Norwegian Cruise Line announced this week that Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian will be aboard two of its cruises later this year
Earlier this year, Zakarian opened three seafood-centric dining venues — his first restaurants at sea — onboard the cruise line’s Norwegian Breakaway ship: The Raw Bar, which features crustaceans and cocktails; Ocean Blue on The Waterfront, a more casual dining spot; and Ocean Blue by Geoffrey Zakarian, the most elegant of the three. On the Nov. 3 and Dec. 1 sailings of the ship, fans will be able to interact with the chef at Ocean Blue.
According to the press release, Zakarian will host a number of events over the course of the cruises, including meet-and-greets and book-signing sessions with the ship’s 4,000 passengers. A select few will have the opportunity to attend an intimate dinner with Zakarian and "enjoy a specially-curated Ocean Blue tasting menu served by the Iron Chef himself."
Norwegian Breakaway also has an onboard bakery by Cake Boss star Buddy Valastro.
