Celebrity chef James Martin will join guests during Ocean Village cruises in November to mark the closing of his on-board restaurant. On its ‘Fond Farewell’ voyage, Martin will join the ship between 7-11 November, sailing from Cochin, India to Langkawi, Malaysia to meet passengers and present cooking demonstrations at the Bistro restaurant. James Martin cruises are also running throughout July visiting the French and Italian Rivieras. “I’ve loved being part of the Ocean Village family, travelling to some great places with a great bunch of people,” said Martin. “James really helped put Ocean Village on the map as a cruise that offered something fresh and different. Our partnership with him has given us great stand-out and added an extra shot of celebrity, style and sparkle to our holidays that passengers have loved,” said Ocean Village Head of Marketing Communications Gill Haynes.
