Oceania Cruises are well-known for their bespoke service and outstanding itineraries, but the luxury line is now teaming up for a voyage with a difference. In association with Artful Travellers, one of the Oceania fleet is to become the venue for a very special event – the world premiere of PBS documentary series, The Italian Americans.
PBS have a long legacy of creating award-winning documentary films for American television audiences. Their newest entry is no exception, with revered actor Stanley Tucci providing the narration for the epic, four-part series.
Not only will the premiere take place on-board the sleek mid-size Oceania Regatta, but they’ll be further screenings available throughout a specialised voyage which is a truly unique entry into the cruising calendar.
The Enchanting Riviera voyage, which departs on the 29th October 2014, will take in some of the finest highlights of the Mediterranean and Italian coasts over a 10-day sailing. Accompanying the passengers on-board will be the producers, writers and directors who were involved in the creation of the new documentary series.
The talented filmmakers will be hosting screenings for each episode of the four-part series, with scheduled talks providing countless insights into the production. Question and answer sessions at the end of each showing means that guests will have an unmissable chance to learn about the brand-new PBS documentary.
Scheduled to appear during the cruise are Jeff Bieber, the executive producer for the Italian Americans and a long-time creative force in news, specials and public broadcasting, John Maggio, the writer, producer and director of the series. Also making an appearance will be Maria Luarino, a creative nonfiction professor at New York University, and expert on Italian American history.
Best of all, these events will be entirely complimentary for every Oceania Cruises passenger on-board. Of course, if you’d like to learn even more, there’s even the chance to indulge in private dinners with the writers and producers, enjoy wine-tasting sessions with the finest Italian vintages, as well as a book signing event.
These specialist Oceania Cruises events have space for the first 300 guests to book the Enchanting Riviera voyage with the promotional code ‘ARTFUL’ – so book now if you’d like to enjoy a fascinating historical experience to complement a luxury Oceania Cruise.
