Chef Ben Robinson partners with Emerald on two culinary yacht sailings

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

Chef Robinson, known as an executive private yacht chef from TV’s Below Deck, will bring his distinctive culinary style to two, eight-day sailings: first in the Mediterranean onboard Emerald Cruises’ Coastal Gems of Italy and Croatia sailing departing Venice on October 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. 

Sharing a passion for food

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 customize three dinner menus for guests in La Cucina dining room during the sailings.

“As you can imagine I’m a huge fan of yacht cruising, so when I learned about Emerald Cruises’ beautiful, modern yachts, I knew I wanted to cook onboard. It’s a natural fit for me,” said Chef Robinson. “I look forward to sharing my passion for food with the guests and exploring the culinary traditions of these regions together.”

Chef Ben Robinson is accomplished on both land and sea. 

He worked under Italian master chefs in Florence and gained an apprenticeship at three-Michelin Star restaurant The Fat Duck, based in the United Kingdom.

Ben was a head chef on yachts for more than ten years, including the largest sailing yacht in the world. He is well known for his appearances on Bravo Television Network’s Below Deck, Below Deck Mediterranean, and Galley Talk and is also featured on The Food Network.

Chef Ben runs a high-end catering business for which he travels all over the United States and is known to share his masterful skill set across the world. Ben believes food is not only nourishment but medicine and art. 

He is a Certified Health Coach which gives him the upper hand with dietary restrictions. 

He enjoys the puzzling aspect of food creations and surprises each client with a one-of-a-kind tailor-made dinner experience.
