On Ovation of the Seasâ„ , the culinary adventure starts as soon as you get onboard, with 18 different dining venues to choose from, including the hugely popular Jamie’s Italian – the perfect place for the whole family to explore new flavours.

Jamie Oliver himself remembers food being a huge part of his childhood holidays, with his parents always encouraging him to try new things. ‘It’s not about what you don’t like, it’s about what you could like!’ he says, which is why at his restaurant, there are plenty of fun ways to get kids to try new foods. Take a look at the fresh pasta being made in-house every day, or order some dishes to share so that everyone can try something different.
