Swan Hellenic reveals new cohort of JRE-Jeunes Restaurateurs chefs

The Jeunes Restaurateurs chef will serve a different signature dish every night
Swan Hellenic announced its 2024 Maris cultural expedition cruises involving JRE-Jeunes Restaurateurs, the gourmet organisation for highly-accomplished chefs under 40.

The Maris concept was first revealed in April. Swan Hellenic CEO Andrea Zito said, with JRE, the new Maris series is ‘born of our uncompromising quest to share experiences of the exceptional.’ 

There are 10 Maris voyages to choose from in 2024, from Antarctica to the Mediterranean, Europe, Scandinavia and the Arctic – six on SH Diana and four on SH Vega.

The JRE-Jeunes Restaurateurs star chefs lined up for next year’s Maris sailings are: 

SH Vega

Gregory Doucey from France (10 nights, departing Lisbon for Portsmouth on May 14); Michelin star chef Rob Krawczyk from Ireland (12 nights, departing Dublin for Reykjavik on June 4); Sören Herzig from Austria (eight nights, departing Reykjavik on August 10 for full a circumnavigation of Iceland); Michelin star chef Alexandra Müller from Switzerland (16 nights exploring the Northwest Passage, departing Kangerlussuaq in Greenland on September 9.)

SH Diana

Silvia Manser from Switzerland (with sommelier husband Thomas – 17 nights exploring the Falklands, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula, departing Ushuaia on January 21); Cristoph Hunziker from Switzerland (10 nights, departing Tromsø on July 10 to explore Svalbard); Nicolai Wiedmer from Germany (12 nights, departing Tromsø for Scotland, England and the Netherlands on July 20); Michelin star chef Eric van Bochove from the Netherlands (10 nights, departing Amsterdam for Lisbon on August 1); Sergio Tofe from Spain (10 nights, departing Lisbon for Palermo on 10 August); Nikita Sergeev from Italy (eight nights, departing Palermo on August 20 for a complete circumnavigation exploration of Sicily.) 

Two pairs of cruises in the 2024 Maris series – operated by SH Diana, departing from Tromsø in July and Lisbon in August – can be daisy-chained for a longer JRE voyage.
