MasterChef Junior comes to MSC Cruises and little chefs will love it

MSC Cruises is giving budding chefs the chance to put their skills to the test in a fun-filled new offering for families across its fleet.

The luxury cruise line is launching MasterChef Juniors at Sea, a brand new exclusive kids’ cooking competition, where passengers aged 5-12 can take part in an exciting two-stage cooking competition.

The programme will see children taking part in a unique interactive cooking masterclasses with the ship’s Executive Chef to help them create culinary masterpieces (and they’ll get some healthy eating tips along the way!)

For the second part, 20 children will be selected at random from the theatre audience to take part in the ‘mystery box challenge’. They will be given a box of ingredients and asked to create a special recipe (with a helping hand from the chef of course!) which will be judged by a panel.

Families can cheer on their little MasterChefs from the audience – and there are plenty of prizes to be won too.

The recipes, created by 2013 MasterChef contestant Rukmini Iyer, will use fresh and healthy ingredients where possible, teaching kids to practice useful techniques such as grating, cutting and peeling. T

At the moment the programme is available on MSC Seaview only, but the cruise line is looking to roll out the family-friendly activity across its entire fleet starting from March 2019.

It marks an expansion of MSC’s MasterChef at Sea programme for adults as part of partnership with the hit show’s producers Endemol Shine Group.

Gianni Onorato, CEO of MSC Cruises commented: "As a family-owned company, MSC Cruises has always put the needs of families and kids at the heart of the cruise experience and this latest announcement further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing wide and diverse family entertainment.

"We are particularly proud to be extending our partnership with MasterChef to include the younger members of the family.

"We already offer a comprehensive schedule of activities around the clock for kids of all ages, but we have worked tirelessly with the producers of MasterChef to create an immersive experience that is fun and interactive."
