Carnival Cruise Lines will introduce its first-ever teppanyaki dining venue on the 133,500-ton Carnival Horizon, which debuts in Europe in spring 2018.
Teppanyaki is a traditional method of Japanese cooking whose name is derived from the combination of the words ‘teppan’ (iron plate) and ‘yaki’ (grilled or pan-fried). Bonsai Teppanyaki will combine ancient Japanese cooking techniques with modern performance art to “create a feast that is both culinary and visual”.
“The new Bonsai Teppanyaki promises to be a wonderful addition to the Carnival Horizon, offering delectable cuisine from the Far East enhanced by show-stopping performances by our talented and engaging chefs,” said Christine Duffy, Carnival’s president.
Carnival Horizon is scheduled to make its maiden voyage on 2 April 2018, a 13-day Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona – the first of four round-trip departures from that port. Carnival Horizon will then reposition to the US with a 14-day transatlantic crossing from Barcelona to New York from 9-23 May 2018.
