Join Modernism Week's CEO Chris Mobley on ModernismWeek@Sea aboard Oceania's Marina. This 10-day cruise will visit nine culturally significant ports in the Baltic region that demonstrate how modern influences in architecture and design have been artfully folded into these sometimes ancient cities. Modernism Week guests will explore Denmark, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Estonia, Finland and Russia through special Modernism Week-curated parties and tour.

A highlight will be an optional tour in Helsinki to visit Alvar Aalto's studio and house. After qualifying as an architect from Helsinki Institute of Technology (later Helsinki University of Technology and now part of the Aalto University) in 1921, Aalto set up his first architectural practice in Jyvaskyla. His early works followed the tenets of Nordic Classicism, the predominant style at that time. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, he made a number of journeys to Europe on which he and his wife Aino Marsio, also an architect, became familiar with the latest trends in Modernism, the International Style.

The Aalto House, completed in 1936, is a classic example of this noted designer and architect’s style that embraced individual expression, uniqueness of design and uncharted experimentation. The house has a residential wing clad in stained-timber slats, and a white-washed brick section.  It is accompanied by a studio, built in the 1950s. Both structures feature stunning design elements such as Aalto’s lighting pendants, bentwood furniture and architectural models, Berber rugs, high-reaching vines and white walls. This residence and studio are photogenic spaces. Their calming harmony is a clear and holistic realization of Aalto’s vision.


In addition to participating in a rich array of optional port excursions offered by Oceania Cruises, ModernismWeek@Sea participants will be able to enjoy several private events especially organized for this group such as “Cocktails over Copenhagen,” “From Russia with Love - Vodka Martini Party” and an “Asian Modern” dinner hosted by Chris Mobley.

Optional limited-participation opportunities include a “Mod Bites” cooking class that will showcase favorite mid-century cocktails and hors d’oeuvres of the era and an exclusive dinner limited to 24 guests in the extravagant La Reserve dining room hosted by Chris Mobley. This seven-course dinner experience is called “La Cuisine Bourgeoise” and was designed by the legendary Jacques Pepin, Oceania's Executive Culinary Director. It will feature classic French dishes from the 1950's and 1960's, and each course will be dramatically served from gleaming silver trays and paired with expertly selected wines by Wine Spectator.

ModernismWeek@Sea participants will receive a rare, insiders-view of the Baltic region's modernist architecture, and when they return to the ship, they will be able to enjoy Oceania’s lavish amenities, luxurious accommodations and choose to dine at our many onboard complimentary restaurants as they travel to their next destination. 

 

A BLEND OF MODERN & MEDIEVAL

Northern Europe is a destination of stark natural beauty, historic artistry and local charm. This is a place to find new inspirations from old creations and a deeper appreciation for the potential of the human spirit. Be captivated by the beauty of a grand, 18th century Russian palace, where the governors of St. Petersburg once entertained the nobility of Europe. Every room and corridor is a work of art, designed and built by European master of architecture and craftsmanship. Further to the north, across the Baltic, rests the mystical and icy lands of Scandinavia. Stockholm, a city that blends the modern with the medieval, spans more than a dozen small islands on the edge of these northern waters. The northern reaches of Europe are a place like no other.

Champagne is effortlessly matched with dishes which are thoughtfully crafted to bring out the nuances of the grapes and the ratio of the blend, playing off every aspect from subtle, effervescent nose to lively, satisfying finish. From Brittany Blue Lobster in Yellow Curry Broth with Coco Foam to Sashimi-Style Seared Wagyu Beef with Sautéed Arugula, Blood Orange-Soya Jus and Caviar Perlita, each beguiling bite is a celebration of the finer things in life. While the Dom Pérignon Experience is the perfect complement to any joyous occasion, it transcends even this lofty role. In true French spirit, it becomes the culinary manifestation of joie de vivre. Minimum participation is 24. $315 per person
