A nine-station culinary learning center will be onboard the Carnival Panorama when the Carnival Cruise Line ship debuts next month in Long Beach.

Called the Carnival Kitchen, it will be the first space dedicated for cooking classes on a Carnival ship.

Located on Deck 4 aft, Carnival Kitchen will have nine marbled-granite cooking and prep stations with individual sinks, refrigerators and stovetops as well as utensils and ingredients.

Guests can choose from among 15 classes taught by Carnival chefs, including courses on pasta making, cake baking, Asian entrees and a class centered around some of the favorite menu items on Carnival ships.

One-hour and two-hour morning, afternoon and early evening sessions are available primarily on sea days and can be reserved pre-cruise or onboard.

Class prices range between $30 and $59.
