WHY CULINARY TRAVEL
The perfect trip is a tapestry of sights and sounds, experiences to touch and, yes, to taste. To live a trip fully is to experience it with all five of your senses.
Food is a unifier of cultures. It’s a combination of centuries of people in a region designing their foods cultures with tweaks and changes as people migrated into the area.
Food is an indicator of local agriculture and careers. It’s built on the spices and food products of the area and brought together by those who raise those crops along with generations of cooks.
Food brings people together. Whether daily or for special occasions, we join in fellowship over meals with discussion and laughter.
We have vacations available for you which celebrate the experience of food and beverages to further enhance your vacation. You don’t need to be a “foodie.” These trips just include extra components whether you book into a culinary-enhanced vacation or into an escorted group that includes experiences that weave food and drinks into a true vacation feast.
Each special sailing includes at least one exclusive culinary offer. To enjoy added culinary experiences by booking into one of our Culinary Cruise Collection sailings with one of these lines, click here.
