Food epitomizes a destination’s love for tradition, culture and innovation – it transcends borders and connects people. As you travel and meet local chefs, writers, sommeliers and farmers, you learn that the food, the recipes and the culinary traditions have a way of weaving memories and moments together harmoniously.
And one of the best ways to enjoy these stories and culinary passions is on board a cruise.
Our partner cruise lines are going far beyond normal gastronomic experiences and pilgrimages, and are creating once-in-a-lifetime epicurean occasions for every single guest.
Hungry globetrotters are now getting the chance to cook with Michelin-starred chefs in professional kitchens, explore spice markets and fresh fruit stalls with food experts; dine with local families in homes and huts, and sample street fare in diverse ports all around the world.
These food-focused and cultured cruises make up our exclusive Culinary Collection. Every departure, every voyage and every divine expedition features curated moments you crave as a gourmet traveler, plus additional amenities just for booking with us.
From complimentary bottles of wine in your luxe stateroom to cooking classes on board and on shore and local food excursions all over the world – you’ll indulge in a world of epicurean delights no matter which cruise you choose.
After all, food has power. It amazes, astonishes, surprises, shocks, delights and excites.
