Why foodies love cruising

It’s food glorious food when it comes to cruises. Whether you’re a gourmand or a grazer, these sailings are enough to make anyone’s mouth water.

Cook with the stars

Simmer and sizzle with celebrity chefs Marco Pierre White, James Martin and Eric Lanlard on special P&O Cruises Food Heroes sailings; spice up a Saga Cruises voyage with demonstrations by Jean-Christophe Novelli; and learn from acclaimed Vietnamese/Australian chef Luke Nguyen on APT Mekong River sailings through Vietnam.

Lip-smacking sailings

Enjoy an epicurean extravaganza courtesy of Crystal Cruises’ floating food festivals; tuck into wine and food-themed voyages with Azamara Club Cruises and Celebrity Cruises; and relish delectable dining on Oceania, plus the rustic dishes of Jamie Oliver at Jamie’s Italian restaurants  on Royal Caribbean International.

Rivers of wine . . .

. . . and cheese, beer and chocolate on themed river cruises offering a treasure trove of tastings, banquets, demonstrations and cookery classes along the Seine, Danube, Rhone and Rhine with AmaWaterways, Tauck, Avalon and Uniworld.

Dining with a difference

Dive into dishes drowning in wisps of liquid nitrogen at the fantasy-themed Wonderland restaurants on Royal Caribbean International; savour a sensual feast at MSC Cruises’ Cirque du Soleil dinner shows; and dine against a backdrop of magic and mystery at Norwegian Cruise Line’s Illusionarium performances.

Cookery classes at sea

Brush up your baking and perfect your pasta at cookery classes held in special custom-built show kitchens on Holland America Line, Viking Cruises, Oceania and Silversea where passengers whip-up specialities of all sorts and flavours.

Foodie fun

Go shopping with the chef at local markets; visit foodie families for an authentic farm to table experience; and watch in wonder as exuberant chefs juggle with knives and eggs as they fry up an Asian teppanyaki feast at special Japanese-themed onboard restaurants.
