Cruises for Foodies

If your ideal vacation includes a glass (or three) of local Rosé and an Instagram-worthy meal, you’ve come to the right place. Our onboard dining features fresh culinary options, made from locally sourced ingredients. Or hop off the ship and head to a famed local restaurant or local home, thanks to our VizEat partnership. Many of our excursions have a culinary theme and take you to vineyards and breweries, on bar crawls and to local cafés.
