Seabourn is pulling out all the stops to create a rare epicurean themed cruise aboard Seabourn Sojourn. Guests aboard the 11-day "Best of the Riviera Food & Wine Cruise" will visit some of Europe's most appealing food and wine regions, enjoying daily special culinary events, "Shopping with the Chef" excursions in local markets, cooking demonstrations by celebrity guest chefs, tastings of local specialties and more. The culinary voyage will depart October 30, 2014 from Monte Carlo and sail the French and Italian Rivieras to Rome.
"Seabourn is synonymous with fine dining and superb cuisine that delights guests on every voyage," said John Delaney, Seabourn's senior vice president of marketing and sales. "It only made sense to create this special epicurean cruise to showcase our culinary strengths in one of the most popular and revered food and wine regions in the world."
Two celebrity guest chefs from the region will accompany the cruise, providing cooking demonstrations and menus for guests on board:
The "Best of the Riviera Food & Wine Cruise" will be packed with culinary events such as expanded "Shopping with the Chef" trips in local markets in Marseille, France; Livorno and Messina, Italy; festive epicurean deck events and gala luncheons; and local specialties and regional flavors featured on menus throughout the voyage. Seabourn Sojourn's onboard culinary staff will also be augmented by the company's award-winning team of corporate executive chefs and wine experts.
Seabourn has also created optional custom food and wine excursions at each of the Mediterranean ports of call: Marseille, St. Tropez and Ajaccio on Corsica in France; Santa Margherita Ligure, Messina (Taormina) and Sorrento in Italy and Valletta, Malta, plus an overnight stay at Livorno and two full days to explore Florence, Pisa, Lucca and the culinary delights of Tuscany.
