We love cruises for the experience of travelling on the high seas, visiting multiple exotic ports in a single vacation, and the convenience of the many on-board amenities. There are always plenty of great food options to indulge in too! Modern cruise lines go to great lengths to provide guests with a variety of dining experiences. From casual to fine dining, international cuisines, buffets, cafes, in-cabin or alfresco, there is something for every taste.
For some travellers, however, food isn't just fuel for the adventure, it is an essential part of the experience. More of us are looking for quality and authenticity in the meals we enjoy while exploring the world, and for a growing segment of travellers, sampling new flavours and trying different cuisines is at the very heart of their exploration.
If you are one of these culinary adventurers, here are four cruise lines offering gourmet travel experiences. To speak to a CAA travel consultant and book your next great vacation, call 1-855-660-2292 or visit your local CAA Store.
