YUM: foodie cruises
What’s the latest fashion fad in the travel world? Well according to Kent & Sussex travel experts Baldwins Travel Group foodie mania is setting sail, with a strong rise in the number of culinary cruises.
Apparently more and more of us are choosing a getaway that combines a passion for food and creating shared experiences with a relaxing cruise holiday. Travel, top quality dining, drink and sunshine? Er, awesomesauce!
Leah Williams of Oceania Cruises, the world’s leading culinary- and destination-focused cruise line says: ‘Dishes by our world-renowned master chef, Jacques Pépin, are being rolled out across all 6 of the cruise ships in our fleet. As well as bistro lunches there’s big, bold flavours from around the globe Cuba, Mexico, Scandinavia, Italy, Asia, Greece, France, Lebanon, Spain, Morocco, England, Philippines, the Caribbean, and India.’
The trend makes sense. Food brings people together and enjoying local dishes is one of the most enjoyable and effective ways to immerse yourself in the local culture. Our hunger for foodie cruises no doubt reflects a general interest in cooking shows and growing culinary inspiration on Instagram. Not to mention chefs on TV like Rick Stein’s culinary cruising through the canals of France.
