Using fresh ingredients and featuring the wine and cheese cellar, this is the perfect way of a guest immersing themselves in French gastronomy with tastings at the conclusion of each class. Lessons cater exclusively for up to 10 guests to ensure an intimate experience. Plenty of sessions are scheduled throughout the cruise, however with exclusive numbers, participants are encouraged to register their interest early while on board.
