Crystal's Culinary Excursions Take Centerstage This Summer

March 2, 2009 By: David Eisen


Crystal Cruises has food on the mind. The luxury line will feature a host of culinary-centric activities on its 2009 summer/fall Baltic, Mediterranean and Northern Europe cruises. These include cooking lessons of regional specialties in Portugal and Monte Carlo, private wine tastings in Italy and tapas tasting in Spain.

Brand new Crystal Adventures include a chateau dinner with a family active for centuries in the Bordeaux wine trade, wine tasting with a four-course lunch at a Sorrento farmhouse and a cooking lesson and lunch at Lisbon's Albatroz Palace boutique hotel.

Bespoke Crystal Adventures also include a lunch at France's Chateau Mouton Rothschild; an excursion to Medoc Chateau and lunch at Relais Ch√Ęteau Saint-James' chef's table; a visit to an Andalusian olive mill for a paella-making lesson; an outing to Ston, Croatia, to sample wine and its famous oysters and a Norwegian crabbing expedition whereby guests can sample their catches.

These are in addition to the fine food served aboard Crystal's two ships including specialty restaurants featuring the signature dishes of Nobu Matsuhisa and Piero Selvaggio. 

Right now, Crystal's Europe Celebration Fares offer up to $1,500 per person savings on most cruises. Cruise fares for the voyages start at $3,535 per person.
