The Disney Parks Blog has released information about new culinary experiences on the Disney Cruise Line. These new Culinary Port Adventures will take guests on excursions at different ports around the world and they will “celebrate the stories, cultures and flavors of the places you’ll visit.” The adventures have been inspired by ABC’s hit food show The Chew. Culinary Port Adventures will involve a wide range of different activities depending on the location.
Master the secrets to creating exotic specialities from around the world during hands-on seminars and programs led by top chefs ashore. From a cooking lesson in Tuscany to a culinary bootcamp on Prince Edward Island and time at the Klipfish Academy in Norway, you’ll learn to prepare local favorites from an expert chef. The best part? Getting to enjoy your creation!
Guests will take part in cooking classes with local chefs making local dishes such as a traditional Italian lunch in Tuscany, klipfish in Norway and Canadian lobster in Charlottetown. Afterwards, you get to eat the food that you prepared.
Eat, drink and enjoy a little something extra during select Port Adventures where savoring a delicious meal is only half the fun. In Alaska, feast on fresh seafood you’ve just caught on a fishing expedition off the coast of the scenic Tongass National Forest. On your adventures in Italy, compete in a cooking challenge at a local farm after exploring the ruins of Pompeii and the beauty of the Sorrento Coast.
On the Culinary Port Adventures, exploring food and drink is combined with exploring the cultural side of the destination. Stroll through the Tongass National Forest and catch fresh fish in Alaska or take a guided tour of Pompeii before competing in a cooking competition at a local farm.
Wine & Dessert
Work alongside kitchen pros during appetizing port excursions that teach everything from wine appreciation to dessert creation. After touring an 18th-century wine cellar in the Bahamas, you’ll indulge in a 4-course meal with expertly paired wines. During an excursion to discover the legend of Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster, you’ll decorate a cake to artistically express your unique take on the elusive creature.
Expert chefs will teach guests more about desserts and wines while on their tour. In Cozumel, Mexico, learn about the pairing of Mexican wines with chocolate, experience a 4 course meal with expert selected wines in Graycliff Hotel, Nassau and sample traditional meat dumplings with Russian vodka in St. Petersburg.
Disney Cruise Line Culinary Port Adventures will be available at many ports of call throughout Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, Canada, the Bahamas and Alaska. Prices and more details on each excursion are available here.
