While most cruise ships keep getting bigger and bigger, there is something uniquely satisfying about Silversea’s luxurious small ship cruises. The luxury cruise ships call at smaller harbours inaccessible to larger ships. And they can dock right in the heart of a city while mega-vessels must anchor off shore.
Silversea offers great Food and Wine Cruises
The Food and wine cruises include an exclusive array of epicurean delights. On board, multiple intimate dining venues serve superb cuisine with a sophisticated level of attentive service and an ever-changing ocean view. In your suite, there’s even an educational video programme prepared by Silversea’s celebrated wine consultant, Lyn Farmer, that describes the wine regions you will visit on your voyage and the flagship varietals they produce.
Culinary Arts Voyages
Culinary Arts Voyages aboard Silversea indulge foodies with a cruise experience to savour. Join world-renowned guest chefs as they share their culinary expertise through special menus, cooking demonstrations and a grand gourmet dinner that spotlights their most innovative specialties.
L’Ecole des Chefs by Relais & Châteaux
On 14 exclusive voyages around the globe, Silversea guests can experience a unique cooking school at sea concept at the first L’Ecole des Chefs by Relais & Châteaux. A broad curriculum of tantalising culinary events has been designed exclusively for Silversea by Relais & Châteaux. Witness culinary vision and creativity up close with an exciting array of cooking classes hosted by Silversea’s Culinary Trainer Chef David Bisland.
• Cooking Demonstrations — Watch the chef at work creating his favourite dishes, which are then paired with the perfect wine by the head sommelier.
• Lunch & Learn — Join a small group of fellow epicureans at this intimate cooking and lunching event. The chef will demonstrate preparation of your appetiser, main course and dessert, serving each course while preparing the next.
• Market to Plate — Embark on a market tour to shop for fresh ingredients that will later be skilfully transformed into masterpieces of regional specialities — either during a cooking class on board or at an actual Relais & Chateaux property. This unique shoreside event and Slow Food experience is offered in select ports only.
• Cooking Competitions — Guests will be entertained and educated by inspiring cooking demonstrations that showcase the very best in culinary finesse.
