On board, you’ll find that it’s more than good food and wine. Rather, it’s your choice of up to five dining venues with a dedicated team creating dishes inspired by the regional cuisines of France. True gourmands can also prepare their own cuisine at Scenic Culinaire, a series of cooking classes on our France river cruises that are led by expert chefs using fresh and regional produce sourced at local markets.
For those who really want to immerse themselves into the world of fine French cuisine, choose from two new Scenic culinary cruises in France, considered the home of epic gastronomy. On both The Tastes of Southern France cruise and also the Flavors of Bordeaux cruise, you will sample fresh produce, learn the art of French winemaking, visit Michelin-star restaurants and sample local delicacies such as mustards, olives, truffles and chocolate.
