Crystal to offer culinary shore excursions in Europe
Crystal Cruises are to offer more than sixty shore excursions in Europe this year that focus on the culinary regions in which the ships are sailing.
Shore excursions are set to include cooking classes, multi-course meals, culinary history lessons and food sourcing. Passengers will also be invited to sample the local cuisine in traditional homes, farms, markets and restaurants.
As an example, guests sailing to Sicily aboard Crystal Serenity or Crystal Symphony will be able to study Sicilian cuisine such as arancine di riso (rice and tomato croquettes); whilst in Corfu they will be able to see how bread is baked in a traditional garden wood-fire stove.
