We’re selective about the cruise lines with whom we partner our wine and culinary hosts. We choose to work with ultra luxury cruise lines including Silversea, Crystal, Paul Gauguin, Seabourn, SeaDream Yacht Club and AMA Waterways. We choose ultra luxury cruise lines because they offer the experience and quality our guests desire. Many are all-inclusive, including amenities such as gratuities, beverages and excursions. Cruise vacations should be about relaxing and feeling pampered. You should return from your vacation feeling as though you have truly experienced a “Taste of Life” and escaped from the ordinary. Spacious staterooms and suites, high-quality meals and entertainment, and interesting destinations are all a part of the experience with the cruise lines we choose to work with.
