Some travelers have heard horror stories about cruise food and for some this is the determining factor in whether or not to cruise. Fortunately, not all cruise food is as bad as it sound. In fact, in most cases, not only are there not health issues with the food, cruise food can be spectacular. Case in point, the food on some cruises has gotten so refined and unique, even featuring Michelin star chefs that they now cater to foodies around the world. If you love food and love to cruise, Coconut Club Vacations invites you to check out these three cruises and what makes their food unique.
Considered one of the worlds’ leading small cruise lines, Seabourn provides a unique cruising experience including low passenger to staff ratio, spacious accommodations, fewer than 300 suites and amazing food options. The Odyssey was the first in its class which accommodates only 450 passengers. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in options including the infamous Restaurant 2. While space is limited at this establishment, it is worth the wait as its creative small plate dishes offer cruisers a taste of some of the finest foods available including salmon, tuna and foie gras.
