Taste of Travel with Celebrity Cruises

Savour award-winning dishes and perfectly paired wines with Celebrity Cruises’ Taste of Travel

Be taken on a gastronomic journey around the world as you sample a range of culinary delights created by Michelin-starred Vice President of Culinary, Cornelius Gallagher and his team.

Celebrity Cruises returns for a fifth year bringing flavours from around the world through its Taste of Travel experience. Foodies will be welcomed into a contemporary space, reminiscent of a Celebrity Cruises’ ship and invited to experience the flavours of Japan, Tuscany and Galapagos. Visiting over 300 destinations, Celebrity Cruises’ Taste of Travel aims to give an insight into the culinary experiences both in destination and onboard.

Experience a taste of Japan, Tuscany or the Galapagos

Celebrity Cruises Japanese Master Sushi Chef Yoshikazu Okada, a fourth generation sushi chef, will be on hand to create stunning dishes from Sushi on 5 that were inspired by his heritage. Italian food lovers should join Celebrity Cruises Executive Chef Alexander Capello for his Tuscan inspired menu including burrata and those looking for fish and seafood should join Panamanian Executive Chef Victor Mancilla to experience his local culinary experience in Galapagos.

…and sample Celebrity Cruises extensive wine cellar

As well as being able to sample delights from the award-winning culinary team, Celebrity Cruises has partnered with The Wine Show and resident experts Amelia Singer and Joe Fattorini will be on hand to guide guests through the perfect pairing. In addition Joe and Amelia will be hosting a number of complimentary wine tasting events throughout the festival, where wine enthusiasts can enjoy a taster of Celebrity Cruises extensive cellar which boasts the largest and rarest wine collection at sea.
