This News Will Float Your Boat – Norwegian Cruise Line Launches Luxury Wine Cruises
If you’re thinking about splashing out on a luxurious cruise, wine cruises should definitely be top of your wish list.
Norwegian Cruise Line has announced a series of wine cruises to help to find the best flavour for you, with its new “Meet the Wine Maker Cruises”.
Each cruise will feature a big-name winemaker or celebrity ambassador who’ll walk passengers through the basics, while also bringing along special vintages.
The second night of each trip will have open-forum Q&A’s with the vintners, followed by a chance to get specially selected bottles of wine autographed.
One of the main highlights will likely be the intimate dinners, where small groups can dine with the winemakers over a 5-course meal.
As of right now, there are five trips on the cards and available for booking, with the first setting sail on September 22nd, with Norwegian Dawn travelling from Boston to Bermuda.
Michael Modavi, one of the biggest names behind California’s Napa Valley vineyards, will join passengers. The other cruises are all round trip escapes from Miami through the Caribbean.
