Silversea Cruises is offering culinary- and wine-themed programs on its 2015 and 2016 sailings.

The Culinary Voyages include specialized workshops such as basic knife skills and kitchen terminology, as well as  sauces and baking; cooking demonstrations with wine pairing and interactive Q&A sessions; lively cooking competitions between chef David Blisland and the ship’s own culinary team; a Lunch and Learn event; take-home recipes, and if the itinerary permits, a Market to Plate experience where passengers are taken to a local market to shop for fresh ingredients to cook on board or at a Relais & Chateaux property.

Aboard the Wine Cruises, guests enjoy a sampling of vintage wines while learning about the tradition and art of winemaking during complimentary tastings and lectures conducted by Silversea wine ambassador, Lawrence d’Almeida, a wine production expert and former winemaker. Guests may also have the opportunity to explore some of the world’s wine regions on optional guided shore excursions, depending on the itinerary. Also, aboard all Silversea sailings, guests enjoy complimentary selections of red and white wine pairings with lunch and dinner.

Select voyages will offer both culinary and wine programs including two on the Silver Spirit’s 15-day transatlantic voyage from Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale, departing Nov. 9, 2015; and the 21-day, Brazil-focused itinerary from Barbados to Buenos Aires departing Jan. 25, 2016. For more information, visit
