All-Inclusive Cruise Package| Gourmet Food & Wine Cruise
The Wine, Dine and Music all-inclusive cruise is sailing again this October on the Norwegian Cruise Line, Pearl. “All-inclusive cruise” means that your fare includes accommodations, meals, non-alcoholic beverages (except soda), entertainment on the ship, taxes and port fees. Just about everything you’ll need onboard is included. You don’t have to carry cash around the ship for those little extras. Just present your card key and it gets billed to your room. What could be easier?!
Fodor’s Travel Magazine (www.fodors.com) notes that, “For many travelers, all-inclusive getaways are the only way to go. Everything is figured out in advance of departure -- accommodations, food, drink, entertainment, and most or all fees...On an all-inclusive cruise, much of what you'll need and want is included in the rate you pay for up front. But there are a few things that are hardly ever included such as tips, spa services, and the cost of shore excursions.”
This Wine, Dine and Music Theme Cruise is designed for those who share a love and interest of great food and fine wine. A passenger from last year's wine cruise shared, “It brings the Sonoma wine country to me. No driving, no worrying about which hotel or restaurant to choose, no packing and unpacking. FDT [Flying Dutchmen Travel] paid attention to every detail so I didn’t have to. I got great seats to all the seminars and shows, learned a lot and met interesting people. I had a blast!”
While we sail through the beautiful Caribbean you can choose from a variety of onboard activities: Lounge by one of the pools, enjoy the outdoor concerts, use the rock climbing wall, bowling alley, sports court or casino and much more. Or, just relax in one of the quiet areas of the ship. This wine cruise focuses on the education, appreciation and tasting of fine wines and pairings with gourmet meals. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in wine seminars, nightly shows in the main theater, Chef recipes and lectures, ‘Introduction to Mixology’ seminar and more. For a very reasonable fee you can also enjoy wine tastings, wine club memberships and special cooking demonstrations in the Culinary Center.
“We’ve been in business for many years” says Ann Macker, co-partner of Flying Dutchmen Travel. “Our cruise and travel business is thriving in great part due to repeat customers. Client satisfaction is important to us both personally and professionally. Tracy [Michaels, co-owner] and I love to travel and want to share the joy and passion with as many people as we can.”
It's YOUR turn!
