Vantage Travel Team May 18, 2017

When intrepid travel blogger Johnny Jet wanted to find out what culinary river cruising was all about, we invited him to sail with us on the ms River Voyager. You can follow his tasting trail by reserving a table … oops, cabin … on any of the following Vantage voyages, each featuring a full menu of culinary experiences.   Rhine Culinary Discovery Prost! Raise a stein to the flavorful brews and hearty food of the valley of the Rhine, all the while making an in-depth exploration of the picturesque heart of Europe.   Normandy & the D-Day Beaches The flavor-bursting cuisine of Normandy is what inspired Julia Child to set out on her adventures in French cooking. Discover regional favorites like an apple tart, calvados brandy, and rich cheeses, as you cruise the winding Seine from just outside Paris to the D-Day landing beaches on the coast.   Switzerland & the Heart of the Rhine & Moselle Take your taste buds on a flavorful journey down the storied Rhine and Moselle rivers, with special themed dinners, regional cooking lessons, vineyard visits, and beer tastings. Wine lovers: Sign up for one of the harvest season departures while there’s still room.   Majestic Rivers of Europe: Castles, Cathedrals & Fairytales The beauty of this itinerary is that you’ll explore the history of one of the most interesting parts of Europe through its food, wine, and beer, as well as through music, stories, architecture, and cities. Truly, this is a journey for all of your senses.   Essential Holland: Tulips in Spring Did someone say Belgian chocolate? Along with the explosion of spring colors, windmills turning in the breeze, and tall houses along canals, come on this voyage for mouth-watering Belgian chocolate, creamy cheeses, a daily specialty cocktail at the ship’s bar, and cooking lessons on tasty regional favorites.
