Foodies know that the culinary experience of a destination can make or break a holiday and a cruise is no different.

He’s very switched on when it comes to delighting the tastebuds of Aussie travellers.

Lovers of Asian food will adore Silk Harvest which offers authentic Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Vietnamese cuisine with a range of dishes that will keep you coming back time and again.
For a modern food ethic, try the Grand Epernay – the menu features a wide variety of modern cuisine created by James Beard Award-nominated chef Jacques Van Staden.
