Submitted by on October 4, 2017 – 8:50 amNo Comment

Norwegian Cruise Line“Meet The Winemaker Cruises” are a selection of cruises aboard Norwegian Escape and Norwegian Dawn during which guests will have the opportunity to “wine and dine” with leaders and legends of the winemaking industry.

Guests aboard these select sailings will have several opportunities to engage with the wine makers and experts through seminars and activities. On the second day of each cruise, there’s an open-forum question and answer session held in the Atrium of the ship.

Following the open forum, guests will have the chance to purchase featured wines selected by the wine makers and varietals from the ship’s wine list, meet the expert and have him sign the bottle to take home as a memento. The open forum and personal meet and greet are complimentary and open to all guests.

There also will be wine tastings and wine dinners on board.
