Atlas Ocean Voyages Launches New Epicurean Expeditions

Atlas Ocean Ships

Atlas Ocean Voyages has revamped its product offerings to now feature Epicurean Expeditions, according to a press release.

In addition to visiting remote destinations the line will offer new Epicurean Expeditions to iconic, marquee ports in Europe, beginning in April 2023.

“We specialize in expeditions that provide insights, indulge the senses, and inspire discussion among like-minded travelers,” said James Rodriguez, the line’s president and CEO. “With the addition of our new Epicurean Expeditions, discerning explorers can now truly immerse themselves in the culinary culture of European ports, while cruising aboard a luxury yacht.”

Onboard enrichment during Epicurean Expeditions will feature a Visiting Vintner, who may conduct a lecture and tasting to explain the subtleties of regional wines, from an aged Nebbiolo to a Beaujolais nouveau. A Gastronomic Guest – aboard every expedition – might be a renowned chef with a long history of cooking at Michelin-starred venues or a local culinary rock star skilled in the preparation of authentic, regional delicacies, the company said.

In addition to demonstrations or interactive cooking classes, the Gastronomic Guest will participate, along with the ship’s executive or sous chef, in the Yachtsman Cookoff – the Atlas version of a culinary “ironman” competition.

They will also accompany all culinary-focused Cultural Immersion shore excursions, which are complimentary on every Epicurean Expedition, the company said.

Depending on the itinerary, guests might sample tapas in Barcelona; explore a farmer’s market in Corsica; or shop for chocolates and wine in Cinque Terra to enjoy back onboard.
