Best Cruises for Food Lovers
High-end beers, vegetarian menus, seafood-centric restaurants and locavore cuisine: A guide to the best eating and drinking on ocean and river cruises.—Gina Hamadey and M. Elizabeth Sheldon.
AmaWaterways' river cruises—which are limited to a relatively intimate 164 passengers—make daily stops in remote towns like Cai Be, Vietnam, where guests can explore the floating market and learn how to make traditional Vietnamese candies and rice paper. The small ship size allows the company to offer a number of wine-themed cruises through the Danube, Mosel, Douro and Rhine river valleys, featuring tours of local wineries guided by experts like Barry Wiss of Napa's Trinchero Estates. amawaterways.com
