What’s your travel style? When you’re thinking about booking a cruise with Global Connections Travel, do you look for top chefs? Music? Golf?

There may just be a cruise for every type of traveler, and below we outline some of our favorites.


Cook with a Top Chef

Jacques Pépin is hosting classes on an Oceania Cruises trip from Venice to Lisbon in November, and Windstar Cruises is bringing James Beard Award winners (like Seattle’s Maria Hines) on ship for demos. If you’re more into eating a celebrity chef’s food than cooking it, The Grill by Thomas Keller opened this May aboard the Seabourn Quest, which sails all over the world.

Celebrity has partnered with Bravo TV show Top Chef to offer a “Top Chef at Sea” cruise where select guests are thrown into the spotlight to show off their cooking expertise. During “Top Chef Night,” in the main restaurant treats guests to dishes conceived by popular “cheftestants” from the show.
