According to a press release, Virgin Voyages has launched its first-ever Eat & Drink Month in collaboration with acclaimed chefs and mixologists, which will take place in November.
The cruise line is collaborating with Michelin-starred chefs Matt Lambert and Brad Farmerie, James Beard Award nominees Silvana Salcido Esparza and Sohui Kim, and beverage designer Charles Joly to bring the project to life. Four- and five-night voyages on the Scarlet Lady, as well as six- and eight-night voyages on the Valiant Lady, are part of the Eat & Drink Month. as stated by Virgin Voyages
“Instead of mass-produced banquet food in large dining halls, we have made-to-order culinary experiences in intimate eateries.” “Our food and beverage menus were created by award-winning chefs and mixologists who brought their land-based gastronomy experience to our restaurants and cocktail bars on board,” said Nirmal Saverimuttu, president and chief experience officer, Virgin Voyages.
Throughout November, guests will be treated to specialty cocktails and menu items, as well as bookable events priced between $15 and 125 per guest, such as elevated dinner and wine pairings, cooking demos, and a preview of the new menu that will debut next year.
Every November booking includes a complimentary $300 Bar Tab that can be used for specialty cocktails or the brand’s unique Shake for Champagne feature, which allows guests to order their drink of choice via their phone.
“Of all the feedback we’ve received from previous guests on TripAdvisor and Cruise Critic, two things stand out above all else: our incredible Crew and the food and drinks.” “Eat & Drink Month allows us to turn up the heat and celebrate Sailors’ favorite part of coming aboard with a recurring event that our guests will look forward to for years to come,” Saverimuttu added.
Once onboard, guests can book a variety of Eat & Drink events and special appearances.
Culinary entertainment onboard includes Let’s Mushroom Around, Sushi & Poke Demo, Flavors Uncorked at The Wake, Razzle Dazzle Menu Sneak Peek, Creative Collective: Sohui Kim, Creative Collective: Brad Farmerie, and Creative Collective: Silvana Salcido Esparza.
Spill the Beans with Intelligentsia Coffee, Filthy Bloody Mary Bar, What’s The Tea?, Lotera Gigante, Seven Sea Sippers, Sip and Sway with Kin Euphorics, Nothing Fancy at The Loose Cannon are among the events available to guests.
