Chef Lynn Crawford concurred, “Join my talented and charming friend Tommy Smythe and I as we embark on a once-in-a-lifetime Five Star adventure. Set your senses ablaze with a myriad of flavours, scents and experiences on offer during the cruise, and discover with us why this region is rightly famous for its beauty, cuisine, wines, architecture and magical history.”
