Eastern Mediterranean Gourmet Cruise with Lyndey Milan

Mediterranean Cruise 1

It’s a small and very personal group on a much larger ship but we have fantastic land content too. I am so excited to have some personal recommendations for secret places to dine in Venice, Taormina, Florence and the Amalfi Coast. We’ll also be visiting Tuscany and Dubrovnik. I also give cooking demonstrations on board on sea days. I was incredibly impressed with Celebrity last year and would heartily recommend them for their professionalism, maintenance of the ship and care of guests. You can read my blogs from my last cruise click here.

Last year, I hosted 30 Australians from around Australia. It was a great mix of couples, singles and friends. They all enjoyed it so much that 20 made it to a reunion we hosted in our Sydney Studio Kitchen!

Ex-Australia, it is 19 days including flights, 11 days/10 nights on the luxurious ship, Celebrity Constellation. It includes two nights’ accommodation in Venice and 4 nights’ accommodation in the Italian Lakes in four-star hotels. There are lots of inclusions like a Welcome dinner in Venice, sightseeing tours in Venice, Taormina, Rome, the Amalfi Coast, Tuscany and Dubrovnik. I lead the tour and there is also a professional tour manager. All meals on board Celebrity Constellation and private on-board activities are included.
