If you’re anything like me (Sarah), then you LOVE chocolate. It feeds my soul. 🙂 So when I heard about this chocolate cruise…you know it got my attention! It’s an 8-day mediterranean cruise dedicated entirely to CHOCOLATE! It’s called The Eurochocolate Cruise and it’s thanks to the collaboration of Italian line Costa Cruises and the Eurochocolate Festival.
Here are the highlights:
- Sets sail April 16, 2020 in Civitavecchia, Italy and docks along the route in Genoa, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Malta and Catania.
- Master Classes led by famed chocolate artisans Guido Gobino, Enric Rovira and Pierpaolo Ruta
- Special tasting sessions, some of which pair an assortment of chocolate confections paired with wines and Mediterranean dishes
- An overall chocolate-infused onboard dining experience, consisting of tailor-made food and cocktail offerings, and featuring original menus like “Tutto Cacao” or “Choco Aperitivo”
- Exclusive and engaging show-cooking sessions with the famous food blogger Sonia Peronaci of Giallo Zafferano.
- Daily, chocolate-centric excursions at each new port, including a visit to the Chocolate Museum of Barcelona
- Presentations by chocolate experts that reveal all the secrets of “The Food of the Gods”

Have you ever been on a cruise?
Are you a Gilmore Girls fan? I (Jeni) totally love that show and have rewatched the series multiple times. LOVE me some Gilmore Girls! So, the Warner Bros. backlot in Burbank, California turns into Stars Hollow between December 21 – January 5th. And they will have a tour planned, too – a trip to Lorelai’s house, Stars Hollow High, Luke’s Diner, and the gazebo. How cool is that?
So… if you’re a fan, AND will be in California during that time… there you go! For the rest of us, we’ll just be sitting here dreaming about it 🙂
