Experience local gastronomical traditions as you interact with a food expert during this hands-on cooking class.

Your instructor is Isabella Bariani, an Italian chef who has been teaching cooking classes for several years. The dishes you prepare will be based on traditional recipes that you can make at home, and each menu consists of four courses that change according to the season, although all are seafood based. Ingredients for the dishes will be the freshest available, as the chef will have gone to the fish market to purchase them that very morning.

The kitchen you will cook in is designed for classes, with an electric oven, professional machinery, copper and steel saucepans, and many tools for you, the students.

After preparing your meal, you'll sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labor in the impressive dining room, complete with 15-foot tall ceilings and antique furniture. Here, you'll dine in the style of a true Venetian!

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
