Sample the food as you go
If you enjoy food and exploring the different types of cuisines as you travel, then why not try eating ashore some days while on your cruise. Sampling freshly produced local food can give you a real insight to the culture of an area, as well as enabling you to interact with local people. In fact food tourism is a growing sector. A cruise can offer you the perfect way to sample a range of different cultures and cuisines within one vacation.
This is especially true of a Mediterranean cruise as you will visit a range of different countries with their unique cultures and cuisines. On a ten-day cruise you could manage to sample authentic local food from eight different countries. Not many other holiday types can offer that! One day you could be eating Moussaka in Greece, and the next day trying a meze in Turkey. Sampling the food of a country is the best way to get to the heart of their culture.
Here is a look at some of the Mediterranean’s delicious cuisines that you could sample while on your cruise.

An authentic experience
By making the effort to get out and try the local cuisines of the countries that you visit you will gain a more authentic experience of their individual cultures and the fascinating people within them. You may also find that you return home with a greater appreciation of what can be done with food and might want to try recreating the dishes! I know I do!
