Culinary Experiences

Innovative gastronomic creations that delight the palate are the bare minimum of what can be expected for all onboard dining experiences. Our master chefs display extraordinary skill, preparing global cuisine with the freshest local ingredients, unmatched passion, creativity, and enthusiasm. This is what distinguishes and defines the experience of dining aboard The World.

When in port, members of the Food & Beverage team don ‘explorer’ hats and go in search of local markets for fresh and indigenous ingredients. Whether featuring Alaskan king crab, French cheeses and truffles, Peruvian trout or Caribbean spiny lobster, The World’s chefs bring the destination to life in the meals they create to further enhance the Journey. Residents sometimes accompany the chefs to local markets to further immerse themselves in the culture and enrich their culinary knowledge.

Ashore, the Food & Beverage Team arranges for culinary experiences that can’t be found elsewhere, like an exquisite Kobe beef dinner in Japan or a private, 35-course meal in Farran Adria’s El Bulli before it closed its gates.

For the 142 families who call The World home, the quality and diversity of its foods and beverages, as well as the high-level of service presented is of supreme importance.

Award-Winning Wine Program

With an extensive wine list of over 1,100 selections hand-picked from 19 countries and a wine cellar holding over 14,000 bottles, The World of Fine Wine has listed The World as Best Ship two years in a row with their coveted three-star status.

But the wines themselves are only the beginning. The World’s Beverage Manager and Head Sommelier welcome select winemakers aboard the Ship, where they discuss topics like wine production and pairing with the Residents. Because they are so familiar with the preferences of the Residents, they know exactly what to look for when making purchases in new destinations. When the Ship is anchored, the team often arranges exclusive visits and dinners at the most unique vineyards, some of which have not opened their doors to visitors in years. Even for the most knowledgeable oenophiles, these represent the absolute pinnacle of wine experiences.
