Regent Seven Seas Cruises will offer a new series of deluxe food tours that will include admission to gourmet restaurants with wait lists of six to nine months.

At least initially, they will be offered only on the new Seven Seas Explorer, which debuts in July and will sail in the Mediterranean. The 22 tours were developed by Regent executive director of culinary enrichment Kathryn Kelly.

The following are a sample of what will be offered:

• In St. Tropez, a tasting at the La Croix winery of three Provence vareitals followed by dinner at La Vague d’Or, a Michelin 3-star restaurant in the heart of St. Tropez.

•  In Barcelona, guided strolls through the Boqueria and Santa Caterina markets, followed by a lunch and kitchen tour from Chef Jordi Cruz at ABaC, a 2-star Michelin restaurant.

•  In Monte Carlo, wine tasting at Cave Bianchi in Nice followed by dinner at La Chèvre d’Or restaurant in the medieval village of Eze.

“We are creating something truly special and sure to be enjoyed by both die-hard foodies and peripheral fans of the culinary arts,” said Kelly.

To be called Gourmet Explorer Tours, the experiences carry a price ranging from $79 to $799 per person, Regent said.
