Tampa city break and Caribbean cruise combination for fans of fine foods

For a wintersun holiday with a difference - where fine food is the order of the day -  US specialist, Bon Voyage, reckons its two-centre Epicurean Delight  break, combining three nights in Tampa with a seven-night Caribbean cruise, should fit the bill.

This 10-night holiday begins in Tampa staying at The Epicurean, the city’s newest boutique hotel where food and drink take centre stage.  Here guests can taste dishes that have been obsessed over, enjoy wines perfected over the years and indulge in inspiring cocktails. The hotel also has a state-of-the-art culinary classroom, with lectures and demonstrations on the fine art of cookery.

A Tampa foodie ‘must’ is dinner at Bern’s Steakhouse, located directly across the street from the Epicurean.  This is one of Tampa’s finest restaurants and home to one of the largest wine collections in the world with 6,800 unique labels and half a million bottles.  Bookings need to be made weeks in advance, which Bon Voyage is happy to arrange.

Fine food continues once on board NCL’s Norwegian Sun as it sails the Western Caribbean for seven nights and visits Roatan, Honduras, Belize City, Costa Maya and Mexico. 

On board, visitors will find 16 global dining choices, ranging from traditional fine dining to endless buffets with custom-order action stations.  For an additional cover charge, guests have access to a world of possibilities including gourmet French, Japanese Teppanyaki and an upmarket steakhouse.

Twin share prices for this holiday, which is available between October 2014 and early April 2015, start from £1495 per person inclusive of return BA flights from Gatwick to Tampa, three nights’ room-only accommodation and selected cookery classes at The Epicurean Hotel and seven nights’ full-board accommodation in a balcony cabin on board the Norwegian Sun.
