To bring the "Beauty an the Beast" theme to life, the travelers will visit Riquewihr, the French village that is as picturesque as Belle’s hometown from the movie and and get immersed into the culture of the film, as well as have a "Beauty and the Beast "themed dinner (we wonder if "The Grey stuff" is really delicious).

These adult-exclusive sailings will be hosted by chefs and sommeliers and focus on culinary walking tours, a French patisserie class, local beer and wine pairings and craft cocktail blending seminars.
