MSC Cruises has joined forces with Gerry Wilton, international chocolatier and founder of the world’s first chocolate-themed hotel, the chic and unique Chocolate Boutique Hotel in Bournemouth, United Kingdom, to offer a voyage of discovery with a difference for guests on board MSC Opera from May 13-23, 2012.

Combining visits to Northern Europe’s most fascinating Baltic capitals with a veritable “choc fest,” guests will witness the transformation of MSC Opera into a chocolate factory as she departs from Southampton for an 11-day cruise, visiting Amsterdam, Tallinn, St. Petersburg and Copenhagen before returning to Southampton.

During the four full days at sea, Wilton will host a series of four mouth-watering, two-hour-long chocolate classes, starting at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day. These are not your typical theory classes in which the teacher holds court, but rather “hands-on” tutorials where the emphasis is on interactive fun.

Guests will learn all about the history of chocolate and the production process from bean to bar while enjoying every chocolate-filled minute. They will taste samples from all over the world, learn how to make both molded chocolates and Belgian truffles and even paint portraits of themselves – using delicious white, dark and milk Belgian chocolate - which will then be framed for them to take away.

The 4-session series can be booked onboard at a cost of €34 per person.
