Radisson Out To Seduce Palates ...

RSSC & LE CORDON BLEU: From romantic Tuscan dining to a burst of exotic Asian flavors and expanded Le Cordon Bleu feasts, food connoisseurs have a lot to look forward to as menus at Latitudes, Portofino, and La Veranda on Radisson Seven Seas Cruises' Seven Seas Voyager, Seven Seas Mariner, Seven Seas Navigator, and Paul Gauguin have been further refined and diversified to seduce even the most demanding culinary aficionados. The first cruise line to introduce permanent Le Cordon Bleu restaurants-at-sea is expanding its relationship with the venerable Parisian cooking school with a new menu at La Veranda on the elegant 320-guest Paul Gauguin, which sails the stunning islands of Tahiti and French Polynesia year-round. Le Cordon Bleu chefs are bringing their high kitchen arts to the South Seas with a menu that not only explores the culinary byways of France, but also offers an extraordinary dining experience capturing the food-loving heart of the country. La Veranda's à la carte menu is artfully assembled for a gastronomic journey from Provence to Normandy and from Alsace to the Loire Valley. Le Cordon Bleu also has created lighter sauces and vegetarian options. RSSC sailes to more than 300 ports on six continents, including Antarctica, and there's never a charge for alternative restaurants fleetwide. To book, call 800-447-7500.
