A Wine Journey to Remember

Wine tasting on one of Maine’s many secluded islands. Now that’s something worth raising a glass for!

We love a good wine, which is why we serve a red and white with dinner each evening on all of our cruises. But if you’re looking for that extra something, join one of our specialty cruises where passion for wine stands front and center.

Each meal was a new dining experience and the food was beyond incredible.
