Sailing the seas gets even better when the Relais & Chateaux L'Ecole des Chefs cooking school is onboard. Attend this program for no extra charge and get hands-on instruction with French chef David Bilsland. Curriculum varies, but you will learn basic knife skills, pick up kitchen terminology, learn to bake, make sauces and pair wines. You may even take an escorted tour of a local market followed by a cooking class.
