This summer, the CTMA Vacancier brings you to the heart of the Islands’ gourmet culture. As soon as you climb aboard, the staff’s delicious accent and welcoming nature will put you at ease. And with three themed cruises exploring the pleasure of food, CTMA Cruises invites you to taste the Islands before you even see them, and feast your eyes on the magnificent scenery. And what’s more, these themed cruises are offered at the same price as the classic cruises!

Choose one of the three gastronomy-themed cruises

The Gourmet Islands cruise seeks to immerse you in the gourmet culture of the famous archipelago. This cruise takes place right in the middle of fishing season, and you’ll find treasures of the sea and the land in your plate, not least of which will be the renowned Magdalen Islands’ lobster. You will also learn to prepare it at culinary workshops hosted by a local chef. Stories and anecdotes told by an expert madelinot fisher round out the activities.

With the Wine and Fine Cuisine package, enjoy the privilege of tasting fine dining prepared by Celebrity Chef Anne Desjardins. A sommelier will also be present to pair these succulent dishes with the perfect wine. Your taste buds will continue to get the royal treatment on the Islands, where the cuisine is simply among the best. A stop in the Québec region along the way will allow you to tour a vineyard on Île d’Orléans.

Let the Gourmet Dining package sweep you off your feet for a mouth-watering cruise. The menu features fine dining creations by Chefs Johanne Vigneau and Helena Loureiro inspired by their homelands, the Magdalen Islands and Portugal, and there will be culinary demonstrations. Conferences will also take place and you will discover the products of the sea with Chef Jean-Paul Grappe.
