The cruise lasts for eight days and it will take you all around Europe, with the ship docking in places like Genoa, Italy; Barcelona, ​​Spain; Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Catania, Italy; and Malta.

To be able to participate in the chocolate-themed events, guests must purchase a special package for 120 euros, or about $US132, in addition to booking a basic or all-inclusive cabin.

As a bonus, everyone who participates in the Eurochocolate package gets a welcome kit that’s filled with sweet treats and chocolate-themed gadgets.

While onboard the ship, guests can do things like learn how to make pastries or watch professionals create art out of chocolate

The cruise’s itinerary features workshops where you can make pastries, chocolate and wine tastings, chocolate-themed cocktails, meals prepared by renowned chefs, and even trips to chocolate-themed excursions.

Some highlights include a special stop at the world-famous Museu de la Xocolata, a chocolate museum in Barcelona, and events featuring some of the most important national and international chocolate makers in the world.

Amidst all of the stops and shows, guests can watch a sculptor from Eurochocolate as they work on turning a whole block of chocolate into an original work of art over the course of the eight-day trip.
