7 Nights - April 28, 2014

Norman Love® blends a master’s appreciation of the sensuous with the art of the chef to create handcrafted chocolates...exquisite, silky, rich chocolates...reserved for those who expect nothing less than perfection. Norman Love Confections® has been satisfying connoisseurs of fine chocolates since 2001, when the chocolatier first introduced the masterpieces he produces at his facility in Fort Myers, Florida.

Some of the most masterful chocolate confections made today are created with centuries-old methods that are European in origin. So what better place to celebrate the fine art of chocolate-making than on a decadent Danube River cruises through the heart of Europe? Our first-ever Chocolate Cruise will set sail in April 2014 aboard the AmaCerto with award-winning guest host Norman Love, the Chef, President and Founder of Norman Love Confections & Artisan Gelato. Chocolate lovers booked on this truly indulgent seven-night cruise from Vilshofen to Budapest will enjoy private chocolate-making demonstrations and tastings, chocolate-themed shore excursions, educational seminars on chocolate, and a chocolate mini-buffet extravaganza.

Framed by rolling hillsides, lush vineyards, and medieval castles, the Danube River has captivated musicians, artists and poets throughout the centuries. Travel to legendary destinations, beginning with a 3-night stay in majestic Prague followed by 7 nights cruising from Vilshofen to Budapest. Explore a 2,000 year-old city, visit Europe’s largest pipe organ, savor Wachau Valley wines, and experience the timeless beauty and fascinating history of Vienna and Budapest.
