Chefs table package on the Inspiration

Have any advice about the Chefs table package? Is it fun? Do you get a drink included? How long does it last?

The chef's table is an adventure in itself. More food than I could possibly ever eat. If you are of the "clean your plate" generation you may wish to pace yourself. The wine glasses are never empty and the drink is included. When I switched to tea (I can only drink a limited amount of alcohol), the wait staff teased me that I could have more wine since I "wasn't driving the boat". It can last up to 4 hours, but you won't be bored. We have purchased this 3 times, so obviously I think it is worth the cost. Enjoy!

We have done it twice it is a lovely experience. The wine is included. Enjoy. Book it early it does fill up fast.

So happy with your comment. Thank you.

I so agree it is well worth it! The only thing is to go with an open mind and pallet, for the food will blow your mind!

We did it on the Regal Princess. Here is what I said about the experience:

"An extraordinary treat for both gastronomes and gourmet novices. Enjoy a behind-the-scenes galley tour with Champagne and hors d'oeuvres, followed by an extravagant multi-course dinner created and hosted by the executive chef." This pitch is not an overstatement, it is truly an eating experience. They even forget to mention the variety of wines served with each course and that you end up in a special section (They drape a huge circular curtain over everybody after seated). in the MDR for the main course and desert. Only ten guests allowed each time, very-very good. My wife loved it. Trouble was I didn't ask the price. Found out when we received the final bill getting off the ship. $230. But it was still great.

I have never book this as my husband has diet restrictions. Everyone enjoys the experience & so will you. Have fun and be prepared to dine leisurely. It is well worth the cost.

Surprisingly, they can and do work around dietary restrictions, at least they did 6 years ago. That cruise was for the 25th anniversary of some dear friends. She has so many restrictions we decided if they couldn't go none of the rest of us would (12 people in all). She talked with the chef and he worked with her and the things she could have he left alone and the other things he found a delightful substitute. You might ask for a future sailing, Glomarrone.
