Explore on shore with two tasty chocolate treats
The Black Gold and Diamond Chocolate shore experience
The Caribbean is famed for its glorious sunshine, lush landscapes and tropical climate – the perfect combination for a relaxing holiday and for growing some of the world’s finest spices and cocoa beans.
In Grenada, chocolate lovers will be treated to an unforgettable experience on the Black Gold and Diamond Chocolate shore experience, learning more about the island’s fascinating trade in spices and cocoa beans. Known as the Spice Island, Grenada is famous for its production of nutmeg (nicknamed Grenadian black gold) and produces 40 per cent of the world’s supply.
Encounter a world of Nutmeg and Chocolate
Experience the chocolate making process
‘I’m a chocaholic so you can imagine how excited I was to see how chocolate is actually made. It was fascinating to see the whole process from the raw cocoa pods on the tree, drying of the beans, and finally tasting the purest form of bitter-sweet chocolate. It was amazing!’ - Grenada Marian, Shore Experience Manager Arcadia
The Belgian Chocolate Making and Free Time shore experience
For a chocolate odyssey closer to home, historic Bruges is the sweetest of destinations. The medieval jewel boasts magnificent architecture and charming canals but there’s a darker, more decadent side of the city to explore.
Chocolate for the masses
Create your very own delicious Pralines
‘Belgium is synonymous with chocolate so where better to learn from the master chocolatiers? You don’t just listen and learn from others on this experience, you actually get to roll up your sleeves and get creative with the tastiest chocolate. It’s the best of both worlds to enjoy beautiful Bruges and also master a new craft.’ - Abby Crossley, Shore Experiences Product Manager
