I haven't seen cooking classes, but lots of cruises have demos.

Princess has a really entertaining show-type demo, and Carnival had a great demo that gave out recipes so you could learn as you watched, and we got to sample the food. It was absolutely delicious!

We posted pictures here if you want to see them:http://www.cruisefoods.com/index.php...&cat1=3&cat2=1

Hope that helps!

Default Celebrity cooking class in Murano

Celebrity, on some of the sailings, offers an amazing cooking class in Murano on the Solstice class ships. My husband took it, for a fee, I think only $40 - which is very very low for what he got! It was a 2 hour lunch - he and the other participants helped the chefs cook the various components in the Murano kitchen, learning as they went along. Then the fruits of their labor were served, beautifully, with wine pairings included. He not only learned lots, but he made new friends, and had an amazing meal. It was one of the best experiences ever for him, on board, he said - he will do it again if the opportunity presents.

Default Cooking classes

Are these classes to teach the cooks on board how to cook?Carnival needs to do these as there wasn't much that you could say was good [nothing great] on our cruise on the Valor in august.

Probably the best cooking classes at sea would be the Regent Le Cordon Bleu experience with hands on instruction. Not offered on every cruise, they are three day intensive classes.
