The Hands-on-workshops are not on the daily schedule. Last June I went to the guest services to find which port days and times they were being held. They offered 2 classes on a 14 day cruise. I got into both the workshops and one was just me and the ATK chef which was great fun. Yes 5 Star Mariners get this as a perk but they must reply to their invitation and if they do not it is open to any one that wishes to pay for the class. You get the recipes and an apron that you wore during your class. They had about 6 different classes that the ATK chef will choose to present. They were egg, pasta, cake decorating, pies and a couple I can't think of currently. When you finish with the hour long class, you get to sample the recipes that were made in and they serve coffee and tea. On the ships I have taken the classes we were in the Culinary Center that doubles as an the B B King area. We were not allowed to eat what we made but the recipe was prepared in the ships kitchen using the recipes due to health regulations.
