S.A.L.T. – Taste the world

Curated with Adam Sachs, former Editor in Chief of Saveur magazine, our unique S.A.L.T. (Sea And Land Taste) programme will weave an ongoing culinary narrative and course of exploration throughout this cruise along the theme of The Essential Tastes of the World. More than just a delectable concept, S.A.L.T. seeks to truly understand and more deeply appreciate each destination by savouring the heart of its culture – which can best be seen through the lens of its authentic local food culture – seasoned with the time of year we shall be visiting and balancing traditional with modern delicacies.

Bespoke events

Created exclusively for this Controtempo World Cruise 2025, each of these unique events will only happen once but will be remembered for a lifetime. Starting with a magnificent gala dinner, they will immerse you in a voyage of genuine discovery to uncover the true spirit of the Cham Empire, a sky high Singaporean extravaganza, a romantic Bollywood experience, a private tour of an Egyptian presidential palace, a grand evening at Versailles in true Marie Antoinette style, a bespoke photography exhibition based around your unique sailing and a movingly iconic musical farewell.
