The Riverboat Luncheon Cruise will offer its guests the opportunity to see the beauty of Savannah from the river. This is an event that everyone aboard the ship is guaranteed to enjoy and remember. Hosted by Virginia Willis, celebrity guest chef and cookbook author, the Luncheon Cruise will feature an interactive cooking demonstration on board as the riverboat cruises down the Savannah River. Virginia will be creating her "Mexican Chocolate Pudding with Bourbon Cream".


The “Secrets of the Southern Table” Riverboat Luncheon Cruise is aptly named after Willis’ new cookbook making its debut this fall. All guests on-board receive a complimentary copy of her new cookbook. After the demonstration, Willis will be available for a meet & greet and book signing.


A gourmet lunch buffet will be available featuring one of Willis’ most popular recipes. The gourmet buffet will also include traditional Southern favorites and a souvenir cup with unlimited tastings of wines, beers, and spirits from a variety of tasting stations located on several decks of the ship.
