Seattle, WA—Coffee Fest, American Barista & Coffee School (ABC) and Fresh Cup Magazine are proud to present “Coffee Cruise II”. The seven-day coffee cruise, which will depart from New Orleans aboard the Norwegian Sun, one of Norwegian Cruise Line’s top luxury liners, offers a rich itinerary, including educational sessions, networking opportunities and stops in coffee-growing countries in Central America.
“Coffee Cruise II” will kick-off with a pre-cruise party in New Orleans (exact location to be determined) on March 10, the evening before departure. Once on the ship, participants will be able to choose from a variety of educational sessions including cuppings, retailer roundtables and more to fill their “at sea” days. There will also be a breakfast bar and coffee tasting area, where cruisers can meet up and taste different coffees each morning. Following is the cruise itinerary:
