What's not included:
Kosher Travelers is committed to providing all its meals of the highest quality and under strict kosher supervision. We choose a cruise ship based on their willingness and ability to accommodate our kashrut needs and have a cook/mashgiach travel with us to supervise kashrut and prepare our meals. All meals are prepared fresh on board the cruise ship by gourmet chefs.
The common denominator of our clients is Shomer Shabbat and kashrut. There are no religious level criteria to join our tours, and we won't ask you any questions about your religious observance. We attract a diverse group of Jewish, English-speaking guests from across the globe, and encourage an accepting atmosphere among group members.
