One of the greatest aspects of a glatt kosher Kosherica cruise or riverboat sailing, aside from the incredible five-star cuisine, are the majestic ports-of-call all over the world that we visit. There are so many beautiful sites to see in these ports and we love sharing the experience with all of you.
At many of these amazing sites there are landmarks rich in Jewish history and culture. Kosherica is happy to be able to offer private Jewish interest excursions to may of these sites. In this blog we will go through many of the cruises that Kosherica offers and which ports will feature Jewish interest excursions.
