Ship ahoy, chocoholics! Now you can book a chocolate-themed cruise around Europe!

The first-of-its-kind, eight-day Mediterranean cruise kicks off in Civitavecchia, Italy, on 16 April next year.

It'll take in Genoa, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Malta and Catania in Sicily.

However, alongside all the usual sightseeing that cruising brings, you will also be able to enjoy chocolate workshops, tastings and masterclasses.

Once on board the Willy Wonka-esque ship, cruisers will be presented with a goody bag full of chocolate, plus there will also be a hand-crafted chocolate sculpture on board the ship.

It will allow us to have, for the first time aboard a cruise ship, the vibe, the fun and the tastes of the greatest international festival dedicated to chocolate.

There will be masterclasses from chocolate artisans, as well as workshops run by expert chocolatiers.

Plus you'll also be able to take part in chocolate and pastry-making classes.

And the chocolate-themed fun doesn't stop there as the shore-based excursions are also dipped in chocolate, such as a trip to Barcelona’s Chocolate Museum.

The cruise ship holds 3,780 guests and has a swimming pool, water slide and an Aperol Spritz bar on board, too.

Prices start from £860 – excluding flights.
