General information

Including a Kashrut Supervisor during the cruise.
Sailing in a beautiful, unique area, combining recreation and fun along with fascinating tours in the Baltic countries.
Have you ever heard of the youngest sea in the world? A beloved sea born just recently? Well, more precisely, in … the last ice age, something like 10,000 years back … young? “Relatively young,” the experts tell us, adding that thanks to this creation, another fascinating area has been created on our planet.

The Baltic Sea, this youngster, covers an area of 420,000 square meters and is dotted with no less than 100,000 islands (!). Nine countries surround it, and we will visit them and the main cities of seven of the nine: Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Norway and Denmark, while sailing in the Baltic Sea. The super cruise that we at Shai Bar-Ilan have planned for you, begins in Copenhagen and gives us an exciting entrance to the Baltic Sea, where we will discover the magnificent landscapes of northern Europe. This is a beautiful initial meeting with Northern Europe, which is possible only by cruise ship.
In order to maximize all these delights, we chose to reach the Baltic Sea in the middle of the summer, when the long days enable us to enjoy more, not only by observing the scenery that embellishes our journey, but also by touring the amazing cities in which we’ll drop anchor, and by walking through their charming cities.
Sailing on the Baltic Sea is not a normal cruise. This cruise provides us with a wealth of cultural sites, historical cities and enjoyment in European countries that are not usually on the routine tours. On our tours, we will learn of interesting geography, and the uniqueness of each of the cities, as well as about significant and fascinating historical periods. All on our 5-star cruise on the luxury Regal Princess.

Kosher information
Food and dining

Kashrut on Cruises

The kosher meals on other cruise lines are provided by each Cruise Lines’ kosher meal supplier. All kosher meal suppliers are under recognized rabbinical kashrut supervision.
On board the ship we have our own separated section of the kitchen in which all the kosher meals are prepared. Furthermore, we obtain brand new sets of flatware (meat and milk) for each and every cruise.
Hashgacha aboard ship is performed by our specially trained tour guides, and for large groups, there is a logistics and kashrut supervisor aboard as well.

The meals:

Breakfast is prepared using our utensils. We use local fresh fruits and vegetables, and we use milk products when they are permitted. We use kosher cereals, and bread. We usually serve hard boiled eggs and sometimes scrambled eggs or omelets. At breakfast, we prepare our lunches so that people have their choice as to what they eat for lunch. We bring food from Israel to supplement what is served in the hotel such as cheeses, peanut butter, tuna, etc.
For dinners, we serve either fish or meat (usually chicken) as our main course. In areas where meat is not available nor readily acquired, we will have fish. When possible, we acquire the meat locally from Chabad or other reliable kosher source, and in some cases we fly the meat in from Israel. We try to provide as many meat meals as possible. The main course at dinner is preceded by soup and salad and accompanied by freshly prepared vegetables. Dessert typically consists of fresh fruits.
We do not guarantee Pat Israel and Chalav Israel for all destinations.
In many destinations we have our own dishes and silverware. Where we don’t, we provide disposables at the meals. When we cook in hotel kitchens, we use our own knives, cutting boards, pots and pans, cooking implements and disposable metal trays. All food preparation is done on covered surfaces under the strict supervision of our trained staff/guides who function as our mashgichim.
We make great efforts to assure that our travelers will experience local foods first-hand, while maintaining stringent observance of Kashrut laws on all occasions.
On most of our tours, you will be accompanied by two of our staff members- one a guide for the tour who is knowledgeable about the places you are visiting and will accompany you throughout the day and the second, a person who will deal with the logistics of the tour and provide kashrut supervision in the kitchen.


It is our aim to provide the finest hotel possible in each area we visit. We require our hotels to allow us to work in the kitchen and to supervise the cooking and there are many hotels that are not willing to cooperate. They simply have no desire for us to be “meddling” in their cooking process nor are they happy about our bringing our equipment into their kitchens. We work very hard to find the best hotel in the area that will meet our requirements. Because we are not ready to compromise on kashrut, we may not always be able to use a five star hotel.
