Seabourn is introducing artisanal K+M Chocolate to evening turndown service aboard its ships.

K+M Chocolate is the work of Michelin-starred chef Thomas Keller and Italian olive oil producer Armando Manni. Keller is a Seabourn culinary partner; his dishes are featured on all the line's ships and in the specialty steak house The Grill by Thomas Keller.

K+M chocolatier Chi Bui helped to create custom flavors specifically for Seabourn. Each piece is handcrafted in Napa Valley, California.

Starting in first quarter 2018, the chocolates will be presented during turndown service across the fleet. The flavors include hazelnut milk chocolate, milk chocolate, smoked chili milk chocolate, blood orange milk chocolate, sea salt dark chocolate and cherry milk chocolate.

'For anyone who loves chocolate, K+M Chocolate is surely going to surprise even the most refined palate because of the way each flavor comes to life,' Seabourn president Rick Meadows said. 'We've been proud to work with chef Thomas Keller over the past few years, and this is another delightful way to extend our partnership to the benefit of our guests.'
