Default contact for "scholarship at sea" type programs

I have my intermediate cellar masters certificate and am working on my advanced. I will then take my certified sommelier exam. I have also been in the wine marketing business for several years. I am interested in teaching wine tasting/wine education classes on board a ship in exchange for cruise fare. Does anyone know a company to contact to do this or do I contact the cruise line directly? Or do cruise lines just use their sommelier to teach these type of classes?
Thanks

Default Re: contact for "scholarship at sea" type program

Very good question. Many of the positions that used to be filled by consultants/guest lecturers are now filled internally. I suspect this is true for wine tasting since the mainline cruises would be pitching their own stock, purchased by their own folk. Smaller, specialty, upscale lines might carry consultants for small lot, regional, or exotic wines? Might check longer cruises on top shelf midclass ships, say HAL's Rotterdam, Cunard, P&O, and then the more intimate lines?
