Princess Cruises has announced a new culinary shore excursion program in collaboration with Bon Appétit, offering guests the opportunity to enjoy authentic culinary experiences through a selection of 30 new tours.

Through the new partnership, Princess guests will enjoy tailored excursions that offer opportunities to engage with local life in a small-group setting, exposing them to local ingredients and cooking styles, as well as demonstrations and tastings from local chefs and personalities.

“As a leader in culinary excellence at sea, we seek to offer our guests hands-on, immersive culinary journeys from the destinations we visit,” said Bruce Krumrine, Vice President, Global Shore Excursions, Princess Cruises. “From scone making in the countryside of Ireland to crafting the perfect paella on the knotted streets of medieval Spain, these newly developed experiences are sure to bring the spirit of these destinations to life for our guests.”
