Beginning this summer, Princess Cruises guests sailing in the Caribbean will experience a new immersive experience with the “Rhythm of the Caribbean,” offering an authentic dive into island life.
Guests can also take advantage of insider tips on must-do excursions at each port, dance beneath the stars to vibrant Caribbean rhythms, and immerse themselves in one-of-a-kind cultural activities.
“Rhythms of the Caribbean” launches aboard Caribbean Princess in May 2018 and is scheduled to roll out on additional ships for the upcoming fall/winter season.
Food & Drink
A wide range of dishes will be available onboard that offer a diverse fusion of flavors drawn from the Caribbean’s coasts. Some options will include Jamaican jerk chicken, red snapper, creole black mussels, Puerto Rican mofongo, and pineapple crème brûlée.
Princess is planning to combine the history of the region with locally inspired ingredients for delicious Caribbean cocktails. Examples include rum punch, colorful coladas, mojitos, tropical coolers, and even a regional rum tasting.
