Princess Cruises, a globally recognized cruise brand, has announced a fresh collaboration with esteemed Australian wine company, Wine Selectors.
This partnership will manifest in a four-day, wine-themed Seacation aboard the Royal Princess, a Medallion-class ship with the capacity to host 3,560 guests. The cruise will embark from Sydney on November 15, 2023, make a maiden call into Hobart on November 17, and finally return to Sydney.
Aboard the Seacation, passengers can look forward to a medley of wine-themed activities orchestrated by Wine Selectors. These include complimentary tastings of exclusive wines and a guided masterclass hosted by renowned winemaker and international wine show judge, Dave Mavor. The masterclass will be paired with gourmet food for a reasonable fee of $30 per person.
Additionally, a unique opportunity to partake in a five-course dinner with Tasmanian Winemaker Jeremy Dineen is on offer. The dinner, hosted at Princess Cruises’ award-winning Chef’s Table Lumiere, will feature a menu paired with Tasmanian wines and will be available to only 12 guests at $140 per person.
Stuart Allison, Senior Vice President of Princess Cruises Australia Pacific, UK & Europe, praised the partnership as a step towards enhancing Princess’ culinary offering. “This collaboration with Wine Selectors will indeed elevate the experience on this Royal Princess voyage,” Allison stated. He also emphasized Princess Cruises’ pride in having one of the most extensive wine lists in the industry and providing their guests with access to such an exclusive, curated collection.
