Sip And Sail With Princess Cruises On Two Themed Cruises
Princess Cruises launched themed wine cruises featuring Wagner and Jackson Family wines on 2023 voyages!
Sail aboard Discovery Princess on October 1, 2023, and Sapphire Princess on October 8, 2023, on six- and seven-day voyages with a unique opportunity to experience two renowned family wineries – the Wagner Family of Wine (including Caymus Vineyards and their globally recognized Cabernet Sauvignon), and Jackson Family Wines (who possess the most coastal vineyards in California and Oregon).
“Enhancing our Pacific Coastal cruises with these two specially-themed cruises offer our guests an engaging experience while we’re visiting these top wine regions,” said Sami Kohen, Princess Cruises vice president of food and beverage. “Our relationships with the Wagner and Jackson families pair their winemaking prowess with our enthusiastic chefs to serve up wine and food pairings our guests will sip and savor.”
Visitors will get a chance to discover Pacific Wine Country, home to several Napa Valley vineyards. Guests will partake in delightful onboard and curated food and wine events, including winemaker dinners, expert-guided wine tastings led by wine hosts and sommeliers, and food and wine pairings, to name a few.
