Princess Cruises Announces “Sabor Latino” Theme on Select 7-Day Caribbean Cruises

Princess Cruises has announced a series of Latin-themed cruise itineraries on 7-day Caribbean cruises on two Caribbean Princess sailings in July 2019. The “Sabor Latino” themed cruises promise to deliver the Caribbean cruise experience, tailored to the preferences of the Latin American guest, with late night DJ dance parties, an onboard Spanish-speaking host, shore excursions guided in Spanish, and Latin-inspired cocktails. On the first “Sabor Latino” voyage, Caribbean Princess will sail roundtrip from Ft. Lauderdale on July 13, 2019 for an Eastern Caribbean cruise itinerary featuring breathtaking beaches and old world charm, visiting Princess Cays — Princess Cruises’ private island experience in the Bahamas – plus calls in St. Thomas, and St. Maarten. Then on July 20, 2019, Caribbean Princess will sail roundtrip from Ft. Lauderdale on a Western Caribbean cruise itinerary featuring ancient Mayan ruins, eco-adventures, and gorgeous beaches while calling in Grand Cayman, Roatán, Belize City, and Cozumel. Latin-inspired culinary menu items from Argentine chef Gustavo Schneider paired with special guest speaker Bill Esparza round out the “Sabor Latino” menu. Exclusively on the July 20th voyage, Esparza – a James Beard award-winner, author, and food TV personality – will speak on how Latin American culinary trends have permeated throughout Los Angeles and culinary anecdotes from his time as a professional saxophone player on the road in Latin America. Select Spanish-language films, Latin American television channels, plus Spanish-language magic entertainment from special guest Pablo Pol, Spanish-language stand-up comedy from Mariano Potel, and performances from singer-songwriter Yaire all together provide an impressive entertainment lineup. Over the last few years, Caribbean Princess has been at the forefront of major fleet revitalizations, with many family-oriented features and amenities including breakthrough technology, family accommodations, new dining experiences and entertainment offerings.

Madeira: History and Culture, Nature, The Climate, Wine, Gastronomy

Celebrating its 600th anniversary this coming year in 2019, Madeira is a vacation destination both unspoiled and up-to date. Contradictions in co-existence! An off-road open-air jeep tour takes you to areas of the island untouched by time, where farming on steep slopes continues as it has through the ages. Ride the modern cable car up the mountain to visit the Monte Palace Botanical Gardens, then have a seat on a man-powered old-fashioned wicker basket taboggan sled built for two for a ride down along stone streets. Choose lodging in the style of the traditional 16th century “quintas” (farmhouse inn) such as the Quinta do Furão on a cliff top in Santana on the northeast coast or stay at the 5-star Pestana Carlton Madeira, a luxurious and charming hotel in the city of Funchal, with a Ballroom for meetings and a cocktail lounge for live music listening and dancing.
