Princess Cruises has revealed a new dining experience for guests booked in suite accommodation aboard two of its newest ships that will replicate the Mediterranean, engaging all the senses.
Dubbed “360: An Extraordinary Experience” and available now aboard Discovery Princess and on Enchanted Princess from late January 2023, Princess Cruises says the new product will be its “most epic experience ever offered”.
The invitation-only experience transports guests nightly to the Mediterranean – no matter where they’re actually sailing – engaging all of their senses with the tastes, sights, sounds, touches and fragrances of the Mediterranean.
Guests booked in suite accommodations are invited to embark on a six senses journey showcasing the spectacular hilltops of Santorini, Amalfi Coast, Barcelona and Provence. Through synchronised authentic storytelling, imagery, music, scents, cuisine and visual film, guests are introduced to local ingredients, artisans, passionate purveyors, and culinary methods simultaneously mirrored with a seven-course gourmet experience including wines that emerge from the story of each destination.
“360 is a fusion of master storytelling, world-class cuisine, visual entertainment and ground-breaking technology that manifests in what can only be described as an Extraordinary Experience,” said John Padgett, President of Princess Cruises.
“360 is a remarkable adventure that immerses our guests into the compelling cultures and flavours of the Mediterranean in a 90-minute celebration of the senses.”
With two seatings nightly, the cloaked venue accommodates 20 guests surrounded by LED walls in a circular format that places guests into featured destinations using stunning 4K cinematography. The Mediterranean takes centre stage as guests are drawn into the memories of a fellow traveller who relives her adventures and local connections made in each destination as her travel journal comes to life. Actress and model Brooke Shields is the voice of Bethany, the voyager who takes guests on the sensory journey.
360: An Extraordinary Experience is configurable and adaptable, with the Mediterranean taking the debut spotlight. Each guest participating in the experience receives a unique and limited “360” Princess Medallion.
