Princess Unveils Two “Pacific Coast Wine & Food Experience” Cruises

Princess Cruises has opened bookings for two “Pacific Coast Wine & Food Experience” cruises onboard Discovery Princess and Sapphire Princess. These six- and seven-day voyages bring together two family wineries, including the Wagner Family of Wine, which includes Caymus Vineyards and its cabernet sauvignon, and Jackson Family Wines, the largest owner of coastal vineyards in California and Oregon.

Guests can explore the Pacific Wine Country visiting Napa Valley wineries, with a range of onboard and curated wine and food experiences. The two upcoming “Pacific Coast Wine & Food Experience” cruises include:

  • Wagner Family of Wine onboard Discovery Princess (October 1–7, 2023), sailing from Vancouver to Los Angeles with stops in Victoria, B.C. and an overnight in San Francisco, highlighted by an excursion to Caymus Suisun Winery in American Canyon. Additional activities include Wine Discovery, Caymus Winemaker Dinner and Nautical Wine Tasting.
  • Jackson Family of Wine onboard Sapphire Princess (October 8-15, 2023), sailing from Vancouver to Los Angeles, with day-long stops at four coastal destinations, including Victoria, Astoria, San Francisco and San Diego. Guests will enjoy wine pairings that celebrate the cuisine of the region. Other themed activities include Wine Discovery, Jackson Family Wines dinner and Winery Tours from San Francisco, Chardonnay Comparative Tasting, Explore Oregon, Food and Wine Pairing Event, Old World/New World Comparative Tasting and VIP Winemaker Dinner.

Guests can purchase an experience package onboard for $229.

Earlier this year, Princess unveiled the Caymus Vineyards Winemaker Dinner. Available across the fleet for $140 per person, the new Winemaker Dinner leverages the expansive expertise of Chuck Wagner, owner and winemaker of Napa Valley’s Caymus Vineyards, to deliver a five-course menu crafted to complement the tasting notes of his wines. The dinner, available for 12 guests per seating, will be offered up to three times per cruise, based on voyage length, and interested guests can reserve their spot once onboard.
