Princess Cruises unveils gin tasting experiences on UK-based ship

Princess Cruises is offering a new gin tasting experience on its UK-based ship, the 2,670-guest Sapphire Princess.

As part of the experience, guests will have the opportunity to taste a range of gins, from light and floral to bold and heavy. Popular brands as well as lesser-known varieties will be on offer.

Afterwards, guests will be given the opportunity to taste and make the vessel's own 'Sapphire Princess' cocktail, which is now available on the ship.

Created in partnership with the Bombay Sapphire Distillery, the cocktail is served exclusively on Sapphire Princess. It has a generous measure of Bombay Sapphire gin, which is itself made with botanical ingredients sourced from several of the countries and destinations Sapphire Princess sails to. The cocktail's mixers include Blue Curacao to evoke the sea, and a splash of Prosecco to signify the fizz and bubbles created by waves in the water.

Guests will also learn about the history of gin, including the reasons for its recent booming popularity.

The tastings are available for $25 per person.

Throughout their cruise and with their newfound knowledge, guests also have the option to sit back and relax in one of the 12 bars onboard and let one of the bartenders serve a cocktail creation from the extensive onboard menu.

The 2,670-guest Sapphire Princess is sailing from Southampton on a number of roundtrip cruises to the Mediterranean, northern Europe and Canada & New England from April to October.

Princess Cruise is offering an 11-night Canary Islands cruise sailing roundtrip from Southampton on Sapphire Princess. Departing Tuesday October 8, 2019, ports of call include Vigo (Spain), Madeira (Portugal), Santa Cruz De Tenerife (Spain), Gran Canaria (Canary Islands) and Lanzarote (Canary Islands). Prices from £999 per person.
