Princess Cruises partners with Wine Selectors for wine-themed Seacation

Princess Cruises announced a new partnership with Wine Selectors hosting a four-day wine-themed Seacation aboard Royal Princess.

The 142,000-tonne, 3,560-guest Medallion-class ship will depart Sydney on 15 November 2023, making her maiden call into Hobart on 17 November before returning to Sydney.

Guests onboard the Seacation will enjoy a variety of wine-themed activities hosted by Wine Selectors, such as complimentary tastings of exclusive wines.

Guests can also enjoy a guided masterclass hosted by International wine show judge, winemaker and educator, Dave Mavor, matched with gourmet food for $30 per person. Also available will be an intimate, five-course dinner with Tasmanian Winemaker Jeremy Dineen at Princess Cruises award-winning Chef’s Table Lumiere.

The menu, complete with expertly matched Tasmanian wine pairings, will be strictly limited to 12 guests at
$140 per person.

Stuart Allison, SVP Princess Cruises Australia Pacific, UK & Europe, said the new partnership further elevates Princess’ culinary offering.

“Princess Cruises prides itself on offering premium experiences onboard, and this partnership with Wine Selectors on this Royal Princess voyage will really take it to the next level,” Allison said.

“We’re proud of our reputation for having one of the most extensive wine lists in the industry, and are delighted to give our guests access to this exclusive, curated collection.”

Lois Donaldson, general manager from Wine Selectors, said the four-day Seacation is the perfect introduction to life at sea and will be an unmissable experience for all wine lovers.

“For nearly 50 years, we’ve brought the best wine into Australian homes, and this partnership will see our unmatched expertise and local offering onboard one of Princess’ finest ships,” Donaldson said.

“We’re excited to bring the best of Tasmania onboard Royal Princess for this special event, and can’t wait to share our passion for wine with guests onboard.”

Wine Selectors members will receive a 10 per cent discount on the fare price, plus an exclusive bottle of wine on arrival.
