Here’s a quick look at what’s new this week in cruising, and how it could impact your next trip…
- Sweet news for chocoholics: Princess Cruises' expanded Chocolate Journeys experience with acclaimed chocolatier Norman Love will have you indulging morning, noon, and night. We're talking chocolate muffins and Danishes at breakfast, chocolate bites at afternoon tea, and a nightly chocolate cake at the buffet -- among other yummy options. You'll find the cocoa-licious treats in the main dining room, the 24-hour cafe, bars, and even at the spa.
- Want to see the world? If you've got 102 days available from March to June 2018 (and a few bucks, too) you can visit 29 countries and 61 ports of call on Azamara Club Cruises' first-ever world cruise. The sailing is from Sydney to London, with fares starting from $27,932.
- The thrills are multiplying and we're losing control … over word the Tony Award-winning musical "Grease," will be the featured show on Royal Caribbean's 5,500-passenger Harmony of the Seas, which will debut in May as the largest ship in the world. The stage production, adapted specially for the cruise line, will also be on the Independence of the Seas beginning in July.
- Get ready to laugh out loud. Carnival Cruise Line has added hilariously funny and celebrity obsessed Kathy Griffin to its Carnival LIVE concert series, with performances on the Carnival Fantasy (February 24) and Carnival Breeze (February 25) while the ships are docked in Cozumel. Tickets start from $50, going up to $200 for a VIP experience including a photo opp.
