Princess Cruises is elevating the guest experience onboard with the introduction of a new level of cruise personalization with a first-of-its-kind interactive technology platform within the One Cruise Experience Access Network (O.C.E.A.N.). This device, worn as a pendant on a wristband or placed in a pocket, has no discernible technology, no menu to navigate, no on-and-off switch and no charging. Yet, it promises to be a perfect enhancement to guest experiences in unprecedented ways. Join us in welcoming the Ocean Medallion Class!
As the first Carnival Corporation brand to feature the Ocean Medallion Class, Princess Cruises has raised the bar to unbelievable heights in the cruise industry – and this may very well be the missing piece vacationers have been yearning for. Imagine spending time doing what you actually love to do on a cruise, instead of learning to love what has already been curated. This is what Princess Cruises hopes to achieve with its latest technology.

Princess Cruises recently premiered their next specialty dining experience, The Salty Dog Gastropub, now aboard the Crown Princess. This new dining experience pairs small plates of gourmet pub favorites with premium cocktails, wines and, of course, Princess Cruises’ own Seawitch craft beers.
The menu and aesthetic were designed as part of a collaborative effort with Chef Ernesto Uchimura of Los Angeles, best known for his culinary masterwork at Umami Burger and Plan Check Kitchen + Bar. Consistent with Princess Cruises’ “Come Back New” mentality, guests will be encouraged to try The Salty Dog Gastropub’s new take on pub classics like burgers, short ribs, lobster mac ‘n’ cheese and more.
“A gastropub at sea is an innovative concept and it inspired me to get creative in the galley,” said Chef Ernesto Uchimura. “The Salty Dog Gastropub’s menu will not only satisfy comfort food cravings but also offer guests new pub food flavors and tastes perfectly paired with a craft beer or fine whiskey.”
Speaking of fine whiskeys, Princess Cruises is also debuting a new international whiskey menu aboard the Crown Princess, as well as the Dawn Princess, Diamond Princess, Golden Princess, Sea Princess and Sun Princess. By mid-2016, Princess hopes to have their new whiskey menu available fleetwide, with the exception of the Pacific Princess. On top of the expansive menu of award-winning whiskeys from around the world, this new menu will also offer whiskey flights for sampling.
The Salty Dog Gastropub costs only $19 per guest and is now open aboard the Crown Princess, and will soon debut aboard the Emerald Princess and Ruby Princess in December.

This exciting and fresh summer shrimp recipe is brought to you by Princess Cruises. Summer is the perfect time to enjoy this delicious appetizer because of all the fresh ingredients that can be found around this time of year. For example, the tomatillo, also known as the Mexican green tomato, is great this time of year. They should be purchased when firm and then can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three weeks. The tomatillo’s lemony taste makes it great for pairing with seafood, like shrimp! Below we have included a shopping list as well as preparation instructions for Princess Cruises’ Caribbean Tiger Shrimp.
- 24 jumbo tiger shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 2 quarts water
- 2 lemons, halved
- 1 ½ cups white wine
- 1 celery stalk
- 1 onion, quartered
- 10 white peppercorns
- 1 bay leaf
- Salt & pepper
- 1 cup mango
- ¾ cup tomatillo, chopped
- ¼ red pepper,chopped
- ¼ cup red onion, chopped
- 2 TBS chives, chopped
- 3 TBS white wine vinegar
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- ¼ tsp cayenne
- Salt & pepper
Wash the shrimp, bring the ingredients for the court-bouillon to a boil, add the shrimp and poach for approximately 6 minutes or until just cooked. Remove shrimp from bouillon and immediately chill in ice water.
Mix all of the diced and measured salsa ingredients together and adjust seasoning to your preference. Salsa tastes best after being chilled for 30 minutes after preparing. Place the tiger shrimp and salsa over lettuce and garnish with a lime slice. Enjoy!
