Princess Cruises on Monday announced a Culinary Cruise that will leave Los Angeles and focus on Mexican cuisine.
The Santa Clarita cruise line has recruited food journalist Bill Esparza as host. The ship Ruby Princess will set sail from Los Angeles on March 22 and return March 26 on the initial voyage.
Esparaza will bring along chefs Sabina Bandera and Carlos Salgado to collaborate with the Princess culinary staff for a week. The chefs will participate in cocktail making tutorials, tequila tastings and question-and-answer sessions.
“I am honored to work with Princess Cruises to bring Mexican flavors and culture to life through authentic culinary programming,” said Esparaza in a statement. “Princess has a thoughtful approach to immersing guests in its destination and connecting them to the culture and local food.”
