|Princess Cruises’ delicious partnership with
internationally acclaimed master chocolatier and pastry designer Norman Love is
set to expand, allowing guests to experience even more mouthwatering creations
on their cruise. |
Following the overwhelming success of the cruise
line’s signature Chocolate Journeys experience, Princess has again partnered
with Chef Love to create a series of delicious new chocolate products,
including breakfast treats and a premium chocolate cocktail.
The indulgent offerings will be rolled out
across the fleet from November, including on Princess’ Australian-based ships.
Princess Cruises Vice President Australia &
New Zealand Stuart Allison said the partnership with Chef Love had proven very
popular with travellers, which was no surprise given the results of a recent
Princess Cruises’ survey showing that 40 per cent of Australians eat more
chocolate while on holiday.
“Australians are well known for their love of
good chocolate – in fact according to our survey almost 60 per cent of Australians
have chocolate cravings and more than 50 per cent eat chocolate when they are
happy – so we’re confident the latest offerings will go down a treat with our
guests as they enjoy their holidays,” Mr Allison said.
Trained in France and a former executive pastry
chef of the Ritz-Carlton, Chef Love has been recognised as one of the top 10
Chocolatiers in North America by Dessert Magazine.
His new sweet experiences include:
· New Premium Chocolate
Cocktail – Designed by Chef Love, a new premium chocolate cocktail option will
be available on the main dining room dessert menu.
· Afternoon Tea –
During Princess’ popular afternoon tea, guests will now be treated to one of
seven yummy pastries and six cakes designed by Chef Love, including Baked
Chocolate Tart with Lemon Chantilly, Chocolate Raspberry Clafoutis and Vanilla
Chocolate Chip Cake.
· Chocolate Soufflé –
Available on select evenings, the main dining room desserts will feature a new
signature Chocolate Soufflé with white chocolate sauce.
· Chocolate Cookie –
Chef Love has created two tasty new premium chocolate cookies that will be
available in select locations around the ship including the International Café.
· International Café
Treats – A complimentary chocolate treat designed by Chef Love will be featured
daily in the International Café, with six new pastries created such as a
Chocolate Berry Tartlet with Coconut Mousse and Milk Chocolate Chantilly
· Breakfast Treats –
Savoury breakfast items designed by Chef Love and featuring touches of premium
chocolate will be offered each morning in the Horizon Court.
· Evening Treats – Each
evening, one of 12 delicious new chocolate cakes from Chef Love will be offered
in the Horizon Court. Cakes include a White Chocolate and Lemon Tart and an
Almond Chocolate Coffee Cake.
The delectable new chocolate items will be in
addition to the chocolate desserts, drinks, spa treatments, cooking
demonstrations, chocolate and wine pairing, petit fours and formal night treats
already offered onboard.
