Princess Cruises has united with master mixologist, author and television personality Rob Floyd to tantalize guests’ taste buds with flavors from every corner of the world. In addition to the new cocktails, the line has added 20 new high-end and exotic spirits, 39 new wines by the glass, and 17 new international and craft beers to the new menu. 

Floyd believes spectacular drinks combine the best of “The Three T’s.” First and foremost is “Taste,” as interesting ingredient combinations producing delicious flavors. The second element, “Technique,” refers to the skill and craft that goes into creating each drink. Last is "Tale" a fascinating and creative inspiration behind each unique cocktail. 

Floyd's inspiration for these new onboard offerings include fresh ingredients from the destinations Princess Cruises visits. The bars and lounges throughout the ships will feature new, themed menus, and beautiful creative glassware.
