Essential Experience Number 36 - Tokyo, Japan

princess-curise-logo.gif “Hospitality Needs No Translation”

Princess Cruises reveals Tokyo, Japan as “Essential Experience #36” on its blog, “50 Essential Experiences: The Travel Bucket List.” This week Passenger Programs Specialist Chris Nicholson relives a special visit to the Tokyo home of a Japanese family he’d met on a previous cruise.

He writes: “Before me stood a house that I can only describe as coming straight off of an antique porcelain plate. With peaked roofs and gabled eaves, the house was a charming relic of a bygone era.” read more

These and other stories can be found online at www.50EssentialExperiences.com, where a new experience is unveiled weekly. Each is authored by a Princess destination expert – a long-serving and well-traveled shipboard or shoreside employee.

Contact us to book a Princess Cruise or see the Cruise with Naka’s page to book cruises around the world.

One of the best-known names in cruising, Princess Cruises first set sail in 1965 with a single ship cruising to Mexico. Today, the line has grown to become the third largest cruise line in the world, renowned for innovative ships, an array of onboard options, and an environment of exceptional customer service. A recognized leader in worldwide cruising, Princess offers approximately 1.3 million passengers each year the opportunity to escape to the top destinations around the globe, aboard a fleet of 17 modern vessels.

Princess Cruises was catapulted to stardom in 1977 when one of its ships, Pacific Princess, was cast in a starring role on a new television show called “The Love Boat.” The weekly series, which introduced millions of viewers to the concept of a sea-going vacation, was an instant hit and both the company name and its “seawitch” logo have remained synonymous with cruising ever since. The show, which can still seen around the world, has been widely credited with fueling the dramatic expansion of the industry.
