“Trekking to the Hidden Temple City”
SANTA CLARITA, (September 20, 2011) – Princess Cruises today revealed Angkor Wat, Cambodia as “Essential Experience #48” on its blog, “50 Essential Experiences: The Travel Bucket List,” leaving only two more experiences yet to be revealed to complete the list of 50. This week Cabin Inventory Specialist Vicki Cohen explorers Cambodia’s iconic temple, Angkor Wat.
She writes: “Angkor Wat is covered in stunning carvings that tell the story of wars, royalty and the gods so integral to the region. With so many stories depicted on the sandstone walls, it would take a lifetime to absorb them all. As I wandered among the extensive bas-reliefs portraying everything from conquests to everyday life, I tried to imagine what it was like to be in Angkor Wat during its prime a thousand years ago.’” 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.
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.
