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

My days in Budapest flew by in hotel conference rooms, just as you’d expect. But then we traveled to Prague, and it turned out to be a place that would envelop me in history, and its gracious, old-world charm and urban beauty would inspire and surprise me.” read more
