Holiday Menus from Princess Cruises

Submitted by on November 18, 2022 – 7:58 pmNo Comment

Princess Cruises (Carnival Corporation)Guests sailing on Princess Cruises during the 2022 holiday season will experience a whole new holiday dining offering — including a new gourmet Thanksgiving menu.

The Princess culinary arts team, led by Chef Rudi Sodamin, has unveiled the Princess Cruise Culinary Collection of Holiday Menus available in the main dining rooms throughout the fleet ranging from a Thanksgiving feast featuring five entrées to the foods of Hanukkah, Christmas dishes from traditions around the world, and concluding with a sparkling New Year’s Gala menu.

An American Tradition

Over the Thanksgiving holiday period, Princess will offer dozens of sailings to ports of call around the world. No matter where they happen to be in their itinerary, each ship will recognize the American Thanksgiving holiday on November 24 in high style—with festive autumnal decorations, and Thanksgiving-inspired activities with football broadcast on outdoor big screens. Of course, the centerpiece of the Princess Cruise Thanksgiving celebration will be the elaborate Thanksgiving feast.

“Growing up in a large family, holiday meals were always extremely important to me and a source of excitement and anticipation. But it wasn’t until I was an adult and went to work at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City that I learned about the American tradition of Thanksgiving where food is the undisputed star of the show,” said the Austrian-born Sodamin, head of Culinary Arts for Princess Cruises. “The imaginative and innovative new Thanksgiving menu honors cherished holiday traditions while also introducing some exciting fresh options that we hope can become new favorites. Collaborating with our talented team of culinary artists on this menu has been a meaningful and memorable. This year will be a totally stress-free holiday as we’ll do all the shopping, cooking and clean up too!”

“The entire Food & Beverage staff sees this new Thanksgiving menu as an opportunity to go the extra mile in impressing our guests,” says Sami Kohen, Princess’ vice president of food and beverage. “Princess has always done a great job taking the stress out of the holidays and making each holiday special for our guests, and with this new Thanksgiving menu, we have elevated the experience to a whole new level.”

Thanksgiving menu

The four-course Thanksgiving menu offers a choice of five entrées. Naturally, there will be juicy whole roasted turkey served with apple sage dressing, giblet gravy, and the rest of the traditional American Thanksgiving trimmings like caramelized sweet potato, brussels sprouts, and whole cranberry sauce. Vegetarians will appreciate potato gnocchi with roasted butternut squash and sage in a light Champagne-parmesan cream or the grilled vegetable mille feuille with roasted red pepper sauce. The other entrées on offer are a grilled jumbo shrimp and seared sea scallops combination with a tomato-caper beurre blanc and a festive pineapple-glazed ham spiked with cloves served in a pineapple-bourbon sauce with mashed yams.

Princess Cruises (part of Carnival Corporation) is an international premium cruise line and tour company operating a fleet of 15 modern cruise ships, carrying millions of guests each year to 330 destinations around the globe, including the Caribbean, Alaska, Panama Canal, Mexican Riviera, Europe, South America, Australia/New Zealand, the South Pacific, Hawaii, Asia, Canada/New England, Antarctica, and World Cruises.
