“Princess guests love their coffee as the morning ritual at the International Café in the legendary Princess Piazza. With a relentless focus on what’s important to our guests, we are upgrading the experience and magnifying our Italian heritage with Lavazza,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises.

“Our Lavazza partnership gives our guests yet another thing to love about a Princess vacation,” Padgett continued.

Princess Cruises’ new Lavazza partnership extends beyond coffee

Lavazza coffee will begin rolling out on Princess ships throughout the spring, and guests can expect to enjoy both the brand’s array of hot coffee options and convenient canned coffee drinks.

The relationship will extend beyond offering Lavazza products and services on board to include unique coffee-inspired dinners and recipes collectively designed by Lavazza experts and Princess executive chefs. Princess Cruises is also planning educational sessions, tastings, food pairings, and samplings with the new partner brand, along with promotions and exclusive events.

“We have been inspired by the way Princess Cruises creates memorable experiences for their guests and feel a strong synergy between both brands in our commitment to quality, innovation, and entertainment,” shared Camille Vareille, Lavazza Group VP and head of marketing for the Americas.

“We are excited to come onboard to offer an elevated coffee program and showcase our premium products to a broader, international audience,” continued Vareille.
