The history of chocolate can be traced back to1900 BC, when Mokaya and pre-Olmec civilisations ground up cacao beans to create indulgent drinks. Today, chocolate tantalises taste buds all over the world … and even at sea. One of chocolate’s biggest fans is Princess Cruises. In fact, the line is so head over heels for chocolate that they have introduced a pioneering new ‘Chocolate Journeys’ experience. This industry-first has rolled out across the line’s entire fleet and is overseen by world famous chocolate connoisseur, Norman Love.
