Chocolate Cruise Puts The Booze Cruise To Shame

Better than Willy Wonka's chocolate river.

The world is officially a wonderful place. Not only can you take a cruise to one of your favorite glorious locations, but you can now do so while enjoying one of the earth's most glorious creations -- chocolate.

Princess Cruises has partnered with Norman Love Confections -- a chocolate boutique in Florida -- to charter an all new Chocolate Journeys. It's like our dreams of sailing down Willy Wonka's chocolate rivers have finally come true.

The chocolate program, which is set to be launched at the end of 2014 on Regal Princess, offers an array of beautifully designed chocolate desserts from Norman Love, chocolate pops to greet you when you board the ship, a chocolate and wine pairing, chocolate cocktail menu, chocolate cooking demonstrations AND a chocolate spa. Apparently, chocolate has extraordinary, hydrating, anti-oxidant properties that's best taken advantage of through body treatments.

We haven't even told you the best part yet: come the new year, Princess Cruises plans to bring the chocolate program to all 18 of their ships. Just like that, cruises are looking a whole lot sweeter.
