Foodies everywhere rejoice!

Princess Cruises announced Monday it will be hosting its fourth Culinary Cruise, which will feature food journalist Bill Esparza this year.

Departing Los Angeles on March 22 on the Ruby Princess, the voyage will take passengers along the west coast of the United States and Mexico, stopping at four ports along the way through March 26.

Travelers will be treated to unique gastronomy experiences, including chef-led cooking demonstrations, tequila tastings, cocktail making tutorials, custom shore excursions and Q+A sessions.

“I am honored to work with Princess Cruises to bring Mexican flavors and culture to life through authentic culinary programming,” Esparza said in a statement. “Princess has a thoughtful approach to immersing guests in its destinations and connecting them to the culture and local food.”

In addition to the appearance from Esparza, the four-day culinary cruise will also feature notable chefs Sabina Bandera and Carlos Salgado, as well the award-winning Princess Cruises culinary team.

Passengers will be able to experience special themed menus throughout the ship's restaurant and bars, in addition to learning cuisine skills from the guest chefs along for the voyage.
