The package features two of each of  the following: 

  • A custom-designed sterling silver charm bracelet featuring a sterling silver sand dollar charm with an emerald accent, created to commemorate the launch of Emerald Princess.
  • “Exotic Hand and Sole Delight Foot Ritual” -- a Lotus Spa manicure and pedicure.
  • Half-day pass to The Sanctuary, the ship’s adults-only retreat
  • Reserved seats for a wine tasting event.
  • 8”x10” photos of your choice. 

The package can be reserved onboard by all mother and daughters 21 years of age and older. Emerald Princess will begin its winter season of Caribbean voyages from Port Everglades in October.
