Ervin didn't want to give away too much about what sort of events wills take place. "We've found that part of what makes the experience fun is the element of surprise, so we don't like to give away too much information ahead of time," she said.

Goldin explained that the events may be based on fan input.

"We've been soliciting ideas from our fans since last year and have tried incorporating as many of their suggestions as possible. We're proud to be able to offer this trip on the Golden Princess. We consider Princess one of the world's finest cruise lines," Goldin said.
