Rainforest Adventures Cruises into Award-winning Territory
Princess Cruises gives top marks to three Rainforest Adventures parks: Costa Rica Pacific, Dominica and St. Lucia
May 15, 2012, Miami, FL – While Rainforest Adventures might be best known for offering unique ecotourism opportunities to Central American and Caribbean travellers, a string of awards from Princess Cruises has put the six-park company firmly on the map of seafarers from around the globe.
Operating under strict conservation guidelines, Rainforest Adventures has been on the scene since 1994 when the first park (Costa Rica Atlantic) constructed the world’s first rainforest aerial tram – without removing a single tree in the process.
Today, Rainforest Adventures has expanded to six parks (located in Costa Rica Pacific, Costa Rica Atlantic, St. Lucia, Dominica, Jamaica and Panama), each offering guests thrilling, eye-opening and educational jungle activities that range from zipline and bird watching tours to naturalist-led aerial tram rides and nature walks.
“Since the 2007/08, three of our parks have earned a total of six prestigious Princess Cruises’ High Volume Tour of the Season awards, with the most recent being just last month for our Costa Rica Pacific location,” said Annika Bratt, vice president of sales for Rainforest Adventures. “These awards recognize the importance of local tour operators and their staff as part of the Princess experience in the Caribbean. We’re honored to have been chosen, once again, as a top tour operator by the passengers of Princess Cruises.”
Recipients of the Princess Cruises awards are chosen based upon the number of positive passenger comments. Winners include tour companies and individual guides from Princess’ extensive line-up of more than 820 shore excursion options throughout the Caribbean region.
