On board Discovery Princess®, Enchanted Princess®, and Sky Princess®, our gelateria Gelato has been certified by the experts of Ospitalita Italiana to be an authentic Italian experience.
One of Italy’s most famous desserts, gelato was created in the 16th century for the legendary Catherine de' Medici of Florence and quickly spread beyond its borders. Call it a sugary delight, heaven in a bowl – just don’t call it ice cream. Its creaminess doesn’t come from lots of butterfat, it comes from the process of mixing balanced ingredients which means it has less fat and fewer calories than American ice cream. Bonus!
We offer the real Italian product, producing it fresh with Italian-certified ingredients and equipment each day in our pastry kitchen. Our corporate pastry chef trained with the best Italian chefs at the Gelato Carpigiani University in Bologna and the Gelato Comprital Atheneum in Milano to uncover the secret to making this sweet treat. Choose from a variety of flavors – from fior di latte and hazelnut to tiramisu and pistachio, even dairy-free, fat-free sorbets and sugar-free, fat-free gelato – and enjoy them by themselves or in such tasty combinations as “coppe” and “affogato.”
Experience this sensation for yourself at Gelato, designed by Italian artisans to reflect a gelato shop you’d find in one of the country’s many piazzas.
