Princess Cruises is a true original. They’ve built their success on one simple premise: you ask, we deliver. That’s why on a Princess cruise, you’re bound to discover the unexpected onboard, at the table, and on shore.
1. The Itineraries
Let your floating resort take you to the fun and sun of the Caribbean. Or perhaps Europe is more your style with a unique perspective of some of the most fascinating destinations like Rome, Barcelona, and the Greek Islands, with special emphasis on UNESCO World Heritage Sites and late night departures. If nature and wildlife is your cup of tea, how about a cruise to Alaska where you’ll explore pristine waterways, glaciers and humpback whales. And with Princess’ newest enrichment program, “North to Alaska,” you’ll get a deeper sense of the history and culture of Alaska through presentations from lumberjacks, an Iditarod champion, National Park Rangers and signature authentic Alaska cuisine.
2. The Excursions
Princess delivers an unbeatable experience on shore with immersive shore excursions for every interest, from wildlife to culture and culinary traditions. They’ve even partnered with Discovery Communications™ to offer Discovery and Animal Planet Recommended tours that bring hit shows to life, like Deadliest Catch and Gold Rush. There are also Discovery and Animal Planet Exclusive tours that have experiences you can only get through Princess.
3. The Dining
On board everything is fresh, authentic and delicious but you asked for more so Princess delivered. Award-winning Chef Curtis Stone serves up SHARE, a new concept in dining, based around the connection between people, food and stories. Be sure to check out the exciting Salty Dog Gastropub, and to take a sip or two of Princess’s own brew, the Seawitch Craft Beer.
4. The Activities
There’s always something to do on board day and night. With Princess@Sea you can use your phone to plan your day’s events and activities, review the ship’s itinerary and port guides, browse restaurant menus, even access your stateroom account! Be sure to check out Festivals of the World that recreate all the splendor of Mardi Gras, Rio Carnival, the Carnival of Venice and many, many more.
5. The Fun for Kids and Teens
Princess has activities for every age. Their Youth Centers offer lots of supervised activities for ages 3 to 12. And their Teen Lounges, for ages 13-17, are packed with Play Station games, movies, karaoke, and more. Be sure to drop your kids off for a fun-filled kids-only dinner. They’ll have a blast and you can enjoy a few quiet moments to yourselves.
6. The Luxury Beds
Princess has thought of everything, including your wellness. They’ve partnered with leading experts in both the science and beauty of sleep to develop the new Princess Luxury Bed. You’ll enjoy the ultimate sleep at sea and come back from your vacation feeling refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated.
