When it comes down to it, there is simply no better way to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life than with a trip out to sea. With a fleet of 14 megaships (and two small ships) offering over 330 ports of call, Princess Cruise Line is a terrific option for your next vacation. It always amazes us how cruise companies can offer such an endless variety of amenities to suit every passenger for the ultimate one-of-a-kind vacation experience. And Princess is no exception.
Bringing on some new vessels in recent years, Princess has impressively maintained consistency with their signature services. The ships feature several innovative programs, exclusive to the Princess Line. ScholarShip at Sea offers enrichment classes (some for an additional fee) in cooking, ceramics, photography, finance, and even Zumba fitness.
Movie enthusiasts can take advantage of the Leonard Maltin Movie Club special film presentations (selected by the famous film critic and historian), followed by an hour-long group discussion hosted by the cruise staff.
For passengers interested in a “behind the scenes” view of their ship, for an additional fee, the Ultimate Ship Tour (not available on Sea Princess or Tahitian Princess) features a closer view of the engine control room, the galley, bridge and more. Traditional favorites, like Ping-Pong, water volleyball and virtual-reality golf simulators are also available on all Princess ships.
No cruise vacation would be complete without a massage or facial treatment at the renowned Lotus Spa. With so many onboard venues, passengers never have to leave the ship to enjoy a wonderful balance of relaxation and excitement on their vacation. Although, it would be a shame not to experience some of the amazing, award-winning itineraries that Princess Cruise Line has to offer.
For such impressively large megaships, Princess offers a surprisingly intimate atmosphere. Each ship is designed to give you plenty of room to yourself, with spacious decks, comfortably elegant public spaces and inviting balcony staterooms. Yet each also creates wonderful opportunities to socialize with a variety of sensational activities and entertainment to suit your mood.
There are nightly variety acts on the ships’ main stages, including the typical song and dance revues, acrobats, aerialists, and stand-up comedy. Or, take center stage yourself in a poolside belly-flop contest, passenger talent show and the Newlywed/Not-So-Newlywed game.
The pool, atrium and the ultra-popular piano bars feature some quieter music for those who just want to lay back and enjoy some soothing sounds. Access your lucky streak at the casinos… Princess’ are very large and well-laid out. Enter a slot, Texas Hold’Em or Blackjack tournament, play for the MegaCash jackpot or roll the dice…all with Vegas-style excitement.
Ah… the food. A sumptuous variety of dining options guarantee something to match whatever your culinary mood might be. Princess offers vacationers the choice of a fixed seating time with their traditional dining, or complete flexibility with their anytime dining (not available on all ships).
Delicious breakfast and midnight buffets, casual fare and creatively-prepared signature dishes are all available in gluttonous bounty. Or simply choose our personal feast of choice…Princess’ amazing homemade Italian pizza, enjoyed while lounging by the sparkling pool. For an additional but reasonable fee, passengers can sample one of several specialty restaurants on board, from authentic Italian cuisine to sophisticated steak and premium seafood.
No two people ever want to engage in the same activities, try the same foods, or visit the same attractions. On a cruise ship, there is an endless variety of amenities to suit every passenger. From intellectual lectures to corny games to elegant casinos, there are activities to match every interest. Diners can sample gourmet dishes or opt for classic, comfortable favorites.
With most itineraries visiting different ports of call, different passengers may choose to enjoy completely different destinations. For passengers who aren't certain what they'd enjoy, cruise ships offer a safe and convenient environment for experimentation.
Cruising with kids
A terrific choice for multi-generational families, Princess Cruise Line prides itself on offering exciting activities in the Youth Center and Teen Lounges. Unlike some other cruise ship youth programs, Princess’ are extensive, yet subtle enough to ensure that the adult experience onboard isn’t lost.
Princess Cruise Line offers a quality mainstream cruise experience that is perfect for a romantic or family getaway. With a nice balance of tradition and innovation, excitement and relaxation, the Princess experience will make you feel like royalty. Whether you want to experience the technicolor of the Carribbean, the breathtaking wilderness of Alaska or the intoxicating beauty of the Far East, Princess will ensure that your vacation is a memorable one.
