A 14-time winner of Recommend Magazine’s Best Cruise Itineraries, Princess love to let guests uncover more of the world both aboard their ship and ashore.

Whichever destination you choose, you’re in for the ultimate highlight reel, packed with adventures to some of the most iconic places in the world - all while only having to unpack once!

So, while Princess’ credentials pretty much speak for themselves, we’re here to give you a little extra convincing – so here’s a taste of where you could be making your next getaway to…

Dine Your Way

Fancy yourself as a bit of a foodie? Princess Cruises’ dining options make sure your tastebuds are well and truly treated – morning, evening and night.

That’s because they believe that every mealtime, dish and bite should tell a story. And believe us, these are some juicy tales to tell. From the places they originate and the way they’re prepared, to the skilled chefs getting busy in the kitchen, every single dish spins a yarn of taste, tradition and quality.

And better yet, Princess Cruises’ Dine My Way lets you call the shots. With this handy app, booking a table when you want and dining how you want is as easy as it gets. Plus with OceanNow, you can skip the queues and save your spot. Whether you’re feeling peckish by the pool or fancy another round, your order will be brought to you, so there’s no need to move. We could get used to that!

Rooms for Royalty

Waiting to be your home away from home, the five fab room types onboard suit budgets of all sizes. You’ll even be first in line to get on and off your ship, while a feast of exclusive dining options let you sample the finest food that Princess have to offer.

Each furnished with a private bathroom and shower, stocked-up refrigerator, a flat-screen TV and bathroom amenities, take your pick from the following Princess cruise accommodation options…

Try Something New

For diversions and distractions, there’s plenty to pull you away from lounging by the pool. And while there’s nothing wrong with spending your cruise soaking up the sun, there are plenty of exciting activities you won’t want to miss out on either!

Try out the traditions of other cultures thanks to Princess’ Festivals of the World, your chance to experience the things that make heritages around the globe so special. How about Oktoberfest onboard? Or a steel pan drum lesson courtesy of the Caribbean? Or maybe you’ll learn how to make Hawaiian leis? Expect horizons to expand wherever your destination is.

Elsewhere, culinary demonstrations and wine tastings will keep foodies satisfied (and maybe a little merry), while onboard casinos, art galleries and auctions let those who enjoy the finer things in life live a little more lavishly while at sea. There’s even a selection of high-end shops here too. Expect big names like Swarovski, Chanel, Estee Lauder and Calvin Klein – perfect for bringing home something for your loved ones – or if you just fancy a few extra treats!

Princess Packages

Wherever you’re heading, every Princess cruise comes with Princess dining, accommodation and entertainment, along with their MedallionClass experience – an app-powered device that opens up a world of expansive extras, as standard.

Want to take things up a level though? Princess Plus unlocks even more: a bigger choice of drinks, single device Wi-Fi, two free desserts, two fitness classes (to burn the treats off) and more! You can also take advantage of reserved theatre seating.

How about something a little more lavish? Princess Premier gets everything from the Plus package and then some. The most premium drinks, four device Wi-Fi, two nights of speciality dining, unlimited desserts, a photo package, unlimited fitness classes and smoothies or juices. Princess Prizes, meanwhile, gives you the chance to win everything from wine tasting and spending money all the way up to free cruises and $100,000 in cash.

Ready to be entertained?

Night-time is when Princess Cruises really shines! As evening approaches, every corner of your ship buzzes with entertainment. From street performers in The Piazza to live jazz soundtracking sips on your favourite tipples, you’ll find on-deck film screenings, world-class magicians, rib-tickling comedians, live music and a whole lot more.

The Voice of the Ocean, meanwhile, brings the hugely popular TV show to the seas. That’s right, you’ll have the chance to wow the judges with your vocal talents, with mentors and coaches to help take you from off-key to on-point. Reckon you’ve got what it takes to take it to the final?

Princess’ crown jewel, though, has to be its incredible Broadway-level shows. From Fantastic Journey’s rock-concert experience complete with choreographed drones to Bravo’s blend of iconic opera classics (think “Time To Say Goodbye”) and chart-toppers from the likes of Adele, prepare to be wowed by an incredible array of shows, all in Princess’ state-of-the-art theatres.

Princess Cruises FAQs

Which Southampton cruise terminal does Princess Cruises use?

If you’re travelling from Southampton, then your cruise ship will most likely depart from the Ocean Terminal. Top tip: no public transport will take you to the Ocean Cruise terminal. Local transport will take you to the city centre – hop in a taxi once you’re there and after a short journey, you’ll find yourself at the Ocean Terminal, ready to depart.

Do Princess Cruises provide shuttle buses?

Once you’re docked in your port, Princess Cruises will provide you with a shuttle bus to take you from the dock if it’s required.

Paying for these shuttles tends to depend on the location of the dock. Generally, they’ll be free if the port is in a fairly restricted area that you can’t depart on foot. However, if the shuttle has to take you from the port to a nearby city or town, then you should expect to pay a fee – the amount generally depends on the distance you’ll be travelling on these trips.

How many formal nights on Princess Cruises are there?

The number of formal nights depends on the length of your cruise, pack your best clobber and dress to impress according to the following:

·      1-4 days: no formal evenings

·      5-6 days: 1 formal evening

·      7-13 days: 2 formal evenings

·      14-20 days: 3 formal evenings
