What Sets Princess Apart

  • Immersive Exploration – Being chosen as the “Best Cruise Line Itineraries” by Cruise Critic and awarded “Best Cruise Ship Excursions” by Global Traveler Magazine is the result of Princess’ dedication to immersion and exploration. 
  • Freshly Prepared Cuisine – Food is interwoven with travel. From discovering the unique flavors of a new city to watching a dish come together, some of the best travel memories revolve around food. 
  • Rejuvenation – With cruising, your resort travels with you and offers a blend of excitement and rejuvenation, with amenities like the Sanctuary, a retreat for adults that offers al fresco massages, refreshing beverages and Serenity Stewards to attend to your needs.
  • Engaging Entertainment – First-time cruisers sometimes wonder what there will be to do on days at sea. We love the moment on board when you discover that each ship is filled with so much engaging, exciting and varied entertainment that it would take many cruises to experience it all.
