7 great reasons to cruise with Princess Cruise

1. Warm, welcoming service
Just unpack and let us handle the rest. That's our goal as The Consummate Host® — to make you feel content and comfortable starting the minute you set foot onboard.

2. The best itineraries

As cruise destination experts, our experience and meticulous planning have earned us "Best Cruise Line Itineraries" for seven years running in a survey of travel agents for Recommend magazine. Cruise with us and you can be sure to experience the best of each region you visit, no matter which of our over 100 itineraries to more than 300 ports you choose.

3. A relaxed, rejuvenating retreat at sea

Our primary goal is for you to escape completely®. That's why you'll find every detail — from the friendly stateroom steward who greets you by name to the comfortably elegant venues that range from lively to intimate — is designed with your relaxation in mind.


4. Delicious, fresh food

We take dining seriously because we know how important it is to your cruise experience. Every sauce is made from scratch, breads and pastries are baked fresh throughout the day, and our chefs use local products to create dishes inspired by the region you're visiting.

5. Exclusive amenities

Only on Princess can you enjoy evenings spent watching Movies Under the Stars®, with complimentary blankets and popcorn. Meet friends for a small bite, wine by the glass and enjoy street performer-style entertainment in the Piazza. Or spend a few hours of tranquility in The Sanctuary — a retreat just for adults where you can enjoy a massage, signature drinks and snacks or the spectacular sea views from your plush lounge chair.

6. Stretch your vacation dollars

Compared to a land vacation, a cruise with Princess provides a great value for your vacation dollars. Your fare not only includes the comfortable accommodations of your well-appointed stateroom, but also many of our fresh dining options, dazzling entertainment and access to our health and wellness facilities.


7. The experts love us

We've been sailing for more than 40 years, and our officers and crew are intimately familiar with the ports you'll visit. But don't just take our word for it — we're continually being honored by the industry for our carefully planned itineraries, our spectacular ships, and the way we make everyone, of every age, feel relaxed and happy when they're with us.
