Mastering the traditional cruise experience since its first cruise in 1965, Princess Cruises offer something special. With a real focus on dining and entertainment, Princess Cruises hosts 1.7 million guests each year on one of 18 spectacular liners. Extensive routes in Europe, the Americas, the Caribbean and Asia, means Princess Cruises operates a genuinely global service, catering for couples and families alike.
Itineraries range from one night through to 100+ day world cruises, with the majority of trips lasting between one and three weeks. On all routes guests can choose from one of five price tiers, beginning with the Interior range and moving all the way up to the prestigious Suite class. One tier that catches the eye is the Mini-Suite Stateroom. Providing a full-length bathtub and separate spacious living area, the Mini-Suite is much bigger than a standard Balcony Cabin, though won't set guests back as much as a full Suite.
Princess Cruises has proudly led the industry in one particular on-board luxury - the private balcony. Balconies are available from the third tier onwards, allowing guests to enjoy an extra service courtesy of Princess Cruises for an additional fee, Ultimate Balcony Dining. The dinner package consists of a four-course Champagne meal with superior individual elements compared to anywhere else on board, all served by a private waiter.
But whatever the budget, travelling in style and comfort is a reality for everyone on a Princess Cruise. Ships such as the Emerald Princess, launched in 2007, provide a quality holiday experience without being fussy. The Emerald Princess allows guests to relax in a casual atmosphere, while still enjoying all the trappings of quality.
Each ship plays host to 'Movies Under the Stars', a charming feature which sees the Calypso pool double as an open air cinema, showing both new and classic films day and night. Understanding that guests might prefer some peace and quiet at times, each ship comes with adult-only areas such as The Sanctuary, which is located above the Lotus Spa. The Sanctuary provides hot-tubs, padded loungers and food service to seats.
Princess Cruises regularly attracts world-class magicians, comedians and other performers to entertain guests on many of its routes. For kids there are clubs, sports and competitions, as well as the renowned 'Rock the Boat Party', replete with mocktails and awards for friends to celebrate on board.
This is a line renowned for its iconic routes, so while passengers make the most of what's on-board, they should consult the packed program of excursions for every port of call. Variety is the spice of life and is celebrated by Princess Cruises. European routes pass through locations such as the Norwegian Fjords and Greek Isles, Asian routes by Mount Fuji and Ho Chi Minh City and American routes touch both the Pacific and Atlantic Coasts.
Apart from this depth and breadth of location, Princess Cruises' reputation stands peerless along certain routes such as its Alaska and Panama Canal itineraries. A classic example is the one-way 'Ocean to Ocean' edition. Guests embark in Florida to cruise to Colombia, then through the lush forests either side of the canal in Central America and, finally, up past Mexico to finish in San Pedro, California.
For those who wish to explore cities by day as well take in the ocean air, Princess Cruises will wow passengers with routes such as their '14-day Mediterranean Adventurer', which starts in London and takes guests on tours around such cultural jewels of the continent, like Barcelona, Rome, Florence and Marseille. Princess Cruises offers classic sailing, with a friendly atmosphere and a wealth of exciting adventures, on or off their impressive ships.
