Founded in 1965, Princess Cruises rose to fame in 1977, when their ship, Pacific Princess, became the star of hit American TV show, ‘The Love Boat’. The programme introduced the idea of cruising as a holiday to the world and helped create a dramatic boom in popularity in cruising holidays and, in particular, Princess Cruises. In May 2013, the brand new Royal Princess became the flagship of Princess Cruises, and in May 2014 was joined by her new sister-ship, Regal Princess.
Today they pride themselves on their illustrious past, exceptional customer service and leading innovation in the cruise industry; from the first affordable balcony cabins to the introduction of ‘Anytime Dining.’ Some other Princess innovations over the years include the first wedding chapel hosting weddings at sea; the unique 'Movie Under the Stars' poolside movie screen; and The Sanctuary, an oasis exclusively for adults to relax in.
With 18 ships in her fleet, split into 3 size categories, today Princess has grown to become the third largest cruise line in the world. With 150 different itineraries to all seven continents, calling at more than 300 different ports around the world, and carrying 1.7 million guests each year to destinations around the globe, Princess Cruises is one of the best-known names in cruising.
Why Cruise with Princess Cruises?
Warm, welcoming service
Just unpack and let them handle the rest. The staff on board Princess cruises aim to make guests feel content and comfortable from the moment they set foot on-board.
The best itineraries
As cruise destination experts, their experience and meticulous planning have earned them "Best Itineraries" by Cruise Critic and Recommend Magazine. Guests can be sure to experience the best part of each region they visit, no matter which itinerary they choose.
A relaxed, rejuvenating retreat at sea
The primary goal is for guests to come back feeling new. Passengers will enjoy every moment on board — from the friendly stateroom steward who greets you by your name, to the comfortably elegant venues to suit any mood. Princess cruises are designed with passenger relaxation in mind.
Delicious, fresh food
Princess Cruises pride themselves on their fine gourmet cuisine because they know how important it is to their guests' cruise experience. Every sauce is made from scratch, breads and pastries are baked fresh throughout the day, and the chefs use local ingredients for dishes inspired by the region passengers are visiting.
Only on Princess can guests 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 guests can enjoy a massage, signature drinks and snacks or the spectacular sea views from their plush lounge chair.
Stretch your vacation dollars
Compared to a land vacation, a cruise with Princess provides great value for money. Passenger fares not only include the comfortable accommodations of their well-appointed stateroom, but also many of the fresh dining options, dazzling entertainment and access to a range of health and wellness facilities.
The experts love them
They've been sailing for more than 40 years, and their officers and crew are extremely familiar with the ports guests visit. But don't just take their word for it — they're continually being honoured by the industry for their carefully planned itineraries, their spectacular ships, and the way they make all of their guests feel relaxed and happy time after time.
