Why cruise with Princess Cruises?
Princess Cruises are a multi award-winning company with one of the largest fleets of ships in the world. They are a joint American/British company who have been operating for forty years. Their success can largely be put down to the consistently high level of customer service on board.
The array of activities on offer on a Princess cruise is predictably lavish. Passengers are treated very much as individuals and there are many interesting things to get to grips with. Sports enthusiasts can hit the jogging track, basketball court or 9 hole putting green, they can even try scuba diving. Indulgent spa and massage treatments are available as are lectures, cooking demonstrations and even outdoor film screenings under the stars with complimentary popcorn! Swimming pools, sauna, Jacuzzi and the usual poolside activities are well represented, helping to make your time on board fun and relaxing in equal measure.
Princess Cruises offer fine food prepared with fresh produce from the destinations you visit en route as well as menus reflecting international and western tastes. Fresh breads and pastries are baked daily in the kitchens and from breakfast through to dinner, the emphasis is on quality, flexibility and choice. Choose the elegance and formality of fine dining with gourmet menus, black tie and ball gowns, or a casual snack in the burger bar with the children, it is up to you. Each Princess ship offers speciality restaurants, so if you want authentic Italian or a big juicy T-bone in the steakhouse, you can take your pick.
Nightlife on board a Princess cruise can be as languid or lively as you like. There are plenty of lounges and bars in which to have a drink anytime, all ships have a casino and theatres where you can take in a vibrant show or cabaret. Or why not put on your dancing shoes and boogie all night to live bands?
All staterooms on Princess Cruise lines offer well-appointed accommodation with en-suite facilities. Standards are high and the integral opulence and luxury offers great value.
Where do Princess Cruises go?

Princess travels to more destinations than any other cruise line: from the icy majesty of Alaska, to the tropical paradise of the Caribbean, Hawaii, Tahiti and the South Pacific. Further afield destinations such as Asia, India and Africa all feature on Princess Itineraries as do Australia, New Zealand, the Panama Canal, Mexico, South America, Canada and New England. If you cannot decide exactly where to go, why not visit everywhere on a Princess world cruise that drops anchor at around forty fascinating destinations.
