Guests on Princess Cruises

What is the Princess Captain's Circle?

Beloved by families, couples and solo cruisers, Princess Cruises offers spectacular itineraries to a variety of destinations, from North America to the Mediterranean, Australasia and beyond. Boasting 17 ships within their fleet, including Sun Princess that set sail in 2024 and Star Princess, which is setting sail in 2025, Princess Cruises is an innovative and modern cruise line.

Similarly to a range of other cruise lines, Princess Cruises has a loyalty programme that includes a variety of membership benefits. Known as the Princess Captain’s Circle, if you opt to join the club, you’ll start to accumulate points after your very first cruise. In this guide, we’ll take you through the different membership tiers, benefits and other useful information.

What are the Different Levels on Princess Cruises?

There are four different membership levels in Princess Cruises’ Captain’s Circle, starting with Gold that includes a range of introductory rewards and Elite at the top of the tiers, featuring a variety of premium perks.

Membership tier How many cruises/nights required to reach tier
Gold After your first Princess Cruises’ getaway
Ruby After 3 cruises or 30 cruise days
Platinum After 5 cruises or 50 cruise days
Elite After 15 cruises or 150 cruise days

So, the longer you stay onboard/the more cruises you book onboard Princess Cruises, the higher up the membership tiers you climb. When you book a suite or you pay for a solo occupancy fare, you’ll also benefit from two cruise credits - instead of the one that you’d usually receive. 

You'll be automatically enrolled in the loyalty programme after your first cruise; unless you're a EEA (European Economic Area) resident- then you're required to enrol in the programme by registering for a 'My Princess' account.

How do I find my Princess Captain's Circle number? To find your Princess Captain’s Circle number, you need to sign into your ‘My Princess’ account online. You’ll then be able to see your membership tier and the perks that come with it.

All members of the Princess Captain’s Circle will have priority access to new itineraries before they go on general sale - a great perk for those interested in booking a future cruise. And whilst many cruise line’s loyalty programmes are only for guests aged 18+, Princess Cruises’ Captain’s Circle benefits are also available to kids and teens sailing with the cruise line.
