Offering affordable, luxury voyages, perfect for first-time cruisers and experienced travellers alike, Princess Cruises are loved for their relaxed atmosphere, fantastic food and impeccable standards. One of the largest cruise lines at sea and with itineraries sailing to all 7 continents, a Princess Cruises holiday offers you the opportunity to explore more ports of call with an extensive variety of shore excursions. Back onboard and the elegant fleet of ships blend an impeccable level of service together with an informal and cosmopolitan ambience.

Princess Cruises Health Protocols

Before the cruise embarks, the situation at the intended ports of call will be monitored to make sure that they are safe to visit, while those who have flu-like symptoms, or who has been in contact with someone who has or is suspected to have COVID-19 will not be allowed to board.

When preparing for boarding, all guests and crew will have to go undergo health screening, including temperature checks. At embarkation terminals, frequently touched points will be continuously sanitised, and there will be sanitising- and fogging if possible- after each embarkation and debarkation.

The cruise line's already rigorous cleaning will be further enhanced with frequent cleaning of surfaces that are often touched such as chairs and fitness equipment. There will also be hand sanitiser throughout the ship, and in crew areas, to make hand washing easier.

In addition, with medical crew onboard who will be trained specially to deal with COVID-19, anyone who develops symptoms during their cruise will receive free screening and treatment.

Family Staterooms

With Princess Cruises you have plenty of choice when it comes to family-friendly staterooms, ranging from luxury to value options. For great value there are the three and four berth inside and outside staterooms, though you have to remember these cabins consist of pull down beds, meaning a twin bed option is available but a king size configuration is not. The balcony cabins usually consist of a king/twin bed option and a double sofa bed. This is usually suitable for adults, though sometimes cabins can involve pullman beds so it is always worth double checking with your cruise specialist at the time of booking.

You can also choose from a variety of interconnecting cabins which are usually two cabins of the same grade, so inside to inside or balcony to balcony. To book interconnecting cabins an adult is required to be booked into each stateroom and they are often booked up very quickly during school holiday periods.

Princess Cruises offer several cruises from Southampton to the Mediterranean and Baltic so that guests can enjoy a Princess cruise without the need to fly. Other exciting destinations visited by Princess Cruises include Alaska, North America, Caribbean and Asia. Fly Cruises are available from a range of airports including Glasgow, Sheffield, Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham.

Crown Princess, Island Princess, and Regal Princess will offer cruises around the UK, to North Europe and Scandinavia, the Mediterranean, and the Canary Islands. The rest of the fleet will be offering itineraries in Asia, the Caribbean, and North America as well.

Explore Japan on one of Diamond Princess’ exciting Asian itineraries, on which you could discover a Miso Brewery in Gamagori, taste delicious ramen noodles in Wakayama, or take in UNESCO world heritage site, Himeji Castle. Alternatively you could see more of the UK’s own beauty onboard Crown Princess, Sea Princess, or Pacific Princess.

With so much to do onboard a Princess Cruises’ ship, you’ll never have to worry about being bored. Spend your free time lounging about, refreshing in the pool or try something a little more active. No matter your tastes and interests, there’s fun to be had onboard for every guest.

    Ocean Medallion

    Princess Cruises presents its innovative new onboard technology: the Ocean Medallion. This is a small, wearable gadget that guests will reap all kinds of benefits from.

    The Ocean Medallion devices weigh only 1.8 ounces, and are about the size of a ten pence piece - making them convenient and discreet. They can either be carried in a pocket or wallet, or worn in the form of a bracelet or necklace.

    How does it work?

    The Ocean Medallion contains sensors which collect a range of data from guests. This data is safely stored on a digital platform known as the Ocean Compass. You can access your information stored in the Ocean Compass cloud in the following ways:

    • Interactive screens found throughout the ship
    • Your in-cabin or in-suite television
    • The Ocean Medallion mobile app.

    What are the advantages?

    The technology has a plethora of uses which many guests will find helpful. Some of our favourites include:

    • Simple and quick embarkation and disembarkation - by uploading your documentation ahead of time, it is possible for the medallion to register your access on and off the ship.
    • Ordering food, drinks, and more to wherever you are on the ship - whether you want to pre-order drinks before a show, or need some extra sunscreen by the pool, the device makes it simple to get what you want, when you want.
    • Fast entry to your statement - the Ocean Medallion acts as a key for your accommodation, replacing key cards.
    • Make dining requests - you can enter information regarding allergies, wine preferences, and more before visiting the restaurants.
