Why Princess Cruises?
With so many cruise lines available it can sometimes be difficult to decide which one is for you. So why choose Princess Cruises?
Recommend Magazine bestowed the title of “Best Cruise Line Itineraries” upon Princess Cruises, which is unsurprising considering the vast array of shops, amenities and facilities available to passengers. Princess Cruises’ signature outdoor screens are up to 300 feet wide and broadcast Hollywood blockbusters under the stars along with complimentary popcorn and other delicious treats for guests to enjoy! Onboard options for entertainment are almost inexhaustible with fabulous amenities ranging from computerized golf-centers to virtual-reality centers!
As Princess Cruise ships make grand entrances into port, so too can passengers make an entrance aboard these magnificent vessels. Selected ships contain an area aptly called ‘The Piazza’ which, of course, draws inspiration from the gloriously cultured Italy. This sophisticated, welcoming space in the atrium of the ship is full of grandeur and style. Via the glass elevators in these decadent piazzas, guests can reach other parts of the ship such as the various boutiques, duty-free stores, international cafés and wine bars.
Additionally, Princess Cruises is famed for its vast array of dining options. Passengers can look forward to tasting the delectable cuisine in up to 9 different gourmet restaurants onboard. Dining times are fixed with the choice of early (6pm) or late (8pm) sittings and guests still have the option to book at other times at the specialty restaurants if that is their wish.
The Sanctuary is an area designated exclusively to adults and is designed for the sole function of total relaxation. The peaceful décor and calm atmosphere combine to create a haven of wellbeing for passengers looking to revitalize. The fully reclining deck chairs (and built in MP3s) foster a state of serenity; you could always treat yourself or a loved-one to a massage in one of the private cabanas on offer while taking advantage of the fruit smoothies, juices and healthy snacks available.
