Princess Cruises Offers
From its inception 50 years ago, Princess Cruises, original home of the TV series The Love Boat, has been instrumental in creating the relaxed, casual atmosphere that typifies holidays afloat. Californian modern in the mainstream, sedate but not staid, a Princess cruise is the essence of big-ship cruising: warm, inviting, and comfortable. Often trendsetters in facilities and amenities, Princess Cruises’ ships have a thoroughbred environment, nothing too flashy or exaggerated – where everyone can feel at home whether they’re in a lavish Grand Suite or a more modest inside cabin. New ships in the fleet represent more of an evolution than a revolution, ensuring the company’s loyal guests have the consistency they seek while all the time keeping the fleet fresh and exciting. This cruise line embraces innovations and interprets them to create an essence that is unmistakably Princess.
A defining quality of Princess Cruises is its cuisine. The entire fleet has been inducted into the prestigious Chaîne des Rôtisseurs gastronomic society. Fans of Italian cuisine are in for a treat as there is an underlying nod to that country’s impeccable cuisine, nowhere more so than in the signature Sabatini’s. The company was also one of the first to introduce ‘Personal Choice Dining’ – a flexible dining room option that has been well received, particularly by British guests. Renowned for creating the first-ever ‘chef’s table’ at sea, Princess Cruises has enhanced this concept that includes champagne in the galley followed by a multi-course meal accompanied by a selection of wines in a private dining area within the main restaurants. New for 2015, on all ships, is ‘Chocolate Journeys’, a range of goodies from master chocolatier Norman Love, including chocolate desserts, demonstrations, drinks, tastings – and even spa treatments.
