Princess Cruise Review | Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Princess Cruises Personaliser: Use the online personaliser to check-in online and book activities even before you've left land.
  • Highest quality cuisine: Early 2016 Australian chef Curtis Stone teamed up with Princess Cruises' superliner Sun Princess to open his on-board restaurant, Share. Just another reason to choose this superliner for your next sea adventure.
  • Kids’ activities. There are lots of different activities to keep kids busy (and mums and dads free) including playrooms for kids aged three through 12, and teen lounges for 13 through 17 year olds.
  • Room options for a range of budgets. Go all out with a suite complete with balcony, or have a more old-fashioned cruise experience with a budget-priced inside cabin.
  • Extra services. It’s more than just a boat. Princess Cruises offers spa services, cooking demonstrations, bingo nights, shows and live entertainment, and shore excursions to let you explore the local culture.
  • Prices are almost all-inclusive. The cost of your ticket includes accommodation, meals throughout the day, and 24-hour room service.

Cons

  • Cancellations fees. Make sure you check all the details of your booking before you reserve. Cancellations incur charges.

Princess Cruises Frequently Asked Questions

How do I make a Princess Cruise booking?

After landing on the homepage, you can search for a cruise by entering your preferred destination, dates and cruise length in the “Find a cruise” box.

Any qualifying matches should appear on the next page. When you see an option you’d like to book, simply click on “View details”. Next, you’ll be able to select what sort of cabin you’d like (and even the specific room, if you’d prefer), the number of guests you’ll be travelling with, and your dining options (including seating time and the size of the table you’d like to be seated at).
Just before your booking, you’ll have the option to sign-in if you’re registered, or you can continue as a guest. You’ll then be able to finalise your booking by entering your details and payment information.


How do I get my Princess Cruise booking confirmation and travel documents?

Once you have booked your cruise you can log in to the ‘Cruise Personaliser’ to check the details of your booking, book extra services, change details of your reservation and print your boarding pass.
Boarding passes will only will available to print after the reservation has been paid in full, all of your visa and immigration documents have been processed (if needed), and a credit card has been added to your account.


Do I need travel insurance for my Princess Cruise?

Cruises aren't always covered by standard travel insurance policies, so we'd recommend reading our guide about travel insurance for Princess cruises to make sure you're getting the right level of cover.

What forms of payment does Princess Cruise accept?

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Discover Card
  • Diners Club
  • American Express

What is the Princess Cruise cancellation policy?

Cancellation fees will be charged if you cancel your cruise depending on how far in advance you make the cancellation, and the fare paid. If you cancel 75 days or more before your cruise you will be able to receive your whole ticket price back.


How do I book Princess Cruises shore excursions?

A list of available shore excursions and each port can be accessed by clicking here and visiting the Princess Cruises site. Shore excursions can be booked in advance using the Cruise Personaliser. Alternatively, if you'd like to wait and see how the weather is, or what you feel like doing once your trip starts, excursions can be booked on board.

Benefits of booking your excursion directly with the cruise line, are that you'll have a guaranteed return to the ship in time and the company will use reputable local operators.


What's the Princess Cruises alcohol policy?

All Princess Cruises ships have bars and restaurants online that serve alcohol. Drinking age aboard all Princess Cruises ships is 21, regardless of where you ship is sailing. Bringing your own liquor and spirits on board is not allowed, and may be confiscated and discarded upon embarkation. However, passengers 21 or above are allowed to bring one bottle of wine or Champagne (750ml or less) on board with them. If you'd like to bring the bottle to the restaurant with you, a $15 corkage fee applies. There's no fee for in-room consumption.

You're free to purchase alcohol in the ports, but anything brought back on board will be kept until the end of the cruise, similar to the policy on planes when shopping at the duty-free at the airport. The same restrictions apply to any drinks purchased at the ships duty-free gift shop.
