Princess Cruise Review | Pros and Cons
- 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.
- Cancellations fees. Make sure you check all the details of your booking before you reserve. Cancellations incur charges.
