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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
