The Princess Experience

A holiday should be about more than just getting away. You should return rejuvenated and renewed – with new memories, new perspectives, possibly even new friends.

At least that’s how Princess sees it. Make each port your own and experience it the way you always imagined – discovering best-kept secrets and meeting locals. Join Princess on a voyage from Australia, New Zealand or Asia, and remember what it means to expand your own horizons and come back new.

They make it all seem so easy – the chefs and waitstaff on your Princess Cruises ship. The flavours are so fresh, the presentations so creative and effortless. And the most amazing part is that these multi-course dinners change every day of your voyage.


Endless entertainment ranges from street performers in the Piazza and headliner comedians featured on Comedy Central, to renowned illusionists and Princess Pop Star karaoke. Bars and lounges provide fine cocktails and a great place to enjoy cool jazz and Top 40 tunes.


Each day, you’ll have endless possibilities — learn about your next port in an engaging presentation, get a manicure, go shopping, head to a tasting of New Zealand wines, then decompress in the Lotus Spa or work out in the state-of-the-art fitness centre.

Travel for me is about conversations and connections. There’s nothing like setting foot in a new land and meeting people a world apart. From talking to North Sea fishermen in Norway’s Lofoten Islands to breakfast chat at a B&B in my own back yard, there’s always a story to share and a tale to tell.
