06 Dec 5 Reasons to Take a Caribbean Cruise With Princess
There’s No Better Way to Truly Experience the Laid-Back Caribbean Than with Princess Cruises
1. Onboard Entertainment
Dazzling stage sets, performers from around the globe, modern hits and timeless classics come together on board to create lavish production shows — like Fiera and BRAVO — that you can only see in the state-of-the-art Princess theaters!
World-Class Magicians & Illusionists
Become mesmerized by renowned illusionists and magicians who will astonish you with their slight-of-hand tricks and mind-blowing acts that will have you shaking your head in disbelief.
Top Headliner Comedians
Grab a seat, order a cocktail and join fellow guests for some sidesplitting humor from top headliner comedians that have appeared on Comedy Central and late night television.
Live Music Abounds
Catch reggae, Top-40 and even mariachi music on deck poolside. Tap your toes to cover bands, torch singers, and even karaoke in the night clubs. You might even catch a string quartet in the Piazza or a sing-along at the piano bar.
2. “Best Shore Excursions”
— Cruise Critic
Maximize your exploration time and minimize the hassle by booking your shore excursions through Princess Cruises. Guaranteed Return to Ship is their promise that the ship will wait if your tour runs late.
Relax on Princess’ own private island for the day, Princess Cays®
Located on the tiny Bahamian island of Eleuthera, Princess Cays is a secluded island playground, reserved just for Princess guests. Do some shopping, sample island fare and exotic cocktails, swim the crystal-clear waters or just soak up the warm Caribbean sun and watch the kids play on their own pirate’s galleon. For a special treat, reserve a pastel-colored cabana where you can enjoy authentic cuisine, cocktails and some serious “me” time.
Sail on a multimillion-dollar yacht in St. Maarten
Take advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be Dennis Conner for the day and race America’s cup yachts in the turquoise blue waters and brisk trade winds of the Caribbean Sea. Grind a winch, trim a sail or punch a stopwatch as you compete against other crews in “the most exclusive sporting event in the world,” followed by a victory celebration and some post-race rum punch.
Swim with wild sea turtles in a protected bay in Barbados
Board a luxury catamaran and indulge in a sumptuous complimentary buffet lunch and open bar, then slip into the refreshing tropical waters of Turtle Beach—a favorite nesting spot for the area’s wild sea turtles—and swim among these magnificent sea creatures in their native habitat. If you are lucky, you may even glimpse a hatchling!
3. Exclusive Discovery at Sea Experience
Princess Cruises and DiscoveryTM have teamed up to create new memorable vacation experiences for the whole family to enjoy. Bringing the best of Discovery onboard guests can let their imaginations set sail with a variety of activities including Stargazing, exclusive Discovery & Animal Planet Shore Excursions, Shark Week, and more. Further enhancing the Discovery at Sea experience, our ships will feature a lineup of limited-time-only merchandise, offering guests a chance to bring home branded keepsake.
4. The Princess Luxury Bed
No matter where you dream of sailing, a restful night’s sleep makes the voyage even more rewarding. Princess Cruises is committed to ensuring guests that they will come back from their vacation feeling refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated.
That’s why they’ve collaborated with a leading expert in the science of sleep to develop the new Princess Luxury Bed, rolling out over 44,000 beds to every stateroom across the fleet for the most comfortable night of sleep at sea.
5. The Food
Dining on board a Princess cruise ship is a joyful celebration in the truest sense with every dish “designed for fresh” and crafted to exceed even the most discerning appetites. From hand-tossed pizza to dazzling multi-course gourmet dinners, you’ll find enticing food and dining options throughout the day, as lovingly prepared as a home cooked meal.
Guests can experience exquisitely crafted cuisine designed by Chef Stone, named Chef of the Year in Los Angeles’ Eater Awards, with “Crafted by Curtis” dishes in the main dining room, plus an exquisite six-course fine dining experience at SHARE, the newest specialty restaurant onboard select ships.
Learn to cook like a local in Cozumel
Discover the secrets of preparing authentic Mexican cuisine from a prestigious local chef, then embrace the region’s festive culture by enjoying your very own dish creations accompanied by Mexican wines and National Open Bar—including include cocktails mixed with mezcal, tequila, rum, brandy, vodka, and beer. After a mouth-watering lunch, unwind at Playa Mia Grand Beach Park®, one of the largest and most popular beaches in Cozumel.
