Princess Cruises has announced its ‘best sale ever’ with prices starting at £499 per person and a £50 low deposit available. The offer runs from December 20 to March 2 and applies to all of Princess’ 1,500 future cruises up to April 2022.
This represents the most voyages and widest range of choice ever available for a Princess sale.
In addition, for the first time, guests can choose to add a simplified onboard savings package for £35 per person per day. The package covers premium drinks, unlimited WiFi and gratuities – which is worth over £70 for guests who pay for these items in advance of their cruise, or onboard.
The all-inclusive premium drinks include cocktails, wine, beer, spirits, coffee and tea. Guests who prefer soft drinks or are under the drinking age can take advantage of the likes of fruit juices, mocktails and smoothies.
Princess Cruises is now able to offer WiFi as part of a savings package due to an increasing number of ships being upgraded to ‘MedallionNet’, which incorporates next-generation onboard technology to allow ‘fast, reliable and unlimited’ connectivity.
Included in the offers are voyages on the 3,080-guest Crown Princess, which sails roundtrip from May to November next year from Southampton to destinations such as the Mediterranean, Canary Islands and northern Europe. Also included is the 2,200-guest Island Princess, which will sail out of Southampton from June to October to northern Europe.
Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises vice president UK & Europe, said: “We’re excited to be able to give this level of choice with our best sale ever. Guests can make the most of both the best fare and best value.
“And we’re confident our onboard savings package will offer even more appeal. Just imagine relaxing with an all-inclusive cocktail on the top deck of one of our stunning ships while staying connected with friends and family back home via our fast, reliable and unlimited WiFi.”
