The Celebration Never Stops

From birthdays to anniversaries, holidays and more, Princess has every detail covered.
By Margarita Hirapetian

Nothing brings people together quite like a reason to celebrate. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, wedding, or even holidays like Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s, the fun is exponentially higher aboard a cruise ship, and Princess covers every detail of your celebratory vision like no one else. Your only task is to let loose and enjoy every moment.

What’s the Special Occasion?

If you’ve never celebrated a special occasion on the high seas, put it on your bucket list immediately, and get ready to cross it off. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, vow renewals, honeymoons, and more take on a new sheen on luxurious cruise ships that leave nothing to chance. Aboard Princess, the newly launched Princess Celebration Group Program will see to it that you have the time of your life with customized amenities, exclusive fares and more. Romance is always in the air, and if you want to get married inside the onboard chapel or have the captain take the reins, no one will stop you.

‘Tis (Always) the Season

Christmas at home or Christmas at sea? Consider it time to shake things up and start new traditions aboard Princess with holiday cruises available for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s. The magic of Christmas can be found on every corner of the ship, and, yes, Santa makes a stop for milk and cookies, too. On Thanksgiving, leave all the cooking to Princess as you enjoy the gorgeous autumnal décor and take part in a Turkey Calling Contest. Hanukkah cruises include festive décor, themed crafts for the whole family to enjoy, special events tailored to the occasion, and, of course, a menorah-lighting ceremony. On New Year’s Eve, it’s time to pop the champagne and find a kissing partner when the clock strikes midnight. There are also cruises available for Valentine’s Day, Halloween, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Easter, Passover, and Chinese New Year.

All in the Family

It’s all about quality time with the family aboard Princess, with activities for kids, teens, young adults, and parents too. Traveling with immediate, extended, or chosen family always makes the experience more exciting and memorable, because togetherness is what makes life so special. While younger ones enjoy Discovery at SEATM Enrichment Programs, the Reef Family Splash Zone, or Animal PlanetTM Shore Excursions, older members of the group will appreciate the customizable dining options, Broadway-caliber stage shows, and fine dining at various restaurants to satisfy any palate (dietary restrictions are no problem). Activity options galore will keep everyone occupied. Scavenger hunts, basketball tournaments, and ping pong competitions will appeal to those with a competitive streak. Older kids and teens can enjoy socializing at a beach-themed lounge called The Beach House and dance the night away at parties just for them. There are also dance classes, yoga, and movie nights.

Together Forever

At its simplest definition, life is a collection of memories. You owe it to yourself to make those memories absolutely unforgettable. Celebrating on Princess with family, friends, your significant other, or your children will give you some of the best memories and experiences you can imagine. Even if you don’t have a particular occasion to memorialize, or any particular holiday you want to acknowledge, you can still come aboard with your loved ones and celebrate each other, because, when it comes down to it, life is the ultimate celebration.
