Princess Cruises
General

One of the best-known names in cruising, Princess Cruises first set sail in 1965 with a single ship cruising to Mexico. Today, the line has grown to become the third largest cruise line in the world, renowned for innovative ships, an array of onboard options, and an environment of exceptional customer service. A recognized leader in worldwide cruising, Princess carries 1.7 million guests each year to destinations around the globe ranging in length from three to 114 days, allowing them to see the world and come back new.

Princess Cruises was catapulted to stardom in 1977 when one of its ships, Pacific Princess, was cast in a starring role on a new television show called "The Love Boat." The weekly series, which introduced millions of viewers to the concept of a sea-going vacation, was an instant hit and both the company name and its "seawitch" logo have remained synonymous with cruising ever since. The show, which can still seen around the world, has been widely credited with fueling the dramatic expansion of the industry.

Island Princess is an oasis at sea. Whether you crave relaxation or exhilaration, you'll find it all with the Lotus Spa, live entertainment and gourmet dining on the menu. For a special treat, sample New Orleans-inspired cuisine at the Bayou Cafe and Steakhouse. And don't miss a drink crafted by award-winning mixologist Rob Floyd, the perfect toast to your blissful experience.

Activities

Art Gallery & Auctions

Great art, like the destinations we visit, can be awe-inspiring. Peruse our extensive art gallery, or attend an art history lecture highlighting some of the world's greatest masters.

The inviting piazza-style grand Atrium shines as the stunning centerpiece of each ship, the epicenter of luxury, excitement and fun. Stop by anytime, day or night, to find musicians, jugglers, acrobats, food carvers and a variety of other performers. Soaring multi-stories with a circular marble floor, stained-glass dome and magnificent floating staircase, the Italian-inspired Atrium is an ideal setting for relaxation, people-watching or simply having a cocktail or coffee with a friend.

The Shops of Princess

It's no surprise The Shops are awarded "Best Onboard Shopping" from Porthole magazine year after year. On board, you'll find a fabulous range of fine merchandise from brands like Swarovski, Chanel, Estee Lauder, Clinique, Lancome, Calvin Klein, Citizen and Tissot, plus local crafts, keepsakes and souvenirs.

Freshwater Pools & Hot Tubs

Take a dip in our sparkling freshwater pools and leave your everyday world behind. Unwind on a padded lounger and soak up the sun, catch up on reading, listen to music or dream of your next adventure on board or ashore. And what better way to relax and revitalize after a day exploring the world than a long soak in one of our whirling hot tubs. And don't forget, there is always a server nearby to bring you a refreshing cocktail or favorite beverage.
