There’s more to cruises than meets the eye. Unique destinations, local-inspired experiences, and new onboard technology continue to reinvent what it means to see the world by cruise ship. Look no further than Princess Cruises’ epic line-up of journeys for 2019!

1. Scandinavia & Russia 11-Day Cruise

Fearless culture explorers and history buffs should set sail on the Regal Princess™ for an 11-day exploration of Eastern Europe’s most iconic hubs. With endless opportunities to dive deep into the authentic local experience, travellers will make the most of every destination.

Soak up a Russian ballet in St. Petersburg, the Nobel Prize Museum in Stockholm, Norway’s Åsafossen falls, and Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin. With only 3 days at sea, Princess Cruises’ expedition through Denmark, Scandinavia, and Russia offers one of the best ways to see it all.

2. Mediterranean and Adriatic 7-Day Cruise

Discerning foodies should give the Mediterranean a whirl with a 7-day sail to Athens, Montenegro, Sicily, Barcelona, and more on the Emerald Princess™. Enjoy exhilarating gastronomic experiences at every port rivalled only by the award-winning cuisine and wine collection on board!

Stop in Santorini to sip on local wines and master Greek cuisine with a resident chef. Find your home away from home in Kotor, Montenegro, where you can select fresh ingredients from a local marketplace and cook them to perfection with a welcoming host. Sampling the best of the Mediterranean basin is easy with Bon Appetit shore excursions, exclusive to Princess Cruises.

3. Panama Canal, Costa Rica, and Caribbean 10-Day Cruise

Sunseekers, beach lovers, and bona fide cruise addicts get more out of their Caribbean cruise on the epic journey through Central America and the Caribbean Sea on the Caribbean Princess™.  If you have an insatiable craving to see the world (at least the tropical parts), this dreamy journey to Jamaica, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, and the Cayman Islands has many treats in store.

The onboard experience on the Caribbean Princess™ is utterly seamless, thanks to Princess Cruises’ new MedallionClass ™. Passengers receive a complimentary wearable quarter-sized OceanMedallion ™, which functions as both a stateroom key and access to innovative ship features like drink service anywhere, hassle-free check-in, and interactive navigation.

4. Voyage of the Glaciers 7-Day Alaska Cruise

Find rejuvenation in the great outdoors on this 7-day meander through beautiful Alaska on Royal Princess™. Travellers seeking a relaxing oasis away from it all find themselves heading north to be utterly refreshed. Make your way from Alaska’s Anchorage to Vancouver, pausing along the way to bask in the crisp air and awe-inspiring landscapes.

Your dates with Mother Nature, with experiences like Cook My Catch and North to Alaska, are perfectly complemented with relaxing ship features. Enjoy the state-of-the-art Princess Luxury Bed, heavenly treatments in the award-winning Lotus Spa, and healthy fitness mini-retreats on deck like yoga, tai chi, and Zumba programs.

5. Mexican Riviera 7-Day Cruise

Action packed and the epitome of fun for families, first-time cruisers, and outgoing groups, this week-long getaway through Los Angeles, Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta on Royal Princess™ offers just the right balance between onboard entertainment and exciting destinations.

Get your fill of thrills with ziplining and four-wheeling, explore a colourful underwater kingdom with a day of snorkelling, or stroll the boardwalk shops for one-of-a-kind finds. Of course, there’s plenty of action and nightlife on deck: from a Vegas-style casino to dance clubs to movies under the stars, all facilitated seamlessly with MedallionClass ™.

6. New Zealand 13-Day Cruise

Canadian globe-trotters flock to New Zealand for an abundance of reasons, but no matter what draws you to the gorgeous country, the Majestic Princess™ will take you there in style. Drop anchor around the island to pub hop and tour breweries, relive scenes of Lord of the Rings films, admire Tamaki Maori Village, and explore the glow worm caves of Bay of Islands. Make the most of your time on the flipside of the globe by dovetailing your cruise with an immersive tour of Sydney, Australia.
