1. Enchanted Princess®

Awarded “Great for Groups” by Good Housekeeping’s Family Travel Awards, Enchanted Princess® is one of the newest members of the Princess® fleet. Built in 2021, this MedallionClass® ship explores the Mediterranean and the Caribbean and features transatlantic crossings too.

The real jewel of Enchanted Princess® can be found in its Sky Suites. There are two Sky Suites onboard, each boasting over 1,873 square feet of space, including the largest balconies at sea. On each balcony, you’ll find perks like a dining table, a day bed, loungers, and an exterior bar. Each Sky Suite can accommodate up to five guests, so bring the whole family or a group of friends and enjoy a 270-degree view throughout your cruise – all from the comfort and privacy of your suite.

Don’t miss out on the world-class dining available during your voyage. Guests sailing onboard Enchanted Princess® can reserve a table at Bistro Sur La Mer for elevated French cuisine tastefully created by Emmanuel Renault, a 3-Michelin Star chef. Tantalize your tastebuds with favorite dishes like the beef filet mignon and delicious seafood plates.

2. Discovery Princess®

3. Royal Princess®

Known for its voyages in the Southern Hemisphere with stops in Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand, and the South Pacific, Royal Princess® brings you the best in must-see destinations while providing an unparalleled onboard experience for the whole family.

As you sail to exciting destinations, start your day with a wander through the Piazza, which takes its inspiration from the Old World feel of a European square. Grab a coffee here before shopping in one of the nearby boutiques, or sit down with a glass of wine while being treated to a live performance.

With nine bars and showrooms, there's no shortage of cocktails and live entertainment to be enjoyed on a Princess cruise. At the main theater, you’ll be whisked away to a magical experience with Broadway-level productions, complete with impressive stage sets and special effects. Try your luck with onboard game shows like Deal or No Deal, or try to impress the judges and the audience at The Voice of the Ocean, an at-sea singing competition!

4. Regal Princess®

With itineraries to the Western Caribbean, Mexico, the British Isles, and Western Europe, there’s plenty of the world to see on a Regal Princess® cruise.

As you travel between ports, take a stroll along the SeaWalk, a 60-foot-long covered path, for views of the sea and the ship. Take a dip in the Fountain Pool and Plunge freshwater pools or feel the heat with one of eight hot tubs onboard.

Food & Wine Magazine named Princess the “Best Cruises for Food Lovers” and it’s easy to see why. It’s a foodie lover’s dream, with a variety of restaurant options, from grab-and-go options to formal sit-down meals. For lunch, grab a bite to eat at casual fare options like Prego Pizzeria or Trident Grill. Elevate your evening with a specialty restaurant like the crowd-pleasing Crown Grill for steak and seafood or immerse yourself in a one-of-a-kind dining experience at Chef's Table Lumiere.

After dinner, take the family to a fun evening at Movies Under the Stars®. Head to the open-air poolside venue, grab some popcorn and stretch out on one of the lounge chairs while enjoying a popular feature film.

5. Sky Princess®

Part of the Royal-class ships, Sky Princess® is one of the largest ships in the fleet, alongside Enchanted Princess®. This ship showcases a sleek, contemporary design and plenty of entertainment options. With sailings to Europe, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, and the east coast of Canada and the United States, you’ve got your pick of amazing itineraries to choose from.

There’s something for everyone onboard a Princess cruise – including kids and teens – and Sky Princess® is no exception. Kids and teens have a special place that’s just for them with Camp Discovery™ Youth and Teen Center.

Kids and teens are grouped by age: the Treehouse is for ages 3 to 7, the Lodge is for ages 8 to 12, and the Beach House is for ages 13 to 17. Whether they’re participating in a scavenger hunt, showing off their moves at a dance party, or playing the latest video game with new friends, there’s plenty for them to love at Camp Discovery™ Youth and Teen Center.
