Why we love this cruise line

PRINCESS SHIPS

One of the world’s premier cruise lines for over four decades.

4

Guests are only permitted to bring one bottle of only champagne or wine per adult of drinking age onboard. Bottles may be no larger than 750ml. If consumed in your stateroom, a corkage fee will not apply, however a corkage fee of $15.00 will apply if consumed elsewhere. Additional bottles of wine or champagne will each incur a $15.00 corkage fee no matter where they’re consumed.

Prior to embarkation all guests’ luggage will be scanned and all alcohol that breaches Princess Cruises’ policies will be disposed of. All confiscated alcohol will not be refunded, nor will guests be eligible for compensation. Alcohol purchased either at a port of call or at one of the onboard shops will be stored safely onboard until the last day of the cruise, when it will be delivered to guests’ staterooms.

The standard minimum age for drinking is 21, however for all Mediterranean itineraries it is lowered to 18. Age restrictions are taken seriously by staff and guests may be required to show proof of age if a member of crew thinks they look underage. Since guests have to be 21 years or older to enter the casino, it follows that guests must also be at least 21 to purchase and consume alcoholic drinks in the casino.

Those under the age of 21 are required to travel with someone over the age of 21 who will take full responsibility of them for the duration of the cruise. For family groups booking more than one stateroom, if children are to stay in a stateroom by themselves, at least one child must be 16 years of age or over, so long as they are travelling with at least one parent or a legal guardian. Larger student and youth groups also must adhere to this age requirement. All guests who have minors under their supervision must ensure that those under their care adhere to all of Princess Cruises’ policies.  

Younger children who are not toilet trained or have to wear diapers or swim diapers will not be permitted in the pools, saunas and hot tubs so long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children under the age of 13 must be under supervision of a parent or guardian to be allowed into evening show lounges. To enter the disco, guests must be 18 years of age and older, though discos just for younger guests are held through the ship’s youth and teen centers. To enter the casino, guests must be 21 years of age or older.

For children travelling with one parent or with neither parent, special documentation in the form of a permission slip may be required for certain countries. Requirements can be checked with immigration offices before you start your cruise.

Parental supervision is required for children under the age of 3 going to the Youth Center; staff are not permitted to give children medication, change their diapers, bottle-feed them or provide them with food. Group babysitting is available in the Youth Center from 10pm-1am for children ages 3-12 at a rate of $5.00 per child per hour. Private babysitting in staterooms is not available.

For land excursions in Alaska, if you are travelling in a motor vehicle, the US Department of Transportation stipulates that children under 16 must be secured in the vehicle with an approved device, whilst children under the age of 4 must be secured using an approved child safety device. It is your responsibility to ensure you have appropriate devise for securing your children for some excursions in Alaska, including tours into Denali National Park. 

There are two types of evening wear: Smart Casual and Formal. On Formal evenings, men should wear pants and open-neck shirts, while women should wear skirts or dresses, slacks and sweaters.

There are several clearly marked designated smoking areas throughout each ship. These can usually be found in the casino, dance club, cigar lounge and a number of outdoor locations. Guests must dispose of cigarettes, cigars and pipes appropriately and not throw them overboard.

Smoking is prohibited in all guest staterooms and on all balconies. Anyone found to have violated this policy will have a fine of $250.00 billed to their account.

Electronic cigarettes are allowed in all areas of the ship except in dining areas and in the Princess Theater. If a fellow guest requests that you stop smoking, despite understanding the difference between real cigarettes and electronic cigarettes, the guest will have to stop smoking as this is an inconvenience to a fellow passenger.

The tipping process is relatively simple: a gratuity charge of $11.50 ($12.50 for those in suites and mini-suites) will be added to your shipboard account every day of your cruise to reflect the service given by the ship’s staff. Additionally, when you purchase wine in a restaurant or drinks in a bar, a 15% gratuity is added to your account. Gratuities are shared among all staff except casino and Lotus Spa staff, as these services are not used by all guests.

Round-the-clock Wi-fi is available on all Princess ships in all staterooms and many public areas throughout each ship. Laptops and handheld devices will connect to the ship’s wireless system. As regards to pricings, consult the ship’s Internet Café Manager for pricing details and other general queries.
