Above all, a cruise vacation should be about relaxing - and what better way to do that than in a fully-stocked spa?
The onboard Lotus Spa features a wide range of treatments designed to send travellers to a world of relaxation and harmony. The spa operates on an "a la carte" model, where each service can be booked separately. However, passengers can also opt to schedule a full day of service for themselves if they so desire.
One treatment that every passenger should consider trying is acupuncture. Most cruises in the fleet employ trained acupuncturists who are specialists in the art of locating the body's pressure points. The system works by poking sterilised needles into these key areas, which in turn release pent up energy and reduce pain.
For something a little more traditional, how about a La Therapie HydraLift Facial? This treatment rejuvenates and refreshes the skin. There's no better way to look your best for all the pictures you're sure to be taking while onboard the ship.
Some passengers might instead be in search of a nice massage. The Lotus Spa enhances the massage with its Aroma Stone Therapy programme. By using the heat of the stones in combination with the enticing smells, this treatment relaxes the passenger while simultaneously releasing the stress and tension built up in the muscles.
The fitness centre offer a wide range of invigorating classes, including such popular options as cycling, Pilates, yoga, stretch, and abs classes. Among the more popular options are TRX Suspension Training- a revolutionary method of functional training using a suspension trainer and bodyweight exercises that originated with the U.S. Navy SEALS – and Body Sculpt Boot Camp, which is designed to be completed with only 1 dumbbell making the continuity from cruise to home easy. Body Sculpt participants can expect to burn up to 700 calories in the 40 minute class, and each receives a take-home poster/programme which outlines all the exercises and breaks the programme up into four manageable workouts.
Other advanced options available on many ships include one-on-one training and body composition analysis. The fitness centre also offers a range of complimentary classes and seminars including Detox for Health & Weight Loss and Relieving Back Pain and Improving Posture with Good Feet.
A putting green, bocce ball and croquet area available on the top deck.
The multi-sport area on decks 18 and 19 is designed to offer a collection of fun options, including court games, lawn activities and even a lounge for virtual gaming. The Centre Court can be used for basketball, tennis, volleyball and badminton, while baseball fans can even practice their swing at the portable batting cage. Golfers will find a driving range facility, while the simulated laser shooting range offers a new onboard activity. The Game Lounge will offer a comfortable space to meet up for games, including table tennis and virtual gaming with Kinect systems.

You or your travel consultant must advise Princess in writing of any special diet, allergies or medical needs. Requests must be received no later than 35 days prior to departure for cruises to Alaska, Canada/New England, Caribbean, Hawaii, Mexico, Panama Canal and Coastal Getaways. For all other cruises, requests must be received no later than 65 days prior to departure. Once onboard, please check with the Director of Restaurant Operations to confirm your request.
Any special dining requests (name brands, daily food order requests, sample menus, etc.) not related to medical or allergy requirements should be directed to the onboard dining staff and is not handled by our Dietary Office.
The legal drinking age of 21 years is always observed onboard all ships, 18 years on Grand Princess Mediterranean itineraries, and proof of age may be required. All onboard staff are trained to take their responsibility to not serve alcohol to underage passengers seriously. The age restrictions are clearly posted in the bars.
Entry into the disco is limited to passengers 18 years and older. Be sure to check with the child and teen centres, however, for special disco events designed just for kids. Children under the age of 18 are welcome in the gymnasium, spa and jacuzzi; and also in the evening entertainment show lounges when accompanied by a parent or guardian.
In line with domestic age limits, as well as Princess' company policy, the casino is reserved for passengers 21 years and older. Additionally, only those passengers 21 years and older will be allowed to purchase or consume alcohol. For those whose age is questionable, picture identification may be requested.
You should dress for a cruise with Princess the same way you would for any stylish land-based resort.
Casual sportswear, including shorts, lightweight pants and jogging suits, is the order of the day both at sea and ashore in hotter climates.
Princess recommend you bring a sweater, a jacket or an all-weather coat for cool evenings, and for shore excursions, depending on your destination. Due to unpredictable weather, don't forget a hat or visor and a collapsible umbrella. Please be sure to bring proper clothing for visits to religious sites. You'll also want low-heeled, rubber soled shoes for strolling on deck, as well as comfortable walking shoes or sandals to wear.
Princess makes it easy to know what to pack and what to wear when you’re dining onboard our spectacular ships. There are two designations for dress codes: Smart Casual and Formal.
Passenger attire should be in keeping with what they would wear to a nice restaurant at home; Skirts/dresses, slacks, and sweaters for ladies, trousers and open-neck shirts for men
Inappropriate dinner wear such as pool or beach attire, shorts, ball caps and casual jeans (with fraying and/or holes) are not permitted in the dining rooms. Shoes must be worn.
When formal nights are held, please observe the dress code in the Traditional Dining and Anytime Dining venues for the enjoyment of all guests. Evening gowns and cocktail dresses are suggested for women; Tuxedos, dinner jackets or dark suits with a tie for men
Keeping the comfort of our guests a priority, and in consideration of consumer studies which show smokers are a small minority of guests, Princess has implemented the following smoking policy:
Designated Smoking Areas
Clearly marked “Designated Smoking Areas” are available onboard and include a sufficient number of ashtrays that are emptied regularly. Generally, these areas include cigar lounges, a section of the nightclub, as well as a portion of the open decks. The Casino and Casino Bar are non-smoking areas on board, with the exception of designated slot machines where guests are permitted to smoke only while playing at those machines. All table games are non-smoking. The Casino will also have one or more non-smoking nights (6 pm to closing), depending on length of voyage. Show lounges, dining rooms and all food services areas on board all Princess ships are non-smoking. As a safety precaution, guests are reminded to properly dispose of cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco, which are never to be thrown overboard as this may be sucked back into the ship and cause fires.
Stateroom Smoking Policy
Princess Cruises prohibits smoking in guest staterooms and balconies. This reflects the preferences of a vast majority of our guests who value having their primary living space (both stateroom and balcony) smoke-free. As balconies are a hallmark of Princess Cruises, we believe it is important to keep this peaceful space clear of smoke. Violations to this policy will result in a $250 fine for each occurrence, which will be charged to the guest’s stateroom account. Keeping with the global trend toward more restrictive smoking policies and honouring the wishes of our guests, we feel this enhances our onboard experience.
The use of electronic cigarettes is allowed within the confines of the guest's stateroom (balcony not included) and within designated smoking areas only.
