Princess Cruises is one of the cruise companies of the global travel giant Carnival Corporation (NYSE: CCL and CUK).
The third largest cruise line, Princess, in 1965 began its journey to success with just one single ship that cruised the Mexican coast. Over these half a century, the company has grown to the scale of an international cruise network that carries over 1.7 million passengers every year around the world.
From the very beginning, the Princess strived to focus on the needs and wishes of their customers, thereby setting standards that later spread to the entire tourist cruise industry.
For a long time, the company has been the undisputed leader in the design of liners with a minimum number of internal cabins, so that their passengers can fully enjoy such a simple luxury as a private balcony. The private veranda, which was once the privilege of only luxury cabins, became available to almost every traveler in the 1980s thanks to the Princess.
Princess was the first to abandon the strict adherence to the cruise schedule. The concept of personal control of the passenger over his time has made the approach to vacation more personal and allowed to create his own vacation atmosphere. The company also pioneered the All Inclusive 24/7 system. In 2001, the 24-hour restaurant added the ability to choose between the usual breakfast-lunch-dinner format and the restaurant format where you will be served a hot lunch whenever you want.
Other Princess innovations include the first wedding chapel aboard a ship, a unique open-air cinema in Times Square style, and the so-called "Shelter" - an oasis of endless tranquility for those who want to get away from children and family.
Regardless of where the ship is headed, Princess passengers can always count on courteous service in an atmosphere of casual elegance. The public spaces and lounges on the Princess ships are designed to provide privacy even on the largest ship, while the stylish contemporary décor creates an informal environment where it is pleasant to relax while keeping your finger on the pulse of events.
Princess CRUISE's Human Resources Program has been in place for over a decade (perhaps the longest running program in the industry), thus ensuring the best possible service for each of its many clients. The philosophy of passenger custody has become the backbone of onboard travel policy, where teamwork is a priority.
With over 150 different Princess destinations, travelers can literally travel around the globe with routes to all six continents. The company's range includes cruises to the Caribbean, Mexico, Panama Canal, South America, Hawaii, Canada / New England, Alaska, Europe, Africa, Tahiti / Polynesia, South Oceania, Australia / New Zealand, India and Asia, as well as round the world cruises. Princess passengers can diversify their vacation with excursions for every taste, and special travel offers from the company will allow you to combine a cruise with a full-fledged overland travel.
Tours to the Gulf of Alaska deserve special attention. Princess has developed a range of unique land and sea adventures in the majestic Land of the Midnight Sun.
How, then, can an ordinary liner give you so many possibilities without limiting your personal space?
Each of the 17 ships in the Princess fleet is designed to accommodate every passenger: spacious decks, elegant and comfortable lounges and shared cabins, private cabins with a private balcony. In addition, there are many opportunities to have a wonderful time, have fun, and choose an activity that suits your mood.
Recently, the company's fleet has been expanded with the modern Royal Princess, which represents the new generation of 2013 liners. The ship has a double atrium, making this place a kind of center of social life on board. New additions include the impressive SeaWalk surface gallery - a glass-bottomed tunnel that extends over 8 meters beyond the ship; pool bungalows that seem to swing on the water; dazzling water and light show; new television studio Princess Live !; confectionery that will fulfill any dream of a sweet tooth; a wider choice of food and restaurants, including Chef's Table Lumiere - a special place where guests are surrounded not only by exquisite delicacies, but by curtains of soft light.
