Nothing says “thank you” like treating your mom to a Mother’s Day cruise. Whether she prefers a relaxing massage on board or a thrilling adventure ashore, there are activities for every type of mom when you sail with Princess®. Indulge in world-class cuisine, attend Broadway-style shows and unwind with mom’s favorite specialty drinks.
Seven best ways to spend Mother’s Day on a cruise:
- Relaxing by the Pool
Whether you’re traveling with kids or taking mom on a solo trip, the best way to spend Mother’s Day on a cruise is by relaxing poolside. Unwind on the padded loungers with a drink in hand, or head to the poolside bar for a cocktail mixing demonstration. When hunger strikes, you won’t have to go far for a treat, either. Find our world-famous pizza and complimentary soft-serve ice cream located on the same deck. Guests 18 years and older can also unwind at The Sanctuary, a spa-inspired retreat, just for adults.
- Pampering at the Lotus Spa
No Mother’s Day cruise is complete without a visit to the award-winning Lotus Spa®. Indulge in a range of rejuvenating treatments like aroma stone therapy massages, detoxifying ocean wraps and HydraLift facials. At the salon, you can even enjoy a manicure, pedicure or hair styling. Whether you book an entire day of pampering or choose treatments à la carte, give your mom a dose of relaxation and harmony with Princess.
- Finding Your Flow
For the moms who love a little bit of movement, start your Mother’s Day cruise with Zumba in the morning, or help her find inner peace with yoga on the deck. Hop on a bike for a heart-pumping group spin session, where you can pedal to the beat of your favorite songs alongside mom and fellow guests. Or opt for a low-impact activity with a Pilates class and a walk around the outdoor track. Whether in the fitness center or under the golden sun, find your flow with classes designed for every guest.
- Indulging in Specialty Dining
Celebrating a special lady calls for specialty dining for Mother’s Day. Cruise to your next destination and revel in some of the best restaurants at sea. Stop by Chef Curtis Stone’s SHARE to enjoy everything from charcuterie and salad to pasta and dessert. Or savor hand-cut cooked-to-order steaks at Crown Grill and premium seafood specialties at Sabatini’s. For the ultimate Mother’s Day cruise dinner, book the Chef’s Table and indulge in a multi-course dinner with the ship’s Executive Chef, all while seated in the inner sanctum of the ship’s galley.
- Watching Movies Under the Stars®
Round out your Mother’s Day cruise celebrations with an evening of Movies Under the Stars®. Located on the top deck, our outdoor theater allows you to watch popular films, concerts and sporting events from the pool, hot tub or a comfortable chaise lounge. Share a cozy blanket with mom while snacking on complimentary popcorn. Or treat yourselves to a glass of cold milk with warm cookies for the perfect nighttime treat.
- Attending Broadway-Style Productions
Dazzling lights, enchanting vocals and inspiring storylines come together every night in the Princess Theater with our Broadway-style productions. With mom by your side, attend shows created by Tony® Award-winning composer of Wicked, Stephen Schwartz. Admire the intricate costume designs, visual effects and choreography as performers waltz and leap their way across the stage. From light shows and dance performances to musicals and rock concerts, our world-class productions will make your Mother’s Day cruise not only memorable, but also magnificent.
- Embarking on a Shore Excursion
Our award-winning shore excursions are the best way to spend Mother’s Day on a cruise when you’re in port. From hiking up a waterfall to sunbathing on a catamaran, there are activities for every type of mom. Adventure-seekers can zipline over rainforests in the Caribbean, history-lovers can pan for gold in Alaska and foodies can nibble their way through Ireland’s unique culinary trails.
