Deal or No Deal

But when it comes to Deal or No Deal, one of the world’s most popular TV game shows, that’s easier said than done, especially when contents range from a penny to $1,000. Contestants must decide whether to accept the offer of “The Banker” and walk away with a sure bet or go for broke. In our version at sea, audience members can play along to win just as much cash or even a free cruise!

Experience the Voice of the Ocean

Think you have what it takes to take the stage? Princess is bringing the excitement and spectacle of TV’s hugely popular singing competition to the high seas, live and on-stage, with The Voice of the Ocean.
