Why Celebrate with Princess?

A Princess Cruise is a Celebration!

Why? It’s falling in love — or falling in love again — on the ships that inspired The Love Boat. It’s being surprised by moments of celebratory delight — from a colorful balloon drop to our Chocolate Journeys dessert program to an elegant champagne toast. It’s being treated by a crew who believe that moments like these are the best part of their job. Princess is world-famous for its celebrations at sea. Come aboard and celebrate...and you’ll find out why Princess offers the best celebration cruises.

Plan Your Celebration Cruise

For over 50 years, Princess has been creating unforgettable celebration vacations for our guests. Indeed, over 5 million guests have celebrated a birthday with Princess, and over 10 million guests have celebrated an anniversary with Princess.

But what if one person you love is 17, and the other is 71? A Princess cruise gives you the chance to connect with all of your favorite people – the young and the young at heart, in a place designed to please both. Celebrate together while enjoying the hundreds of amazing activities taking place on Princess ships from morning to night.
