Celebration Group

Consumer Terms & Conditions


Celebration Group pricing and benefits are available only to legal residents from the United States and Canada that book a minimum of five (5) staterooms and a maximum of ninety-nine (99) staterooms, subject to availability, on cruises sailing from three (3) to twenty-four (24) days.


Each Celebration Group (“Group) must elect a member of their Group to serve as the Group’s representative with Princess (the “Group Representative”), and each Group member authorizes the Group Representative to make all decisions on behalf of the Group, including dining preferences and arrangements, and how the Group will use benefits awarded to the Group, including points and amenities.


Celebration Group gets Princess Plus group fares with drinks, Wi-Fi and crew appreciation included. The Group can also request to change to Princess Saves group fares.


Points are automatically applied to the Group contract at time of Group set-up. The number of points earned by the Group vary by voyage and number of days booking occurs in advance of departure. The Group Representative can decide how to apply the points for amenities (subject to availability). Point selections and changes must be made at least 75 days prior to the voyage’s sail date. The minimum of 10 group passengers must sail in order to receive the amenity.


Princess awards one Tour Conductor (TC) credit for every eight staterooms a group books, which can be used on a ninth stateroom. Celebration Group can also use points to buy down the TC ratio to be 1:7, 1:6 or 1:5, which means a Celebration Group could get one Tour Conductor credit for every 7 (1:7), 6 (1:6) or 5 (1:5) staterooms you book. A Celebration Group with a reduced TC ratio can earn a maximum of 12 TC credits.


Each Celebration Group has a dedicated Princess® expert to assist in planning the group vacation and enjoys early access to Dine My Way‚Ą† reservations.


Group space is blocked on double occupancy basis only. Triples and quads are capacity controlled, subject to availability and may not receive special group pricing.


Unless otherwise noted, fares quoted are in U.S. Dollars, and are only applicable to residents of the United States or Canada. Onboard credits, where applicable, are considered part of the Group Fare. Passengers who qualify for and accept promotional fares may not combine them with Group Fares, including onboard credits, and may not count toward cruise escort berths. Bookings made within a category type (inside, outside, balcony, mini-suite) will automatically decrement the allocation within that category type. Once an allocation is exhausted, Princess reserves the right to charge additional bookings a higher fare at its discretion.


“Taxes, Fees & Port Expenses,” as used by us, may include any and all fees, charges, tolls and taxes imposed on us by governmental or quasi-governmental authorities, as well third party fees and charges arising from a vessel’s presence in a harbor or port.

Taxes, Fees, & Port Expenses may be assessed per passenger, per berth, per ton or per vessel. Assessments calculated on a per ton or per vessel basis will be spread over the number of passengers on the Ship. Taxes, Fees & Port Expenses are subject to change and Princess reserves the right to collect any increases in effect at the time of sailing even if the fare has already been paid in full.


The deposit(s) noted on the front of the confirmation are due 30 days after confirmation, unless noted otherwise. Non-payment of Bulk Deposit(s) will result in cancellation of allocations without further notice. NON PAYMENT OF PASSENGER DEPOSIT(S) WILL RESULT IN CANCELLATION OF STATEROOM(S) without further notice.


Both first and second guests in a stateroom can be changed up to 21 days before the sailing date under the booking reservation. Any request for name substitution within 21 days before sailing represents a cancellation and release of space. Princess reserves the right not to restore the space to the group allotment.

Hence, all fares, taxes, fees and port expenses, non-commissionable fare, schedules, port calls, hours of arrival and departure and special programs are subject to change without notice. Right is reserved to assess fares and charges in effect at time of booking. Princess reserves the right to amend or add to the contents of this document at any time, with or without prior notice.


For qualifying lower berth passengers (excludes upper berths) traveling UNDER THE RATES AND TERMS OF THIS GROUP CONFIRMATION, a cruise escort BERTH will be earned based on the “Escort Concession” ratio stated on the front of the group confirmation. Escort concessions are not available on cruises of 2 days or less. All escort fares do not include any air, Cruise Plus packages, transfers, Taxes, Fees and Port Expenses, noncommissionable fares or amenities. Cruise escorts must be designated at the time of finalization and will be assigned based on the lower berth average of the group.
