Check out this fun Princess Cruises video!

Passengers aboard Emerald Princess were surprised to find as many as 20 Santas aboard their July Baltic sailing. The Santas, who were aboard for “Santa School,” treated passengers to a special opportunity to celebrate Christmas in summer with some “merry and bright” fun, including carols, cookies and even snow in the atrium.  Read More

I wanted to share this video with you, for which Princess Cruises simply writes in its description, “We hope this ‘Relaxation Minute’ will help you take a moment in your day to relax, unwind and escape completely!  Read More

In this final installment in Princess Cruises‘ Grand Princess drydock video diary, the passengers have boarded.  Martyn proudly showcases the new Piazza-style atrium’s many features, as well as the Crown Grill.  On hand to help celebrate the ship’s Grand Opening are many Princess Cruises executives and crew members, including Executive Chef Alfredo Marzi (for whom the new Alfredo’s Pizzaria is named), the Grand Princess’s Sommelier, Maitre d’ and others.

The pastries and coffee in the International Cafe look very tempting, the Sommelier mentions a few exquisite wines available onboard, Chef Marzi serves Martyn the first pizza made in his new namesake restaurant, and the ambience in the new Crown Grill is superb.

And if you’ve been following my posts about the Grand Princess’s renovations, you know that’s just a few of the new features onboard.  What a magnificent new ship the Grand Princess has become!

Just one day before welcoming passengers onboard the newly-renovated Grand Princess, cruise director Martyn takes us on a whirlwind tour of the completed areas, including the Princess casino, the family sunbathing area (complete with a new splash pool), the fitness center and Lotus Spa (You’ll even get the hairdresser’s perspective on the new salon and spa areas while she gives Martyn a haircut!).

I was particularly interested in Mona Ehrenreich’s post because the Princess Cruises Scandinavia and Russia cruise itinerary she went on also happens to be on our personal travel bucket list.  I really liked how she and her fellow travelers helped the young people in their group relate to the sights and monuments they visited, and I am thoroughly impressed at the amount of research she did before her trip to be able to impart these details to those traveling with her.

This truly goes to show how there is something for everyone to be found throughout the world.  We look forward to taking our family on a cruise to Scandinavia and Russia soon!

In Istanbul Ignites a Spirit of Adventure, I really like how Captain Kent of Princess Cruises‘ Star Princess relates his desire to be at sea and to travel to pop culture and his family’s history.  When he describes finally having the chance to visit Istanbul, the realization of his dream is palpable.   I’m happy to know that Captain Kent will have the opportunity to visit Istanbul once again when the Star Princess returns to the Mediterranean this summer!
