Princess Cruises: Let’s Make A Deal

Mark your calendar and get ready to score a deal on the “Love Boat” of your dreams. Princess Cruises is offering special fares to some of its most popular warm-weather destinations, including the Caribbean, Panama Canal, Hawaii, and Tahiti, during a 3-day Sale running between July 20-22. Book during the event to save up to $1,000 per couple off Launch Fares, plus as a special bonus, receive as much as $100 in onboard credit per stateroom. Selected fall/winter 2011-12 cruises featured in the sale depart between Sept 21, 2011 and April 27, 2012, which just so happens to be the perfect time for getting away from cold winter weather.

In addition, passengers booking interior or oceanview staterooms can receive an onboard credit of $25 (cruises up to 9 days) to $50 (cruises 10 days or longer), and in balcony staterooms or above can get credits of $50 (cruises up to 9 days) or $100 (for sailings 10 days or longer). All onboard credits are offered per stateroom.

“If travelers are dreaming of getting away to tropical waters, this is a fantastic time to book,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises executive vice president. “This sale offers some of our lowest rates to the sunny beaches and colorful islands of these spectacular destinations, so it’s a great opportunity to relax onboard and enjoy the warm welcome of a Princess ship.”

What can you get and where can you go? Examples of savings include:

• 7-day Classic Southern Caribbean for $449 per person, plus up to $50 onboard credit
• 10-day Panama Canal for $899, plus up to $100 onboard credit
• 14-day Hawaiian Islands for $1,199, plus up to $100 onboard credit
• 11-day Hawaii and Tahiti for $1,695, plus up to $100 onboard credit

All cruise prices are per person, and onboard credits are per stateroom. The 3-day Sale runs from 5:00 a.m. PDT on July 20 through 6:59 p.m. PDT on July 22, and is available to residents of the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico. The only downside to the deal is that reservations made during the 3-day Sale require a non-refundable deposit.
