Princess Cruises Offers Veterans Day Sale & Year-Round Military Onboard Credit

Princess Cruises is offering a special Veterans Day Sale on a selection of 70 itineraries in Europe and Asia. The holiday promotion, which runs from Nov 9-14, features savings of up to $1,800 on a balcony stateroom, plus as much as $100 in onboard credit per stateroom.

Itineraries on sale include some of the line’s most popular European routes, including the Mediterranean and Scandinavia and Russia, plus Southeast Asia and China sailings. In addition to special fares, passengers booking interior or oceanview staterooms will receive an onboard credit of $25 (cruises up to nine days) to $50 (cruises 10 days or longer), and passengers in balcony staterooms or above can get credits of $50 (cruises up to nine days) or $100 (for sailings 10 days or longer).

Examples of savings on balcony staterooms include:

12-day Grand Mediterranean - $2,540 (was $3,040)
12-day British Isles - $2,790 (was $3,140)
11-day Scandinavia & Russia - $2,490 (was $2,840)
16-day Southeast Asia & China - $2,295 (was $3,195)
In addition to the Veterans Day Sale, Princess is also reminding military personnel that the line offers a special onboard credit program for active military and veterans. This credit of up to $250 (depending upon the length of the cruise) is available year round, and can be combined with the credit available through the Veterans Day Sale. Princess has also made it easier for veterans to obtain the special discount. Past passengers who have qualified for retired or veteran-status Military Personnel Benefits on previous sailings will no longer be required to resubmit requests for future voyages, but will have this discount automatically applied to their booking.

The Veterans Day Sale runs from 12:01 am PST on Nov 9 to 11:59 pm PST on Nov 14, and is available to residents of the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. Deposits made during this promotion are non-refundable and non-transferable. All cruise prices quoted above are per person based on double occupancy, and onboard credits are per stateroom. This promotion is not combinable with past passenger offers. Additional information about Princess Cruises is available on the company's website at
