The day dawns with a dazzling realization – your time is your own to do exactly as you please. Which, of course, is exactly how a vacation should always be. On your Princess ship, whether you feel like socializing, exercising or finding a solitary spot by a pool with a good book, you’ve always got just the thing.

Each day, you’ll have practically endless possibilities – learn about the next day’s port in an engaging presentation, get a manicure, go shopping and then head to a tasting of Mexican tequilas. Best of all, you can follow your mood wherever it takes you, and return home refreshed, rejuvenated and renewed.

Activities from dawn to dusk keep you engaged and entertained. Attend a champagne art auction, join culinary demonstrations, learn to weave a flower lei or play the steel drum to a Calypso beat.

Enrichment programs offered on board help bring the regions you visit to life with courses on art and architectural history, destination photography or scrap-booking.

Spa offerings help you decompress in the Lotus Spa or on deck at the tranquil oasis, The Sanctuary, and include regional touches like Turkish Hamman steam baths. Fitness buffs will enjoy working out in the state-of-the-art fitness center, with classes like yoga or Zumba.

Princess has been named “Best Onboard Shopping” for six straight years by readers of Porthole magazine. Visit the boutiques for homegrown treasures like fine Italian leather, Russian Matryoshka dolls, New Zealand Puau shell gifts, Korean dolls and Taiwanese silk bags, as well as commemorative 50th Anniversary gifts – all at substantial tax – and duty-free savings.
