With everything from centuries-old castles and pretty churches to thrilling amusement parks, lively shopping districts and iconic landmarks, Europe is a dream destination the whole family can enjoy. Take advantage of Princess Cruises’ ‘Fly Europe’ programme and explore this fascinating continent.
Step onboard a Princess Cruises’ ship and prepare for the family holiday of a lifetime. Choose from an array of well-appointed staterooms and suites which include many modern amenities. A range of exciting activities and amenities are open to you including pools, golf driving ranges, basketball courts, dancing classes and movie screenings under the stars. Indulge in a variety of tasty dining options, from the Horizon Court Buffet which is said to serve the “best pizza at sea”, to sinfully delicious sweet treats like soufflés and cookies created by master chocolatier Norman Love.
A menu of activities for all ages awaits. For the younger kids there’s everything from Nintendo Wiis, mini golf, treasure hunts and talent showcases, to cake decorating, handcraft sessions and miniature Olympics. Teens can enjoy beach-themed ‘hang-out lounges’, ‘rock the boat’ parties – where they can sample delicious mocktails – video game tournaments and late-night movie screenings. Princess Cruises provides the exclusive Club 1820 which only young adults can join, where they can party in style, plus you’ll also find family events like game nights, trivia challenges and movie showings.
While having fun with your loved ones on a Princess Cruises’ ship, you can discover destinations ranging from Hawaii to the Panama Canal to the South Pacific and Europe.
Arrange complementary flights to Europe on various Princess Cruises, including journeys offered on the Regal Princess. This is an ‘Ocean Medallion’ class ship, where you will receive the highest level of service and personalisation known to cruising. Ocean Medallion ship guests are given a complementary wearable device such as a wristband, which you can use to unlock your stateroom door and make payments at your convenience. It also records your preferences, for example by noting your regular drink orders, allowing the vessel’s crew to anticipate your needs.
Luxurious cruise experiences await on the Regal Princess. Watch the spectacular Princess Watercolor Fantasy light and water show with your children, relax in the ‘Sanctuary’ adults only retreat, or stroll along the 28ft glass walkway that rings the ship. The Regal Princess features over 1,400 balconies providing sweeping views, as well as a photography studio where you can get black and white family portraits. Indulge in delicious meals in the ship’s restaurants from frosty treats to Texas-style barbeque brisket, or experience fine dining at venues such as the award-winning Sabatini’s which serves signature pastas and flavourful Italian wines.
Take an 11 night voyage during summer 2018 and whisk your children off to Scandinavia and Russia on the Regal Princess. This is a Fly Europe trip, so your break will begin with a complimentary flight, along with transfers to the Danish capital Copenhagen. Make the most of your time by visiting the Tivoli Gardens, an amusement park with a ferris wheel, carousels and bumper cars. It is also home to family-friendly sites like Copenhagen Zoo which has a polar bear habitat and the Hans Christian Andersen Fairytale House with its interactive exhibits which delve into his magical stories.
Depart Copenhagen and cruise to Oslo, which will captivate your children with its Viking Museum, enchanting Vigeland Sculpture Park and dramatic fjords. Next up is Berlin, an educational destination with attractions including the Brandenburg Gate, the Holocaust Memorial and Check Point Charlie. Sail up to Tallinn, which is a warren of medieval streets and storybook forts for your family to explore before arriving in St Petersburg, the home to iconic landmarks such as the Winter Palace. On the way back to Copenhagen stop at Helsinki, where you can buy souvenirs and local handicrafts at world-famous markets and Stockholm, with its theme parks, charming old town and even an ABBA Museum!
