So the long awaited blog about Ovation of the Seas; so what can I say? Did she disappoint?No.The one...
Princess Cruises have been sailing the seas since 1965! If you haven’t cruised with Princess before you may be familiar with them from the popular TV show “The Love Boat” which was set on a Princess ship in the 70s, or else because one of their ships was named by the Duchess of Cambridge.
They currently have eighteen ships in their fleet with a wide range of variety amongst their vessels. Whether you want a ship that has 3560 passengers or just 680 passengers - the choice is yours! There are seven different classes of ship, all with different amenities and on-board facilities to suit your needs. Popular vessels include the Royal Princess, Grand Princess and the Ruby Princess.
You would if…

So what can you expect to get up to on a Princess ship?
Every ship has at least two pools and four hot tubs as well as a luxurious Lotus Spa and Salon to relax in. Even more luxurious is Princess’ Sanctuary area... This private adult only retreat is a secluded setting where you can lounge on comfortable sofas and cabanas whilst enjoying chilled face towels, relaxing music and signature beverages and snacks. Sounds like bliss to us!
There is a state of the art on-board gym and fitness classes if you fancy something more energetic. You can also visit the shops, browse the library, take a behind the scenes tours and join one of the enrichment programmes. If you’ve got a head for heights, visit the Sea Walk on Royal class ships where you journey through a walkway sticking out from the side of the ship!
For a bit of razzle dazzle, visit the theatre to be wowed by performances of hit shows such as Stardust and the musical Wicked. The Princess “Movies Under The Stars” experience will have you watching films on the big screen outdoors with popcorn and blankets whilst the “Discovery at Sea” programme will teach you art history, navigation and culinary arts & crafts.
Does this sound entertaining and relaxing? It should do! After all, Princess promise you will “come back new!”
With the option to dine both causally with anytime dining and traditionally with formal dining, whether you want to dress up or down or at a time to suit you - it’s your choice on Princess.
Each ship has ten or more dining options available so not only will you never go hungry - you’ll have plenty of choice too! Indulge on a six course meal in the main dining room, grab a slice of pizza from Alfredo’s Pizzeria or enjoy a sirloin at Sterling Steakhouse.
Favourite speciality dining restaurants include:
For something more casual, enjoy the Horizon Court Buffet, Café Caribe and the 24 hour International café. You can also enjoy afternoon tea in the main dining room or a few scoops of ice cream from Gelato for an extra treat!
For a special occasion, enjoy your food out on your balcony for a romantic or relaxed setting as you taste your way through a four course meal in the privacy of your own room.
To compliment the wide range of food choice, the bars on-board are all well stocked with some having a choice of up to 30 wines to choose from. Popular watering holes include the nautically themed Wheelhouse Bar or Crooners martini bar.
Each room on a Princess ship will come equipped with:
Guest who are staying in suites will have enhanced amenities such as gel eye masks, linen spray, lip balm, free DVD library access and bath salts.
Every day you will receive the Princess Patter daily programme and have access to the internet café, Wi-Fi and self-service laundry. The currency on-board is in US dollars, unless sailing in Australian waters where the currency will be Australian dollars.
Princess have a range of facilities on-board to make families and children comfortable. They include:
Whilst sailing through Alaskan waters kids can even learn to become Junior Rangers as they get involved with the National Park Service.
You can expect to wear smart casual clothing on-board in the evenings. Men should wear trouser and shirts whilst women wear smart separates, blouses or dresses.
On selected evenings you will be able to get dressed up for formal nights which usually occur twice on a sailing of bewteen7 and 13 nights. Get your cocktail dress out if you’re a lady or wear a tuxedo or dark suit if you’re a man.

We sailed on the Emerald Princess from Southampton on the 16th April visiting Vigo,Lisbon,La Rochelle and Guernsey. We have cruised many times before but this was our first with Princess and we couldn't believe how quick and easy check in was we were on the ship within 20 minutes of arriving at the dock! We always choose an inside cabin as we don't spend enough time in it to warrant paying extra for a window! Our cabin (stateroom) was spacious and clean with a fridge that's always stocked with ice. A couple of small things lacking in the cabin that you normally get on ships are cotton wool, cotton buds, shower cap and hair conditioner. There's loads to do on the ship it's hard to fit...
