Your choice of Anytime or Traditional Dining: A sumptuous variety of dining options awaits you on every voyage. Princess offers you the choice of Traditional Dining with fixed time and seating, or Anytime Dining with the flexibility to dine when and with whom you choose.
  • Traditional Dining: is the classic cruise experience, allowing you to dine at set times with the same table mates and wait staff each evening.
  • Anytime Dining: offers more flexibility, giving you the freedom to dine with whom you choose, anytime between 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. in a selection of elegant, upscale restaurants.
Both options offer menus featuring creatively-prepared appetizers, entrees and desserts that change each day of your voyage - as well as several healthy Lotus Spa selections. * Not available on Sun, Dawn, and Sea Princess (while in Australia), Ocean, or Pacific Princess.
Looking for something a bit more casual? Drop by the Piazza-style Atrium and visit the International Café for fresh-baked pastries, paninis, and gelato. Or grab a seat in the Vines Wine Bar for an intriguing selection of sushi, tapas and, of course, wine.
  • International Café: Open 24 hours, the quaint café located in The Piazza serves an ever-changing array of quick bites and light meal choices.
  • Vines Wine and Seafood Bar: Vines Wine and Seafood Bar serves a selection of unique new- and old-world vintage wines along with gourmet delicacies.
  • Horizon Court: Open from 5 am to 11 pm (12 am on select itineraries), the Horizon Court offers a wide selection of buffet meals or snacks. The top-of-the-ship restaurant features floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning sea views as a backdrop for a quick breakfast or casual dinner.
  • Poolside Options: Out on deck, enjoy a fresh, cooked-to-order hamburger, chicken sandwich or hot dog from the grill, or opt for a freshly-baked slice of hand-tossed pizza. Or grab a cone of ice cream at the ice cream bar. It's all conveniently available to you poolside on the open decks.
  • Afternoon Tea: Indulge in afternoon tea with finger sandwiches, pastries, scones, cookies, music and white-glove service. It's the perfect interlude between sunning out on deck and a star-studded evening at sea. Enjoy a wide selection of premium teas — from Earl Grey to herbal infusions. And of course there's coffee, if you prefer. The choice is up to you.
Specialty Dining Options: (Reservations are suggested)
Princess specialty restaurants offer a memorable dining experience in an intimate and upscale atmosphere.

Princess Cruise Line

Kids Activities


Cruising with Princess is a complete escape for all ages. There's everything from arts and crafts, sports tournaments, movies, and splash pools (on select cruise ships) to Teen Lounges with foosball tables, juke boxes, and the latest video games. All Youth Centers and Teen Lounges are fully supervised by the experienced staff of Youth Activities Managers and counselors. Children are welcome on all Princess cruise ships, but facilities vary. Pacific Princess and Ocean Princess do not have dedicated Youth and Teen Centers (programs are available only when 20 or more children are sailing). However, when 20 or more children ages 3 to 17 are traveling on these ships, they will enjoy a varied schedule of supervised activities organized by a Youth Activities Manager. Please be advised that Youth Staff may not offer individual one-on-one supervision or administer medication.
At Princess, they believe learning is fun. Through their exclusive partnership with the California Science Center, their Youth Staff are trained to deliver exciting interactive science activities for kids ages 3-12. Whale watching, rollercoaster building, chemistry experiments, and squid dissection are just some of the activities that may be offered.
They also offer the Pete’s Pals Program as a way for Princess kids to learn more about threatened and endangered species in the areas in which Princess sails. Children participating in this program will receive a limited-edition plush animal to take home as a souvenir.
