The holiday shopping season is in full force, and many shoppers are fretting over last-minute gift options that can still be meaningful and memorable. Princess Cruises has the ideal solution with a range of gift cards, including options for instant or scheduled delivery to perfectly time when the gift arrives.

Princess Cruises Holiday-Themed Gift Cards

As many holiday shoppers struggle to find meaningful gifts rather than material items that may be discarded even before the new year arrives, Princess Cruises has the answer – gift cards to book any of the line’s sailings worldwide.

“Everybody loves to travel, and our gift cards make the perfect holiday gift – not only are they convenient and widely available but put you at the top of Santa’s nice list for sure,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises.

In addition to the traditional gift card – a physical card that can be slipped into a greeting card or wrapped in a box – featuring an elegant Princess Cruises ship, e-gift (digital) cards are also available in a variety of customizable designs.

Popular holiday design options include an elegant menorah, “Merry Christmas” written in snow, and a “Merry & Bright” motif with wrapped packages.

E-gift cards can also be purchased in several other general Princess Cruises themes, or further customized with a personal photo or audio message to send individual holiday greetings.

Card denominations are available for $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, and $2,000 (USD), or can be customized in value. The minimum value is $25 and the maximum is up to $2,000 on a single card.

The electronic cards are especially convenient, as they can be sent instantly via email or scheduled for a future delivery date and time. This means no worries about early peeking or late delivery when holiday shipping services are especially frantic.

There is no delivery fee for e-gift cards, and free shipping is offered by first class USPS mail for orders of $100 or higher. For plastic, to-be-mailed gift cards less than $100, there is a nominal shipping fee of $1.99, and expedited shipping options are also available for additional fees.

Guests should note that all sales on Princess Cruises gift cards are final and orders cannot be canceled once placed.

Using Princess Gift Cards

Gift cards and e-gift cards can be used to book any of Princess Cruises’ sailings on any of the line’s 15 amazing ships, with no expiration dates or fees.

With sailings to 330 destinations worldwide and visits to all seven continents, including the upcoming 2023 season in Japan aboard Diamond Princess, this lets gift recipients truly plan their dream cruise.

Furthermore, gift cards can be applied not only on future bookings, but also for existing bookings with remaining balances, helping pay off an upcoming cruise.

Princess Cruises’ gift cards can be used not only to book a cruise, but can also be used for onboard purchases such as spa treatments, photography sessions, premium ice cream, or exclusive events to make that someone special’s oceangoing getaway even more memorable. Gift cards may not, however, be applied to air travel arrangements.

Onboard a ship, gift cards must be taken to the Passenger Services Desk to be applied to guests’ folio accounts, which can be done at any time during a sailing.

With so many options for using gift cards, giving someone a gift fit for royalty is easier than ever with Princess Cruises.
