Princess Cruises has launched a new program that will provide guests with the best possible rates for its 2025 and 2026 cruises. The new “Better than Best Price Guarantee” ensures that if a guest finds a lower price for the same cruise, stateroom category, and sail date before their final payment, Princess Cruises will match the lower rate.

In addition, Princess Cruises will provide 120 percent of the difference to passengers in the form of onboard credit. The guarantee is available for bookings made between July 1 and September 2, 2024.

“Our new guarantee underscores the Princess commitment to offering unparalleled value and exceptional service to guests… value that is unmatched by land-based vacations,” said Terry Thornton, chief commercial officer of Princess Cruises.

Thornton also noted the importance of booking early as the demand for 2025 voyages is already nearly 30 percent higher than usual at this stage in the booking cycle.

“This offer not only guarantees the best rates, but also ensures guests can choose their preferred dates and destinations,” he continued.

The guarantee covers all 16 ships in the Princess fleet and includes inclusive packages like Princess Plus and Princess Premier. These packages include amenities such as Wi-Fi, beverages, desserts, fitness classes, and crew gratuities and save guests up to 65 percent compared to buying them separately.

Guests who find a lower price for the same Princess cruise, stateroom category, and sail date before their final payment must submit a Guarantee Claim Form to receive the “Better than Best Price Guarantee.”
