Princess Cruises celebrates 50th anniversary with ‘Birthday Deals’

Princess Cruises is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a series of ‘Birthday Deals’. 

The line’s first ship set sail on December 3, 1965, when the 400-guest Princess Patricia travelled from Los Angeles to the Mexican Rivera.

Customers booking a cruise can receive up to $50 free onboard spend per day per stateroom and will also only pay a £50 deposit per person.

They will save up to 50 per cent when booking 3rd and 4th guests in the same stateroom.

“To celebrate, we are delighted to offer our guests our 50th birthday deals.
