The Best of Both Worlds: Princess Cruises Offers Small and Large-Ship Cruising
Sophisticated Cruise Specialists at Crown Cruise Vacations Assist With the Ordinary and the Extraordinary
Princeton, N.J. (November 11, 2011) – There is an ongoing debate among cruisers: Which is better … large or small ship cruising? There are arguments for both – small ships have a more intimate and specialized feel, along with opportunities to explore a region more thoroughly by visiting ports that cannot accommodate larger ships. Large ship cruising offers a total immersion; boundless activities and options, along with amenities like large casinos and Broadway-style entertainment productions that are simply not possible on smaller ships.

But is it possible to have it both ways? Yes, say the experts at Crown Cruise Vacations, if you choose to sail with Princess Cruises. “Princess offers a unique opportunity to sail on either a large or small ship, while still enjoying the many perks that the line is known for,” says Crown Cruise Vacations President Ross Spalding. 
Take a voyage on the Caribbean Princess, with a capacity of 3,080 passengers, and experience Movies Under the Stars®, an enormous poolside movie theater featuring first-run movies, concerts and sporting events. Enjoy street performance acts in the Piazza, pamper yourself with a massage in an outdoor cabana, or enjoy a made to order meal at the Crown Grill.

On your next voyage, try out the Ocean Princess, one of the two Small Ships of Princess®, that carries just 680 passengers. Escape the crowds, and experience the unique hospitality and charm that comes with small ship cruising. With more intimate, private-club-style atmosphere, this ship still offers plenty of options for dining, spa services, and even a casino that features blackjack, roulette and slots.

Want to sail on a large ship, but still capture that intimate feel? You can do that, too, thanks to Princess’s recent completion of a 3-year project. On their 14 large ships, Princess has added a private retreat: The Sanctuary, an adults-only exclusive “getaway.” Guests who take advantage of The Sanctuary can expect a “child-free” environment for adults to relax and enjoy massage, drinks, light meals and service by “serenity stewards.” There is a flat-fee charge of $10 per person for each “period,” defined as AM (from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) and PM (from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. or later).
