Princess brought back its ‘Back Best. Sale. Ever,’ offering five perks — drinks, Wi-Fi, gratuities, stateroom location upgrade and specialty dining. The perks represent a value of at least $695 on a seven-day cruise.
The sale is open to residents of the US, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Bermuda. It runs from Dec. 15 through March 2, and all cruises and cruise-tours are eligible.
The perks include a ‘Premier Beverage Package’ (ages 21 and up) or the ‘Premier Coffee & Soda Package’ (for those under 21). Other perks are unlimited MedallionNet Wi-Fi for all guests in a stateroom (up to four devices), crew tips and stateroom location upgrade (which applies in like-to-like stateroom types and is not available for suites). The specialty dining perk provides a meal at one restaurant for all guests in the stateroom.
