12 Best Princess Cruise Deals for 2020

Note: This article is a sponsored post from AvoyaTravel.com.

While the big cruise lines might get all the headlines, it’s some of the smaller lines that may give you an experience that you’ll never forget. And if you aren’t looking into trip aboard these ships, then you may be missing out.

Take Princess Cruises. The cruise line might not be the biggest out there – or have mega-ships that get all the press — but those who sail on the line often fall in love. With 18 ships sailing literally around the world, Princess continues to impress passengers with an experience that’s a step above its rivals.

How Princess Is Different From Other Cruise Lines

What’s so special about Princess? They have a decidedly different take on cruising that’s a refreshing change for many. If you’ve never sailed Princess before, here’s what you can expect that makes the cruise line different…

A Greater Focus on Luxury
With Princess, there is a definite focus on luxury compared to larger mass market cruise lines.

Take food for instance. Feeding thousands of cruise passengers is always a challenge, but Princess aims to keep things fresh, with many dishes being handmade. Meanwhile, celebrity chefs have taken the lead in bringing new flavors to its cruises, instead of just the typical buffet fare you might find on other ships. Food & Wine Magazine has gone so far as to award Princess as the “Best Cruises for Food Lovers”.

That upscale atmosphere extends elsewhere on the ship. From spas to service to even mattresses in the cabin designed with sleep doctors to give you the perfect night’s sleep, Princess goes above and beyond to give you the best cruise possible.

Unique Ports of Call
One other way that Princess is different from other lines is its lineup of ports of call. Ports like Cozumel and Nassau see millions of cruise passengers each year, but those looking to avoid the crowds will appreciate the lesser-visited ports where Princess often stops.

For instance, many Princess cruises in the Caribbean have stops in places like the U.S. Virgin Islands and St. Maarten — two spots that are less frequented by your large cruise lines and ships. The result is that you get to enjoy a little slice of paradise without having to share it with four or five other cruise large ships.

Unique Cruise Itineraries
In line with different ports of call is another thing that makes Princess Cruises different: their unique cruise itineraries. Most lines sail a few different routes to the Caribbean. Princess sails literally around the globe.

There are your classic Caribbean cruises from Florida, but also Alaskan cruises, Hawaiian cruises, and even worldwide trips. No matter where on the planet you want to explore — or if you just want to stay close to home — there is an itinerary to suit you.

Now, with an upscale focus you might expect a cruise aboard Princess to be expensive. What’s surprising is that the cruise line offers a lot, yet the prices aren’t that much higher than what you’ll find aboard other lines.

In fact, we found some cruises that sail for as little as $60 per day, per person. In other words, you don’t have to sacrifice your budget to have a high-end vacation.

Our Top Cruise Princess Cruise Deals for 2020

Regal Princess

Below we’ve looked through hundreds of Princess trips in 2020 departing from the United States to bring you the best deals we could find. This includes inexpensive trips to Alaska, Hawaii, the Caribbean, and more. If you’re looking for a Princess deal, these are you best bets for the coming year.

Our search was done using AvoyaTravel.com. The website allows you to easily search cruises to match any schedule, and you can even sort by price to find the best deal for you. (They also often have exclusive deals you won’t find elsewhere.)

Prices are current as of the published date of this article and are per person, based on an interior cabin. Keep in mind that prices can change.

4-Night USA/Canada Cruise | $299 | Star Princess

One place where you can find cruise deals is with itineraries that are a little different than normal. This cruise is a perfect example. At four nights, it’s a shorter cruise than the others on our list, but it also sails a one-way trip. Departing San Francisco, you’ll cruise up the West Coast with a stop in Astoria, Oregon and then Victoria, Canada before ending the trip in Vancouver.

What we like is that this unique trip heads to the Pacific Northwest — one of the most beautiful parts of the world — during a time of year that many people don’t think of visiting. Due to the length and the fact that it’s a one-way cruise, you can get aboard for as little as $299 per person for an interior room. That means you’ll pay less than $100 per day for a trip on a luxury line through a gorgeous part of the country.

7-Night Caribbean Cruise | $549 | Regal Princess

Think of a cruise, and you likely picture a week-long trip that sails to the warm Caribbean with blue water and white sand beaches. This cruise is the cheapest 7-day cruise to the Caribbean that we found aboard Princess.

Why so inexpensive? One of the biggest factors in what you’ll pay for a cruise depends on when you set sail. Trips that leave when school is in session tend to be cheaper. This cruise leaves in early February, and will cost you under $80 per night (before taxes and fees).

On your cruise you’ll sail to the Princess Cays (Bahamas), St. Thomas (U.S. Virgin Islands) and Phillipsburg (St.Maarten). These three ports offer some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean — far from the huge crowds like you’d find in Cozumel or other busy ports.

7-Night Mexico Cruise | $549 | Royal Princess

Everyone knows that Florida is king when it comes to cruises, but that doesn’t mean you have to jet cross-country to get a deal on a Princess sailing. Los Angeles is a major port for the cruise line, and this is the least-expensive sailing for a week-long trip from the port.

This cruise heads down to Mexico, with stops in classic Mexican locales including Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta. There are also a couple of days at sea that you can use to relax and unwind.

The cruise only costs $549 for an interior cabin. That would be a good deal for any cruise line, but considering that Princess is focused on luxury, it’s an especially attractive price.

• Date: February 29, 2020
• Departure Port: Los Angeles

7-Night Mexico Cruise | $599 | Royal Princess

This cruise is the exact same as the one we have listed above. It sails aboard the Royal Princess from Los Angeles as the ship heads to Mexico for a week-long trip.

So why would we included it when it’s $50 more per person? The appeal of this trip is that it’s at the height of Spring Break season, leaving on Saturday, March 14 and returning on March 21. Normally trips during the middle of March are hundreds more than similar trips in February. This cruise can be yours for only $50 more per person for an interior cabin.

Frankly, you’re not going to find many deals better than this for the middle of March on any cruise line.

7-Night Caribbean Cruise | $639 | Regal Princess

Is it easier for you to get to Florida instead of Los Angeles? Those living in the eastern half of the country will appreciate that this cruise in the heart of Spring Break is only $639. Less than $100 per person each day is a deal during this popular time of year to sail.

This specific cruise departs on Sunday afternoon, for a short trip to Princess Cays in The Bahamas. From there it will head to ports in the U.S. Virgin Islands and St. Maarten.

For comparison, this trip is only about $90 more than the same route featured earlier in our list, despite leaving during the peak of Spring Break.

7-Night Alaskan Cruise | $699 | Emerald Princess

When it comes to Alaskan cruises, Princess is one of the top names. It has won Travel Weekly’s award for the best cruise line in Alaska a stunning 15 times. With that sort of reputation, you’d expect it to cost a fortune to sail to Alaska aboard the line, but there are some great deals offered in 2020.

This trip is among the least expensive roundtrips that we’ve found across any line (there are a few for $599 on other lines), and will give you a once-in-a-lifetime cruise to the “Last Great Frontier.”

On this route you’ll sail to Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, followed by a stop in Victoria, Canada, before returning to Seattle. If you’ve ever wanted to finally pull the trigger on that trip to Alaska, this is your chance.

7-Night Alaskan Cruise | $709 | Emerald Princess

The Alaskan cruise season technically runs from May through September, but by far the busiest months are June, July, and August. During this time families are able to travel without kids missing school, meaning there is more demand for cruises.

As you’d expect, more demand also means higher prices. Still, there are deals if you search a bit. We found this cruise from Princess for $709. That’s actually the least expensive roundtrip Alaskan cruise from Seattle during the summer months (June/July/August) that we found… not just on Princess, but on any cruise line.

It features stops in Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway before a final stop in British Columbia before returning home to Seattle.

7-Night Caribbean Cruise | $779 | Caribbean Princess

Can’t cruise until the summer? Unfortunately you’ll have to pay a bit of a premium to sail during this busy time of year, but you don’t have to break the bank on Princess. This route aboard the Caribbean Princess takes you to the Princess Cays, St. Thomas and St. Maarten — three ports that are gems in the Caribbean.

The cost is $779. That’s more expensive than similar cruises offered during the off-season, but it’s the least expensive 7-day Caribbean cruise offered by Princess in the summer months. Other sailings later in the summer run as much as $70 more per person for the same trip.

• Date: June 27, 2020

10-Night Mexico Cruise | $799 | Grand Princess

If you want to book this unbelievable deal, you need to move quickly. It’s a 10-night cruise that departs San Francisco in January. The reason for the urgency is that the price is just $799 per person for an interior cabin — or just $80 per night.

On this extended trip you’ll sail from San Francisco to Puerto Vallarta, Manzanillo, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas. In between you’ll have several days at sea to lounge poolside, eat great food, and enjoy yourself on the ship.

Perhaps best of all, with the January departure you’ll be escaping some of the harshest days of winter for sunnier and warmer locales south of the border.

10-Night Caribbean Cruise | $849 | Sky Princess

New York City isn’t known as a cruise capital, but with cold weather and tens of millions of people in the area, it’s an ideal place to hop a cruise to the warm Caribbean. This cruise can do just that, leaving in November 2020 for an extended 10 nights.

During the cruise you will head from New York to St. Maarten, Guadeloupe, and then all the way to Aruba. And because the cruise ends in Fort Lauderdale — instead of returning to New York — it’s on sale for cheap.

The price is only $849 for a ten-day vacation, making it one of the best deals we found from New York. You will need to catch a flight back home from Florida, but a one-way plane ticket can usually be found for cheap as well.

• Date: November 5, 2020
• Departure Port: New York City

15-Night Hawaii Cruise | $1,179 | Grand Princess

If you have the flexibility — and the schedule — to sail trips that many people couldn’t make, then you are going to find some fantastic deals. Take this cruise, for instance. It’s a 15-day roundtrip that departs from San Francisco on its way to Hawaii.

After you cross the Pacific you’ll have four different ports of call in the islands, giving you a sampler of all the major spots like Hilo, Honolulu, Kauai, and Maui. After that you’ll head back across the Atlantic to Ensenada, Mexico before returning home to San Francisco.

At $1,179 per person for an interior cabin, it’s is one of the more expensive trips on our list, but getting a cruise and a Hawaiian vacation wrapped up into one for less than $80 per day is a fantastic value.

• Date: April 5, 2020
• Departure Port: San Francisco

46-Night World Cruise | $3,416 | Grand Princess

Put simply, this is a trip of a lifetime for less than $80 per night. We know that not everyone can take a six-week cruise, but if you are looking for a trip that you’ll never forget (and won’t break your budget), then this is it.

Starting from Los Angeles, you’ll head across the Pacific with stops in Hawaii before heading on to Guam, Japan, South Korea, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and ending in Singapore.

Consider that just getting a roundtrip flights from the United States to one of these countries could cost as much as this entire cruise. And that’s before you factor in food, entertainment, and lodging. In short, to put together this historic trip yourself would likely cost you in the tens of thousands of dollars. Or you can pay a few thousand and have all the arrangements all taken care of for you to explore Asia.

Bonus Cruise

10-Night Panama Canal Cruise | $729 | Caribbean Princess

We’ve saved what we think is the best deal for a Princess cruise for last. This trip leaves in early January, so if you want to sail, then you need to act fast.

Departing Fort Lauderdale, this 10-night cruise will take you to Jamaica, Colombia, the Panama Canal, Costa Rica, and then Grand Cayman before returning home. It’s rare for a cruise to sail this far south in the Caribbean, so you’re getting a number of ports and experiences you aren’t going to find on other cruise lines — including sailing the Panama Canal.

For all of that you only have to pay $729 for an interior room. That’s just $73 per night! And did we mention that this is at the beginning of January when the mainland United States is in the grips of winter?

• Date: January 3, 2020
