How you get our military and Veteran discounts on all Princess Cruises?

Our website uses the most advanced cruise search technology available today.

Every time you use our website to search for a Princess cruise and cruise pricing, it accesses the Princess cruise system to find their lowest rate.

Then, our system automatically adds an additional military and Veteran discount from us.  So the rates you see on our site will be lower than Princess’s lowest rates.

Sometimes Princess advertises lots of free amenities, but only if you book using a higher-priced farecode than their lowest price available.  Sound confusing?  It sure can be!

All of the cruise lines are doing this lately, where they seem to offer good stuff for free, but not at the lowest price they advertise.

But hey, that’s what we’re here for!  We’re total experts on all Princess pricing and discounts, what’s applicable and what’s not.  We can explain everything to you by phone, email or chat, and make sure you get the best deal, lowest rate and all discounts applied.

How much are the Military and Veteran discounts on Princess Cruises?

Instead of a military and Veteran discount off their prices, Princess offers an onboard credit for every military member or veteran in the cabin.

This special military benefit is eligible on any cruise, any time of the year and can be used to purchase a wide variety of amenities and experiences on your Princess cruise ship.  Scroll down to read more about the amounts of this on board credit.

Is Princess right for you?

Princess is an elegant cruise line, yet it is still surprisingly affordable. There are 17 ships in the Princess fleet; most of their ships are less than 10 years old and hold between 600 and 3000 passengers. Princess has been around for 40 years and their experience shows – from every angle, they do cruising right.

Princess usually offers discounts for past-passengers. Thus, after your first Princess cruise, you’re highly incentivized to take another! And since Princess has more ships circumnavigating more places around the globe than any other vacation provider – there’s no reason to travel anyway else!

Princess stands out in the cruise industry for offering a wider variety of cruise itineraries (over 100) and ports of call (more than 300) than any other cruise line.

Look at all the places Princess sails:

      • Canada/New England from Brooklyn
      • 6 ships in Alaska and 22 different cruise tour options in 2016
      • 5 ships in Europe with 2 in Northern and 1 for British Isles
      • Take a breath, as there are hundreds more destinations to list, including: Beijing, South Korea, Japan, Papeete, Polynesia, Bora Bora, Australia and New Zealand and on and on it goes!

Another of our favorite things about Princess is that they take food seriously. Every sauce is made from scratch and chefs use local ingredients to create dishes inspired by the region you’re visiting. This is different from most cruise lines who primarily use American food distributors.

Although Princess gives the first impression of being an adult-oriented luxury cruise line, they actually have an extensive program for kids with separate facilities and activities for three age groups: 3-7, 8-12, and 13-17. The result – kids of all ages will enjoy a Princess cruise as much as their parents! (On Princess’s smaller ships, The Pacific, Tahitian and Royal Princess, children’s programs operate only when 20 or more children are on board.)

What are the benefits offered to military and veteran groups on Princess?

A. Amenity Points

B. Tour Conductor credit(s)

C. Our military discount and Princess’s onboard credit!

Military and Veteran's Groups on Princess Cruises

A. All About Fun Points for Groups on Princess

The benefits or perks offered with Princess group cruises are allocated based on Princess ‘group amenity points’.

The amount of ‘amenity points’ that your group cabins are entitled to depends on the cruise selected and the number of passengers in the group. 

Once you have selected a specific sailing, and know what type of cabins your group wants, and how many in your group – we’ll look into Princess’s system to see how many points your group will get.

These amenity points can be used to get onboard credit for each cabin in the group or various other gifts*.

Using the amenity points, your group may then choose ONE option:

a. either the onboard credit amount that applies for your sailing,

b. one of the other gift choices, *

Whatever you select then applies to all cabins in the group.

Here is a table from Princess, which shows what your amenity points can get for you, and how many fun points each gift costs, based on the length of the sailing. 

Military and Veterans Princess Group Cruise

B. The Tour Conductor Credit(s) applied to Princess Group Cruises.

Each group will get one tour conductor credit per 8 cabins with 16 people.

This tour conductor credit can be used to give 1 passenger a FREE cruise fare!

This credit begins applying once all 8 cabins are booked and the amount of the tour conductor credit is the average for the group based on double occupancy.

This means, if most of the cabins booked are inside cabins, the amount of the tour conductor credit will be one inside cruise fare.

The person with the free fare will still have to pay taxes and port charges though.

You could choose to distribute the amount of this free cruise fare to all passengers in the group, thus lowering everyone’s fare by a small amount.

But we recommend this credit be allocated to the person in your group who’s going through the most trouble to organize the group. Because, honestly folks, organizing a group takes a lot of work. Some groups especially are like herds of feral cats…getting them all going in the same direction is impossible.

C. Our military discount

In addition to all the group benefits provided by Princess, any groups booked with Military Cruise Deals will receive an additional discount off the cruise fare. Thus, everyone in your group will PAY LESS than if they had booked directly with Princess.

PLUS any cabins with the military members in then are eligible for onboard credit from Princess of up to $250. (This onboard credit applies to the military members only.) 

Cruise LengthAmount
14 days or longer$250 per military member
7 – 13 days$100 per military member
6 days or less$50 per military member
