the country or for emergency evacuation.
Guests may want to consider Princess Vacation Protection, which
is available for purchase up to the time of final payment of the
cruise fare. If the guest did not secure Princess Vacation
Protection, it is recommended that they secure other travel
Designated Smoking Areas
Clearly marked "Designated Smoking Areas" are available onboard
and include a sufficient number of ashtrays that are emptied
regularly. Generally, these areas include cigar lounges, a section
of the nightclub and casino, as well as a portion of the open
decks. As a safety precaution, passengers are reminded to properly
dispose of cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco, which are never to
be thrown overboard as this may be sucked back into the ship and
Stateroom Smoking Policy
Smoking is prohibited in all passenger staterooms and on
stateroom balconies. Violations to this policy will result in a
$250 fine for each occurrence, which will be charged to the guest's
Special Dietary Needs - Advance Notice Required
The use of electronic cigarettes is permitted in all areas
onboard with the exception of dining areas and the Princess
Theater. However, should a fellow guest in the vicinity feel
inconvenienced and complain, even after being told the difference
between electronic and real cigarettes, the guest will be asked to
refrain from smoking the electronic cigarette.
In addition, kosher meals and baby food are available upon
advance written request. Any other special diet requests must be
authorized in advance by the Princess corporate office.
Guests or their travel agent must advise Princess, in writing,
of any special diet, allergies, or medical needs. Requests must be
received no later than 35 days prior to departure for cruises to
Alaska, Canada/New England, Caribbean, Hawaii, Mexico, Panama Canal
and Coastal Getaways. For all other cruises, requests must be
received no later than 65 days prior to departure. Once onboard,
please check with the Maitre D' to confirm the request.
Wheelchair Access & Special Needs
All Princess ships have wheelchair-accessible staterooms, but it
is highly recommended that guests bring collapsible wheelchairs, as
the widths of the stateroom doors vary. Guests may bring their own,
or they can pre-reserve a wheelchair and have it and other medical
equipment delivered to the ship by contacting Special Needs at Sea
at 800-513-4515 (outside the US 954-585-0575), or by visiting
Special Needs at Sea's website (http://www.specialneedsatsea.com/).
Alternatively, guests may contact CareVacations at 877-478-7827 or
cruiseshipassist.com. Some areas on some ships are not wheelchair
Passengers utilizing mobility devices with batteries are advised
that the batteries must be a dry cell type, and must be stored and
recharged in the stateroom. Mobility devices of any kind, like any
other items, may not be left outside the stateroom. Because of
staffing limitations, it is recommended that guests travel with a
companion who is physically able to assist them both onboard and
Travelers with disabilities should check in with the onboard
Tour Office to ensure all shore excursions can accommodate them.
Not all port facilities are accessible for those using mobility
devices. Ports may be accessed by a variety of methods including a
ramped gangway, a series of steps or by tender. In some cases, you
may be able to access the tender, but the shoreside facility will
not be accessible. Many ports of call use a mechanism known as a
“stair climber” to assist passengers up and down the gangway.
Passengers must transfer to a Princess wheelchair, which is
connected to the stair climber and operated by the ship’s
personnel. Guests may be precluded from going ashore if they cannot
transfer or if their personal mobility device cannot be easily
disembarked. With the safety and comfort of guests in mind, the
decision to permit or prohibit passengers from going ashore will be
made on each occasion by the ship’s Captain, and the decision
will be final. Ports that normally use tenders to access the shore
are noted on the itinerary.
The maximum weight of the wheelchair including guest cannot
exceed 600 lbs. on transportation lifts. If the guests has
purchased a Princess Transfer at the start or end of the cruise,
they must be made aware that lift-equipped transportation may not
be available in their port of embarkation or disembarkation.
Tender Port Policy
The goal of Princess Cruises is to provide a safe comfortable
cruise experience for all guests. If a guest will be using a
mobility device during their sailing, it is strongly recommended
that they travel with a person physically fit to assist with the
guest's needs both onboard and ashore. Embarking and disembarking
can be challenging for those with limited mobility. Many major
ports of call provide easy access for wheelchairs and scooters.
However, due to various conditions - steepness of the gangway,
weather, shore-side facilities, tidal and sea conditions -
passengers using mobility devices may be required to transfer to a
stair climber or be precluded from going ashore. Princess staff
will make every effort to assist but are not allowed to
individually physically lift more than 50 pounds (22 kg).
Some ports of call require the ship to anchor off shore.
Passengers are then taken to shore by small boats or tenders. When
tendering is required, passengers using mobility devices will not
be transferred into or out of the tender, if lifting in excess of
the above limitation is required. Many tender ports do not provide
wheelchair access so even if the passenger can board the tender
they may not be able to disembark ashore. Again the shore-side
facilities, movement of the tender, weather and tidal conditions
can also preclude tendering.
The decision to allow any passenger to board a tender or
disembark the vessel will be made by the Captain on the basis of
the safety and welfare of all involved and is final. If passengers
are unable to tender or disembark because of circumstances outlined
above there will be no refund or credit for missed ports. While
Princess recognizes guests' disappointment, the safety of both
guests and crew takes precedence.
Entry regulations for service animals vary by port. Passengers
are advised to consult authorities at each port prior to departure
for more information. Princess does not have food onboard for
animals. The choice of dog litter material is limited and varies by
Electronic Assistance Devices
Princess ships are equipped with “All-in-One Kits” with TTY
that can be used in most passenger cabins and at Princess
wilderness lodges. Most televisions onboard provide closed
captioning and most onboard theaters have assisted listening
devices. Electric outlets in most staterooms are limited to one and
it is helpful to travel with an extension cord for electrical
equipment. Princess also offers JAWS Professional software with a
KOSS-TD/80 headset on one terminal in each Internet Café on every
