Hygiene and Safety Protocols
Princess is actively working with public health officials and medical experts in an effort to do everything possible to prevent illness, including COVID-19, onboard Princess ships. Here are some actions that Princess is taking to ensure our guests can sail confidently and safely with Princess.
Princess is constantly monitoring the global health map and cancel or modify itineraries to impacted areas. Princess also prevents guests and crew who have recently traveled through these high-risk locations from boarding.
Enhancing Health Requirements
Princess will deny boarding to guests and crew if they:
- Have been in contact with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 or a person being monitored for COVID-19.
- Are suffering from a fever or flu-like symptoms prior to embarkation.
Stepping Up Screenings
At embarkation, Princess will require all guests and crew to participate in mandatory health screenings, which may include a thermal scan to check temperatures, and in some cases secondary screenings. Depending on the results, Princess will deny certain individuals boarding if they feel they could pose a risk to others.
Enhancing Sanitation Procedures in Embarkation Terminals
Enhancing Sanitation Procedures in Embarkation Terminals Beginning in select terminals on March 7, 2020, highly touched surfaces throughout each embarkation terminal will be sanitized continuously, and terminals will be thoroughly sanitized and, where possible, fogged before and after each embarkation and debarkation.
In addition to the rigorous daily cleaning regimen they already have, Princess is establishing additional sanitation measures on all of their ships, which include sanitizing frequently touched surfaces in all public areas – from tables and chairs to casino chips and fitness machines – even more often than they did before.
Free-flowing Hand Sanitizer
Princess already has hand-washing sinks or hand sanitizer dispensers in front of entrances to all dining venues and the buffet. Crew will monitor entrances to all venues to encourage all guests wash their hands before entering. Princess is also adding additional hand sanitizer dispensers in high-traffic areas around the ship.
Keeping Crew Healthy
Each day, Princess is raising awareness daily of how to maintain a healthy environment on board by reinforcing frequent hand-washing, avoiding hand contact, reporting guests who present signs of illness and more. Princess will also more actively enforce crew hand-washing and provide more hand sanitizers in crew areas.
Revising Medical Protocols & Staying Prepared
Every Princess ship sails with a highly capable medical team that will receive special training for COVID-19. Any guest or crew member who exhibits symptoms of respiratory illness will strongly be encouraged to visit the Medical Center for a complimentary consultation and, if appropriate, screening for COVID-19.
24/7 Monitoring and Preparedness
Princess' team monitors world health developments from state-of-the-art Fleet Operations Center in Santa Clarita, California, and offices around the world 24-7. Princess is also in close contact with major health agencies, medical experts and partners in the travel industry so Princess can act quickly to revise plans and protocols as the situation evolves.
Life on Board
Questions & Answers
Question: When should I arrive at the port?
Question: How can I communicate with my family and friends at home when I am on the cruise?
Very easy to work with..
The staff and crew of the Star Princess were the best. Always responsive to needs and requests and able to meet all needs. The ship is showing signs of age (almost 18 years old) and needs some overhaul.Princess plans to sell ship in early 2021 and new ship to replace.
The quality of the shore excursions offered by Princess was good, but the organization and time management by the staff was poor. We were often asked to assemble in large groups early in the morning, wait for up to an hour for our tour to be called, and then finally be lead to our excursion buses. This seems to be done for the convenience of the crew and not in the best interest of the passenger. Also, on the last day of the voyage, we all had to be off the ship early in the morning and transferred to the airport as early as 12 noon. The counters for American Airlines did not open until 5:30pm, forcing hundreds of Princess passengers to stand with their luggage for 5 hours before being able to check in.
Easy and best value. We have booked through Affordable 4 times and always been satisfied.
Very easy to book. Very professional help when needed.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP.
The Princess Star Princess is showing her age and constant use. She is now in dry dock for up fitting. The staff and crew were very good. This 15 day cruise appeals to older, limited mobility people and a significant number of passengers required special assistance. We adjusted to electric wheelchairs, walkers and canes very quickly! Five days on the North Pacific to and from Hawaii also requires some adjustments. The ocean was a little rougher and passengers need to know that this type cruise is different than those that make land in a few days.
The "Star Princess Denali Explorer - Voyage" was an outstanding trip and exceeded expectations. The services and activities on the ship were outstanding.
Our cruise was amazing! The Star Princess exceeded our expectations. Our booking agent was top notch. He knew what he was talking about and gave us some very useful tips and information. There were no hidden cost and we had a wonderful week!
The cabins we had exceeded my expectations. The ship was wonderful and the itinerary was exciting.
The service, food and accommodations were what we expected. Very friendly staff, varied and excellent cuisine.
Everything was perfect Thank you so much. Looking forward booking the next trip
I was very satisfied with my trip in every way--both in the planning of it and the wonderful result!
