Princeton, N.J. (May 17, 2017) – Crown Cruise Vacations President Ross Spalding recommends Princess Cruises and its many dining experiences. At any hour, wherever you go on your Princess® ship, Princess’ chefs are busy baking, grilling and sautéing great tasting fare from scratch. Whether you want to dress up or dress down, there’s an incredible variety of fresh, flavorful cuisine awaiting you.

Check out the wonderful inclusive dining options that you can savor every day on board with Princess. Some charges may apply and some offerings are available on specific ships.


Fine Dining Options

From zesty appetizers to robust tasting soups, crisp salads, sumptuous main courses and luscious desserts, you’ll eat like a king – or queen. Best of all, you can choose from two great inclusive dining options.

Anytime Dining℠

Anytime Dining option—a Princess original—allows you the freedom to eat with whomever you wish, and whenever you like—just as you would at a fine restaurant—between 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. You can have a table for two one evening and join a group for a festive meal the next. The choice is yours.

Traditional Dining

The classic cruise experience, Traditional Dining option allows you to dine at the same time, either 6:30 p.m. or 8:30 p.m. in Princess’ upscale main dining rooms. You’ll be seated at the same table and enjoy the same tablemates and wait staff throughout your voyage.

Decadent Desserts

It’s your vacation, so indulge! Each evening, you’ll have your choice of delectable desserts to choose from in the dining rooms. Perennial guest favorites include the Princess Love Boat Dream, traditional New York cheesecake and create-your-own sundae. You’ll also find fresh cookies, pastries and other treats at the International Café and the Horizon Court buffet.
