Princess Cruises is giving away a seven-night all-inclusive Mediterranean cruise on board its newest ship, Sun Princess, with flights for two

As Sun Princess departs from the Greek capital of Athens, you might hear fishermen discussing their catch of the day or smell the aroma of souvlaki – skewered chicken served with a dollop of minty tzatziki dip – carried on the breeze from local eateries.

You’ll also have the chance to visit the Greek isle of Santorini, which is famed for its whitewashed homes and blue-domed churches. Here you can try local delicacy apochti, salted pork cured in vinegar.

Turning north along the Adriatic coast, you’ll get to clamber along ancient city walls in Kotor, Montenegro, enjoying panoramic views of the sparkling bay below.

What to expect

The ideal holiday for friends or family, this Mediterranean itinerary with flights for two departs on 19 April 2025.

Sun Princess can carry up to 4,300 guests and boasts expansive vshiews from innovative entertainment venues, multi-storey dining rooms and state-of-the-art accommodation.

On board you’ll be able to enjoy uninterrupted sea views from your deluxe balcony stateroom (cabin), which has a queen-size bed, seating area, plasma-screen TV and ample storage.

If you’re looking for a serene sailing experience, then you’ll be in the right place as the ship features a luxurious spa with treatments such as anti-ageing facials and seaweed massages, as well as a fitness centre with treadmills and personal trainers.

The vessel’s 29 restaurants and bars give you myriad choices. Options include The Butcher’s Block by Dario – where butchers slice meat tableside while explaining the cooking process – and The Catch by Rudi, which offers seafood dishes paired with wine recommended by sommeliers.

In the evenings, take to the Princess Arena for live stage shows such as Stage Struck, Viva La Musica, Fiera! and Vallora, A Pirate Quest, which follows a young pirate on an adventure of self-discovery.

For a taste of the whimsical, end your evening in Spellbound, where mystery meets mixology. Here magicians perform mind-boggling card tricks as you sip cocktails such as Houdini’s Chest, which is presented in a leather-bound box overflowing with dry ice – just one of the many surprises you can anticipate aboard Sun Princess.
