Alternatively, why not spice up a sea day? Step out of your plush bed (if you can bear to part with it) and truly pamper yourself with Princess’s Ultimate Balcony Dining experience before heading to the pool deck or spa for a day of real TLC.

So, what delicacies can Princess passengers expect on the menu? Feast your eyes (and stomach) on the spread that awaits at breakfast. Feel like a, well… Princess as a smorgasbord of pastries looking far too good to eat is served to you by your private waiter.

Ensure you leave room for the delectable cold-smoked salmon, though – it’s served alongside dill cream cheese and a toasted lemon brioche and a quiche Lorraine, a bacon, shallot, tomato and fontina cheese gratin. Even your morning fruit has undergone a glamorous makeover, served with clover honey Chantilly crème. Then wash everything down with bubbly - this breakfast easily knocks your usual bowl of porridge out of the park!

The dinner menu offers mouth-watering treats; indulge in Pacific blue crab cake baked in a puff pastry crown, served with thyme-infused tomato chutney and whole grain mustard cream – and this is just to start!

Tuck into broiled tails of cold water lobster alongside drawn lemon butter and a vegetable bouquet or a grilled filet of beef tenderloin Diane alongside chateau potatoes, vegetable bouquet and a mushroom demi-glace. If you can’t bear to make the decision between the two, enjoy both with the surf and turf option.

All of this comes alongside cocktails, canapés and a half-bottle of French Champagne, meaning your hand will never be empty.

Room for more? Have your cake and eat it by ending your dinner in indulgence with Princess’ extraordinary chocolate quartet served with delicate quenelles of dark, Swiss, milk and white chocolate mousseline for dessert.

If you are in a stateroom with a balcony, this is a treat exclusively designed for you, with dinner costing an additional $100 per couple and breakfast $45 for two people.
