Princess Cruise packages have several changes. This is to give their passengers more proverbial bang for the literal buck with newly-enhanced versions of two popular packages.
With the expanded versions of the Princess Plus and Princess Premier options, the company says guests can save money in several ways.

New Princess Cruise packages include drinks, Wi-Fi & more
In announcing the new Princess Cruise packages, the cruise line acknowledged that, as with everything else, the prices associated with various cruise amenities are rising.
By bundling the most popular of these offerings, guests can save, especially compared to what each amenity would cost if purchased separately.
The first package, Princess Plus, features the Plus beverage package, Wi-Fi for one device, gratuities, two premium desserts per day, unlimited juice bar beverages, and two Xponential fitness classes per cruise.
The package costs $60 per person per day, which Princess says is 54 percent savings compared to what it would cost to purchase the various elements individually for a typical seven-day cruise.
In the long run, those who want to receive more perks and save more money might consider the Princess Premier package.
This option includes the Premier beverage package, Wi-Fi for up to four devices, gratuities and unlimited juice bar beverages, Xponential fitness classes, and premium desserts.
In addition, this package includes two specialty restaurant visits, a photo package, reserved seating in the theater, and more.
So what are the more significant differences between the two Princess Cruise packages?
The drink package included with Princess Plus covers beverages up to $15, while Princess Premier covers those up to $20. Meanwhile, the photo package offered with Premium includes unlimited digital photos as well as up to three prints.
The Premium package also includes “Princess Prizes.” This means that every time you swipe your Medallion to enter your stateroom, you can win prizes such as wine tasting or dinner at the exclusive Chef’s Table.
Perk-free options available
For those not interested in items such as the drink package or fitness classes, Princess also offers the Standard Package, which is essentially your cruise fare without perks. Once on board, guests can, of course, opt to pay for any or all of the amenities individually. Details on all three options can be found here.
