Princess Cruises has announced that it is expanding its existing relationship with the Porsche Club of America to become the Official Cruise Vacation Partner of the club.
The announcement was made by Princess Celebrations Ambassador Jill Whelan and Ruby Princess Captain Mario Tani at the club’s annual Werks Reunion gathering on Amelia Island in Florida.
The organization’s 150,000+ members will now have more opportunities to engage with Princess, and be able to enjoy special branded experience cruises and an increased Princess presence at annual car shows, concours, and conventions. They’ll also be able to access vacation deals booked through a personal travel concierge that’s dedicated just for PCA members.
“In our first year with Porsche Club of America we realized that we had created something very special, given our members’ and guests’ collective passion for making connections, travel and experiencing incredible machines,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises. “Now as PCA’s Official Cruise Vacation Partner, we’re ready to take our partnership to the next level on land and at sea.”
One of the highlights of the partnership is an expanded lineup of special voyages exclusively for PCA members throughout the year, culminating in the inaugural PCA Treffen at Sea — a seven-day cruise on Sky Princess operating round-trip from Fort Lauderdale from December 9-16, 2023.
During the weeklong sailing, guests will visit Cozumel, Costa Maya, Belize, and Roatán while enjoying unique landside experiences just for PCA members.
Princess will also have a more prominent role at PCA’s various gatherings across the country, with plans to run another sweepstakes similar to its awarding of a Princess-branded electric Porsche Taycan that attracted over 900,000 entrants in 2022.
