On all 15 Princess ships between July 3 – 16, guests will have access to Wimbledon coverage, with the three sailing from Southampton – Sky Princess, Regal Princess, and Island Princess, showing matches on the top-deck movie screen.

Guests can also take part in tennis-themed trivia competitions and gameshows across all ships, while onboard paddle tennis tournaments will be arranged for longer voyages.

In true Wimbledon style, strawberries and whipped cream will be served onboard as well as the British staple, Pimms.

From July 4 to September 5, Princess Cruises is offering holidaymakers up to $600 onboard spend when they book a cruise sailing in 2024 or 2025. In addition, if they book their future cruise during the tournament, they will receive an extra $100, totalling up to $700 onboard spend.

This deal runs July 4 – 17 and applies to voyages on all ships in the Princess fleet, including the line’s soon-to-launch Sphere Class ships, Sun Princess and Star Princess.

Sun Princess launches in February 2024 and will spend a maiden season in the Mediterranean through to September, before relocating to Ft Lauderdale for the 2024-25 Caribbean season, with a return to the Mediterranean in spring 2025. Star Princess launches in August 2025 and will similarly spend an inaugural season in the Mediterranean.

In addition, Princess Cruises will be sponsoring tennis players across five matches in this year’s Wimbledon championships.

“With Wimbledon on the horizon, we’re serving up everything the championship has to offer from the comfort of our ships. Whether guests simply want to relax and enjoy a match, or channel their inner Andy Murray and take part in our tennis-themed challenges, we’re confident our activities will prove a smash,” said Hayley Moore, marketing director Princess Cruises UK & Europe.

“They can even kick back and enjoy a refreshing top-deck glass of Pimms or two, in honour of Wimbledon’s most popular courtside drink.

“And our limited time onboard spend offer will allow guests’ budgets to go even further on their next holiday, covering a host of onboard extras, from speciality dining to spa treatments to shore excursions.”
