Their package “Princess Plus” includes gratuities, all adult beverages, free wi-fi, two specialty desserts per day, and two fitness classes.

Arizona Business Manager Dana McCullough will be here in Sun Lakes with a special presentation, talking Alaska, New England, and Europe. Princess is #1 in Alaska with their own lodges. This will be your opportunity to chat with her about the Princess Medallion.
