Transat adds Princess Cruises to its roster

Montreal, April 17, 2018 – Transat is pleased to strengthen its offer of all-in-one cruise packages with the addition of a partner: Princess Cruises. Starting May 19, 2018, travellers from Montreal and Toronto will be able to set sail aboard the Caribbean Princess from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.   

The Caribbean Princess, in a nutshell

With touches of luxury, the Caribbean Princess appeals to those with a taste for adventure and for authentic and unique experiences, be they families, couples or solo travellers.

Like all Princess Cruises ships, the Caribbean Princess offers the best of both worlds: all the perks, choices and variety found on board big ships, but with the intimate ambience of small ships. After its March 2017 multi-million-dollar makeover, the Caribbean Princess returns with a myriad of luxurious enhancements, from its staterooms to restaurants to fresh experiences for kids and teens.

The Caribbean Princess also boasts two main dining rooms, six specialty restaurants, 12 bars and lounges, and countless activities for all ages and interests. And with dream itineraries that will take travellers from the white sands of Honduras to the lush forests of Belize to the crystalline waters of the Cayman Islands, this ship is sure to deliver an exotic adventure.  

Even more itineraries and additional ships with Princess Cruises ships will be added to Transat’s program in 2018 and 2019.

Booking made easier with Transat’s all-in-one cruise packages

With Transat’s hassle-free cruise formula, it has never been easier to plan and book an adventure at sea, all in one step. Cruise packages include roundtrip flight with Air Transat, all transfers and the cruise. Plus, with Flight Protection, travellers are sure to get to their cruise in case of a flight delay.

Extending a trip

Travellers who book a cruise package with Transat can extend their trip, at no extra cost, by moving up their departure date up to 14 days before their cruise or postponing their return to Canada up to 14 days after their journey at sea.
