Princess Cruises is offering you the chance to sail with the stars, with a brand new roster of guest speakers for Crown Princess cruises departing from UK ports.
As part of its ‘Encounters with Discovery’ series, the cruise line has enlisted a fantastic group of speakers from the world of royalty, entertainment, politics and sport. Discussing their career highs and lows and revealing more about their home life and hobbies, speakers will take part in a 45-minute Q&A session followed by a meet and greet. But these won’t just be flying visits – the stars will be cruising with the passengers, and will also answer questions about what it is like to be on-board.
