    Cruising for a Cause: U.S. Veterans

    November 5 – 9, 2013

    Help Princess Cruises Support our Veterans

    Princess Cruises is proud to announce our first fundraising sailing which is expected to generate approximately $1 million for two charities committed to U.S. veterans – the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund and Operation Homefront. Princess President and CEO Alan Buckelew, a Vietnam veteran himself, will be on board to host the cruise.

    This 4-day Western Caribbean cruise will offer passengers the opportunity to honor both those who have served in the military, as well as active duty military personnel. Onboard programming and activities will serve to promote the cause, provide fun opportunities to donate to each charity and celebrate those who have, and are, serving our country. A sampling of the custom-designed activities include a Stars and Stripes Sailaway, service branch get-togethers, guest lecturers, auctions, a fund-raising walk, and much more.
