Princess Cruises Receives Good Housekeeping Accolade


Princess Cruises has become the first cruise line to receive the “Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval” from international health, recipe and diet magazine, Good Housekeeping.

The cruise line has been officially endorsed by Good Housekeeping Magazine for its on board dining experience – making it the first cruise line in the industry to receive the accolade.

Princess received the coveted ‘Reader Endorsement’ for its on board dining option – an award based on reader’s feedback regarding the cruise firm’s choice, taste, food freshness, healthy options and overall presentation. A handful of Princess’ restaurants – including its main dining rooms, Crown Grill Steakhouse and Sabatini’s Italian Restaurant – were also recognised as providing an excellent ambience and service.


Based on their individual dining experience, 8/10 Good Housekeeping readers would choose Princess again, whilst a further 8/10 would recommend the cruise line to a friend. Positive comments featured in the Good Housekeeping endorsement included:

  • ““The service was attentive and we were made to feel special without being over formal.  Any requests we made were acted on without fuss or delay.”
  • “Lovely setting, very welcoming and comfortable. Not a single evening when it was difficult to find something that we fancied to eat.
  • “The food was fantastic, fresh, perfectly cooked to our taste, the service was excellent, staff friendly but professional. Couldn’t ask for more.”

With a diverse range of menus and restaurants, all serving completely fresh food, there’s always something tempting on offer for our guests and we’re privileged to see this recognised.”

Good Housekeeping Magazine will accredit Princess for 12 months – which is good news for the cruise line. The ‘Reader Endorsement’ signifies a product has been tried and tested by a panel of trusted Good Housekeeping Institute experts, as well as over 14,000 consumers.
