SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (Dec. 21, 2017) – For last minute holiday shoppers, Princess Cruises offers the gift of exploration, new perspectives and lasting memories with a Princess Cruises Gift Card. Available as a digital Gift Card or as a plastic Gift Card, both of which can be easily ordered from the cruise line website, the cards can be used toward the cruise fare or onboard charges such as a spa treatment, shore excursions, specialty dining or retail shops.
According to First Data's latest Consumer Insights Survey, which polled 3,650 people 18 years and over, digital gift cards are on the rise with 51% of those surveyed having received or purchased one in the past year. A key benefit of Princess Cruises Gift Cards is that the cards can be delivered either digitally or as a traditional plastic card and can be used for a cruise purchase or to enhance the experience of friends and families while onboard. For Millennials surveyed, the biggest appeal of gift cards is the ability to purchase immediately, so you can be at the airport heading home for the holidays and buy your parents' gift and schedule it to be emailed to them on Christmas morning.
Princess Cruises Gift Cards may be purchased in several standard denominations ($50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 and $2,000), or any amount above a minimum value of $25 up to a maximum value of $2,000 per card.
