Default Sanctuary

What is the drill with the sanctuary? We are thinking about checking it out on our upcoming cruise. The Princess website gives some description but little detail.

It's one of those things that some people feel it's worth it, while others don't.

Basically, it's just the opportunity to enjoy an adults only area that has nicer lounge chairs, water, juices, and fruits with a quieter ambiance.

You can purchase it for the length of your cruise or per day, but personally we just never felt it was worth it.

If you're interested in booking it for the whole cruise you need to get their ASAP...like one of you take the bags to the room while the other heads to the Sanctuary to book it. I've done it for a couple of days at a time but never felt the need for the entire cruise

Go for half day, 1/2 price. We went from 1-5 it was really nice and quiet.
I made a video last time I experienced the Sanctuary.
Yes - get there early esp on the big ships - fills up fast.
Was it worth it? Well the ship we were on was not very full so probably wasn't worth it but we wanted to try it. We also used On Board Credit to cover the costs.
