Princess Cruises is upping the perks during its special “3 For Free” sales event for passengers w ho book Alaska, Europe or Japan cruises and cruisetours sailing in 2015. Not only will you get a stateroom upgrade, but they are tossing in a free shore excursion credit and free onboard spending credit, and, this is a big one, a refundable deposit of only $100 per person.

The free shore excursion credit is nothing to sneeze at as it will afford travelers on Europe and Japan sailings $200 ($100 per person) to spend on shoreside tours such as a visit to the Hermitage in St. Petersburg or a stroll through Kyoto’s Golden Pavilion in Japan. In Alaska, guests will receive $100 ($50 per person) to spend on glacier hiking, dog sledding or other Alaskan shore excursions.
In addition, those guests booking Europe or Japan cruises will receive up to $100 per stateroom in free onboard spending money and up to $50 per stateroom for those booking Alaska cruises and land and sea vacation packages, to use toward a relaxing massage, refreshing poolside cocktails, or even limited 50th Anniversary keepsake items.
