Developed with board-certified sleep expert Dr. Michael Breus and HGTV designer Candice Olson.


At Princess Cruises, we're committed to ensuring our guests come back from their vacation feeling refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated. That's why with your overall wellness in mind, we've collaborated with leading experts in both the science and beauty of sleep to develop the new Princess Luxury Beds. And with over 44,000 beds rolling out to every stateroom across the fleet through 2019, we're thrilled to deliver the ultimate night of sleep for our guests!*

restful nights 


The Princess Luxury Bed was created in conjunction withDr. Michael Breus —who served as the official sleep expert of WebMD and appears regularly on the Dr. Oz Show—to create a mattress utilizing the latest in sleep science research and technology for the ultimate night of sleep on board.

We've also enlisted the help of renowned HGTV design star Candice Olson to ensure the bed will make an immediate visual impact as guests enter the stateroom, encouraging them to relax and unwind.


Developed exclusively for Princess by the manufacturer of some of the most comfortable hotel beds in the world, our luxurious new beds will envelop guests in opulent style and pure, blissful comfort.

We've invested in ultra-premium features including a plush two-inch thick pillow top, a nine-inch single sided medium firm mattress for enhanced support, individually wrapped coils for less partner disturbance, a European-inspired duvet and 100% luxurious Jacquard-woven cotton linens.


Whether tomorrow brings new vacation discoveries, or another commute to work, a good night’s sleep is essential to making the most of your day and supporting your long-term wellness. Now the award-winning bed created to give Princess Cruises guests the most restful nights at sea is available for your own home. Make the hours you sleep some of the most productive of every day.


According to board-certified sleep expert Dr. Michael Breus, "It's important to remember that above all, sleep is a sensory experience. In fact, all five of your senses must be prepared for slumber in order for sleep to come easily and last all night long." To prepare our guests for the ultimate night of sleep at sea, we consulted with Dr. Breus to optimize our staterooms for a sleep-friendly sensory experience.


"It's important to have a sleep system that cradles you in comfort while providing good support. It’s the mattress, pillow, sheets, duvet, everything. And don’t forget the gentle rocking motion of the ship."

  • We developed The Princess Luxury Bed for optimal sleep with Dr. Michael Breus.
  • We worked with HGTV guru Candice Olson to design premium linens for The Princess Luxury Bed.
  • The gentle rocking motion of our ships has been scientifically proven to help you sleep.
  • Our crew can adjust your stateroom thermostat for optimal sleep temperature.
  • Find a personalized pillow and pillow-top menu in your stateroom, featuring The Dreampad, a pillow that uses patented technology to deliver music through gentle vibration, which stimulates your body’s relaxation response and allows you to reduce anxiety and fall asleep.


"Almost no other sense can affect your sleep like sight, or light. We know that your ability to fall asleep and stay asleep is directly related to how much or what type of light is in your stateroom."

  • Morning sunlight from your Princess balcony resets your internal clock and reduces jet lag.
  • Princess provides blackout curtains to block outdoor light and foster melatonin production.
  • At turndown you'll find Dr. Breus SLEEP tips plus local sleep habits for the destinations you'll visit.
  • We offer eye shades to shield your eyes from light which inhibits sleep.


"If it is a snoring bed partner, or your environment, sound affects your sleep. Did you know that the sound of the ocean is one of the only sounds known to help lull you into a blissful slumber?"

  • Tune into the SLEEP Channel on your stateroom TV for relaxing music by MusiCure* (presented by Scandic Health LLC), proven to help you fall asleep based on years of evidence-based medical research.
  • Princess provides guided SLEEP meditation audio from Dr. Breus to induce sleep.
  • We offer ear plugs to block out noises which interrupt sleep–like a snoring bed partner!


"Never underestimate the power of your nose! Aromatherapy has been scientifically proven to help a person relax. And with that relaxation comes a great night’s sleep."

  • Available upon request, Princess dusts your linens with the soothing scent of lavender.


"What we eat affects our sleep - it is as simple as that. Look for SLEEP-friendly evening meals and snacks on our room service menu."

  • Discover sensible evening food options noted on our room service menu.
  • We offer calming teas such as chamomile and Dr. Breus' banana tea as seen on the Dr. Oz Show.

Complimentary for guests in Full Suites. Select items available for nominal fee for all other guests.
