Our owners events in Mallorca not only have the most idyllic of locations, but also benefit from the warm Mediterranean sun. From May through to the end of August, our diary is full of a number of events to bring Princess owners and their guests together for unforgettable experiences and long-lasting memories.
F1 Barcelona Grand Prix: 10th – 13th May 2019
In the early hours of Friday morning our flotilla of 5 Princess yachts set sail from Port Adriano to Port Vell in Barcelona, for a weekend of high-octane Formula 1 thrill. For this particular event, we also invited Princess customers from overseas to join us in Barcelona; this had a great uptake with a number of people choosing to fly in for the event and stay overnight. The glistening Mediterranean waters provided us with a smooth crossing, ideal cruising conditions and even the odd sight of a pod of dolphins en route!
A typical introduction to traditional Spanish food and drink, we dined at the restaurant La Barceloneta on the first evening. The Princess team and our guests came together for an informal meal in the late evening sun, as we recapped on the crossing and looked forward to the weekend’s activities ahead.
Saturday saw the all-important qualification race at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya; some of our guests enjoyed the race, whilst others took a more relaxing alternative, at the Puro Beach and beach club or discovering the town of Barcelona.
Race day was upon us, the sun was shining and the drivers were getting ready for what would be a memorable GP here in Barcelona. Our Princess owners and their guests enjoyed VIP hospitality in the exclusive Princess suite, overlooking the starting line of the race circuit. Over glasses of fizz and delicious canapés, we watched as Lewis Hamilton took 1st place, pushing him ever closer to becoming the world champion. An exhilarating race day was the perfect end to our weekend in Barcelona, with memories to reminisce on as we sailed home to Port Adriano the following day.
This annual cruise to Barcelona to enjoy the Formula 1 GP is one we have been doing since 2015 – it remains a strong favourite within our diary alongside our other customer events in Mallorca.
Cala d’Or Cocktail Reception: 3rd August 2019
At the Yacht Club Cala d’Or we hosted our annual get together in the warm evening sun, overlooking the beautiful sparkling marina. We welcomed our boat owners and their guests for an exclusive cocktail reception with members of our Princess team, including our new Sales Manager, Rob Seabourne. This event is a special one in our diary as it offers us the opportunity to spend time with our owners over live music, drinks and canapés in this picturesque venue.
Camp de Mar Day Cruise: 10th August 2019
Anchoring in the pristine bay of Camp de Mar, there is certainly a feeling of exclusivity. This secluded bay enjoys crystal-clear Mediterranean waters and warm Spanish sun. Together with Princess owners and their guests, we anchored together and enjoyed an informal lunch at a beautiful restaurant overlooking the bay. This relaxed event gave our owners the opportunity to take their time to explore the area, and to gain inspiration for their next cruise.
Illetas Day Cruise: 23rd August 2019
Journeying to Illetas with not only Princess owners, but also Chris-Craft owners and their guests made this event a very special one indeed. We partnered with our sister company, Chris-Craft Balearics, to discover the beautiful bay of Illetas and to introduce customers to each other, to share their stories and offer advice on their boating jaunts. We enjoyed a light lunch overlooking the bay, with a fantastic water toys show afterwards.
