Princess Cruises and American Airlines have partnered to donate a premium fly/cruise vacation package to DISCOVER JAPAN aboard DIAMOND PRINCESS. Bid high to fly high with 440,000 AAdvantage® miles from HRC’s official airline, American Airlines. With enough miles for two roundtrip coach tickets to Japan, these miles will get you to your destination in style. This package includes American’s signature Five-Star Service and Admiral’s Club® lounge access (where available). These 440,000 AAdvantage miles do not have to be used on this trip, and are also enough for 2 award tickets in First Class to Europe/South America.


There’s a reason CNN hails Japan as one of the “Top 10 Places to Travel” and you’ll see more of this fascinating island nation with Princess Cruises – voted “Best International Cruise Ship” in Japan. With an array of roundtrip cruise vacations from three Japan homeports, you’ll visit the top-rated ports that feature UNESCO world heritage sites. You’ll also enjoy unique Japanese experiences onboard ranging from the Izumi Japanese Bath, the largest at sea to local cuisine and cultural events with Japanese-infused entertainment in mini-suite accommodations for two people. Taxes and fees responsibility of traveler.  Miles must be deposited into an active AAdvantage account by 12/31/17.

Value: $18,500
