On Thursday, June 25, Princess Cruises and the International Maritime Organization will celebrate the 5th Annual Day of the Seafarer, which observes the dedication and service of millions of seafarers around the globe.

During Thursday’s events, guests will have the chance to raise money for their favorite ship staff in honor of the holiday. Princess Cruises Community Foundation also pledges to match up to $10,000 of auction proceeds.

Down the River Thames, guests will visit Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Salisbury. Day trips start at $79.95 per person.
