Princess Cruises will operate its biggest season ever sailing out of the UK and Europe for 2020. The cruise line’s newest ship Enchanted Princess will also hold its naming ceremony in Southampton in late June 2020 and will sail out of the Mediterranean after its naming ceremony.
For the first time ever, three ships in the Princess Cruises fleet will sail a full season out of Southampton:
- Crown Princess will sail for more than 150 days out of Southampton between May and November to the Mediterranean, Canary Islands and northern Europe;
- Island Princess will spend June to October sailing from Southampton to northern Europe
- Regal Princess will sail out of the UK’s largest cruise port from May to September
When Sky Princess launches next year, it will spend its first spring and summer season sailing Scandinavia and Russia roundtrip from Copenhagen.
Tony Roberts, vice president Princess Cruises UK and Europe, said:
We have seen great demand for sailings from the UK and it continues to be really strong. We have great support from the trade.
The UK-based ships, Crown Princess and Island Princess, will go on sale 9am on Thursday, November 8, with the rest of Europe, Caribbean and Canada & New England sailings available from 5pm the same day. Alaska and Japan voyages are on sale from Thursday, November 15, at 5pm.
