Princess ex­pands Europe

Cruise Weekly - - News -

PRINCESS Cruises has firmed up its com­mit­ment to Europe by an­nounc­ing its big­gest sea­son on record to ser­vice the con­ti­nent in 2020.

The sea­son will see three of Princess Cruises’ new­est ships, En­chanted, Sky and Re­gal, based in the re­gion, un­lock­ing the com­pany’s abil­ity to launch a series of new itin­er­ar­ies.

Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent Princess Cruises Asia Pa­cific Stu­art Al­li­son be­lieves the ex­panded ca­pac­ity and range of prod­uct in Europe will at­tract an even greater num­ber of Aus­tralian cruis­ers.

“Europe is our top long-haul fly­cruise des­ti­na­tion for Aus­tralian guests,” Al­li­son said.

“Aus­tralians love dis­cov­er­ing Europe by sea, with the con­ti­nent of­fer­ing a rich mix of his­tory and cul­ture that ap­peals to our guests,” he added.

New voy­ages added to the 2020 sea­son in­clude the eight-day Nor­we­gian Fjords sail­ing aboard Crown Princess, vis­it­ing Ber­gen, Aale­sund and Sta­vanger, as well as a 17-day Mediter­ranean voy­age to Lis­bon.

The lat­est Euro­pean launch will also see the de­but of its fifth Royal-class ship En­chanted Princess in Jun 2020, which will ser­vice a num­ber of Mediter­ranean voy­ages.

Prices for a 14-night Western Mediter­ranean & Aegean Med­ley cruise from Barcelona to Athens on board En­chanted lead in at $4,219ppts de­part­ing 25 Jul 2020.
