Princess Releases Record-Breaking News With Longest Ever Season Sailing From Here

Princess Cruises has just announced that 2019 will host its longest ever season sailing from the UK, with over one million cruise nights available on cruises from Southampton and Dover.

Sapphire Princess will spend 198 days sailing from her home port of Southampton, which will be the longest on record for a UK-based Princess ship; the 2,670-guest vessel will sail on a series of voyages to the Mediterranean and northern Europe.

The announcement forms part of Princess Cruises’ 2019 programme, which includes sailings across Europe, Alaska, Japan, Canada and New England, and the Caribbean.
