Princess Cruises has just revealed something big…
It will embark on its biggest season ever sailing out of the UK and Europe for 2020 and will name new ship Enchanted Princess in Southampton!
Ex-UK capacity for 2020 will be 30% more than in 2019, with three ships sailing a full season out of Southampton for the first time. It amounts to 1.4 million cruise nights on board!
The 3,080-passenger Crown Princess will sail for more than 150 days out of Southampton between May and November to the Mediterranean, Canary Islands and northern Europe.
The 2,200-guest Island Princess will spend June to October sailing from Southampton to northern Europe.
And the 3,560-passenger Regal Princess will sail out of the UK’s largest cruise port from May to September.
Sky Princess will launch next year and will carry 3,660 passengers, spending its first spring and summer season sailing Scandinavia and Russia roundtrip from Copenhagen.
The line’s newest ship Enchanted Princess will officially be named in Southampton in late June 2020 before sailing out of the Mediterranean- it will be the first Princess vessel to be named in the UK since Royal Princess in 2013.
Vice president Princess Cruises UK and Europe, Tony Roberts stated: “We have seen great demand for sailings from the UK and it continues to be really strong. We have great support from the trade.
Once they cruise they want to cruise again. Asia has grown largely from people who love cruising and want to go to new destinations in different parts of the world.”
Roberts has also praised the “successful” introduction of the line’s wearable Ocean Medallion technology; last month was worn by 100% of guests on board Caribbean Princess.
This was the first time every passenger on a ship has been able to use the technology at once.
Princess guests are still waiting for dates to be revealed of when other ships would follow suit, but it has been confirmed that the line’s plan is to make the technology available fleet-wide.
