Princess Cruises Announces Longest Ever Season Sailing From The UK

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

The 2,670-guest Sapphire Princess will spend 198 days (between April and October) sailing from her home port of Southampton, the longest on record for a UK-based Princess ship. She will sail on a series of voyages to the Mediterranean and northern Europe.

Sapphire Princess will offer 3 new itineraries for 2019: a 24-night Canada and New England sailing that features the lines first ever call to Rockland in Maine, a 14-night Mediterranean Explorer that takes in the beauty of Spanish Morocco and a 12-night search for the Northern Lights that will see the ship overnight in Alta, Norway.

The announcement forms part of Princess Cruises’ 2019 programme, which includes sailings across Europe, Alaska, Japan, Canada and New England, and the Caribbean. The full programme goes on sale on Thursday December 14, 2017 at 4pm with Princess’ Elite guests* able to book a full 24 hours before.

This news is incredibly exciting! I don’t like to fly, so to have more ex-UK sailing choices with Princess is hugely appealing! I know which sailing I’ve got my eye on and it includes an overnight in New York City!

Europe 2019 highlights include:

  • Five ships sailing across the Mediterranean and northern Europe (Sapphire, Crown, Regal, Emerald and Pacific Princess) to 130 destinations. Guests can choose from 85 itineraries on 211 cruise departures, visiting 37 countries.

I can't wait to be back at sea! 4 weeks today and the @fred.olsencruiselines World Cruise with @travelshopgirl begins! #cruise #travel #selfie at Lamanai, once a major city of the #maya civilization. This was my favourite temple, the Mask Temple. The masks date to the late fifth and early sixth century. You can also find the Jaguar Temple and High Temple at this site. If you're ever in #Belize, I highly recommend a visit to #Lamanai - even the boat ride there is exciting! I visited in February and it was so HOT! I thought I was going to melt! Take water! #cruise #travel #CentralAmerica
