Renowned for excellent service and delicious fresh food, Princess Cruises offers affordable luxury at sea. A cruise with them will have you come back new. The American-owned cruise line is one of the largest at sea and is continuously growing. 

Princess Cruises Ships

In June 2013, the Royal Princess was officially christened by The Duchess of Cambridge and set sail on her Iberian maiden voyage. Regal Princess entered service in 2014, holding around 3600 passengers and including the beautiful SeaWalk which gives guests a 360-degree ocean view, along with integrating the largest ever Princess Cruises deck pool.

2020 Sees 3 Princess Cruises Ships Based in Southampton

Fortunately for UK cruisers, Princess Cruises have decided that three of their magnificent ships – Crown Princess, Island Princess, and Regal Princess – will be home-ported in Southampton for the majority of 2020. This means more possibilities to cruise from Southampton in and around Europe to destinations including the Channel Islands, the Mediterranean, Scandinavia, and the Canary Islands.

In another act of appreciation for the UK market, Princess Cruises’ newest ship – Emerald Princess – will have her naming ceremony in Southampton, also in 2020 - in June. With Southampton’s long cruise history, this is a fitting acknowledgement of the importance of British cruisers.
