Default Princess Expands Europe, From SeaTrade Insdier

Princess dramatically boosts '03 Europe capacity

Princess Cruises will dramatically expand its European schedule in 2003, with the greatest number of berths the line has ever operated on the Continent. The four-ship deployment represents a more than 150% increase in capacity over 2002, with Golden, Grand, Royal and Regal Princess able to accommodate more than 106,500 passengers on 26 different itineraries with 56 departures and 79 ports of call.
‘We are responding to our passengers' travel interests by significantly expanding our European programme,’ said Dean Brown, evp of customer service and sales. As earlier reported, both Grand and Golden Princess will offer the company’s ‘Grand Mediterranean’ itinerary, doubling the number of berths on that route to 5,200. Regal Princess will operate in Northern Europe and Royal Princess will sail throughout the region on a range of ‘Connoisseur’ cruises.

Regal Princess’ May 8-August 18 season will feature nine Scandinavia/Russia sailings. The 10-day voyages roundtrip from Copenhagen include calls at Stockholm, Helsinki, Tallinn, Gdansk and Oslo, with an overnight stay and two full days at St Petersburg. An alternate itinerary replaces Oslo with Warnemunde, allowing day trips from that German port to Berlin. Regal Princess will also offer a 12-day Mediterranean/Atlantic voyage between Rome and Copenhagen and a 16-day transatlantic sailing between Copenhagen and New York.

Royal Princess will sail an extended Europe season with 19 cruises between April 22 and November 25, and routes including the Mediterranean, Western Europe, Eastern Mediterranean and Egypt, the British Isles and the Norwegian fjords. Among the offerings are several new itineraries, including a 10-day Greek Isles cruise between Venice and Athens that visits Corfu, Santorini, Rhodes, Patmos and Mykonos, along with visits to Olympia and Ephesus (Kusadasi). Other new routes mark Princess' return to the Black Sea, as well as the debut of a new voyage to Norway, Iceland and Ireland, roundtrip from Southampton.
