Princess Cruises begins 2020 UK Countdown as Current Season Ends

Princess Cruises has bid farewell to its final UK-based ship for this year as the line now looks ahead to 2020. Following the departure of Sapphire Princess after a season sailing from Southampton, mostly to Northern and Southern Europe, the line will cruise again from the UK in just over six months time with the arrival of the 3,560-guest Regal Princess.

2020 will see three ships based in Southampton for the first time as part of Princess Cruise’s biggest European season ever. A total of 1.4 m cruise nights will be on offer from the UK, an increase of 30 percent on this year.

Regal Princess will spend May to September cruising round Britain, while the 3,080-guest Crown Princess, which completed the same itinerary this year, will return to the UK from May to November. She will sail from Southampton on voyages to the Mediterranean, Canary Islands and northern Europe.

Before commencing her 2020 UK season, Crown Princess will sail a short series of Mediterranean cruises departing from Barcelona, Rome and Athens throughout April and May.

Completing the Southampton line-up will be the 2,200-guest Island Princess, which will spend August to October cruising to northern Europe.
