SANTA CLARITA — Princess Cruises’ 2020 Europe season will be an exciting one indeed, with a brand new ship and a full lineup of voyages offered from March through November.
In total, five ships will offer 67 itineraries ranging from four to 33 days to 120 European destinations in 37 countries. The season will also see the debut of the cruise line’s newest ship, Enchanted Princess, in the Mediterranean. Cruises go on sale on Nov. 8, 2018.
As the fifth Royal-class ship in the line’s fleet, the Enchanted Princess will be named in the U.K. and debut in Rome on July 11, 2020. It will sail a variety of cruises ranging from seven to 22 days from Rome, Athens and Barcelona.
“Our 2020 Europe lineup is epic with the debut of Enchanted Princess in the Mediterranean,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president. “Some of my fondest travel memories are from my many cruises throughout Europe. I always see something new, learn from the locals and of course, delight in the regional cuisines. We have so many cruise options to enjoy the rich history and diverse cultures whether it’s your first visit to Europe or your return.”
The 2020 Europe program also marks the return to the Holy Land with visits to Jerusalem, Galilee and more. Island Princess will join the Europe fleet with voyages in the Mediterranean and North Europe, including two opportunities to view the Northern Lights in the late fall. Plus, Crown Princess will also sail Norway, Iceland and Greenland.
Northern Europe highlights will include a pair of debuts: Sky Princess will sail its first season on the 11-day ‘Scandinavia & Russia’ itinerary from Copenhagen, while Regal Princess will be all new to the popular 12-day ‘British Isles from Southampton’.
In total, three Royal-class ships will sail Europe in 2020.
Moreover, several Mediterranean and Northern Europe cruises can be combined with a multi-night land tour to create a cruise tour with options to explore classic Italy, imperial Europe, the best of Spain and Ireland’s Ring of Kerry.
