When I think of princesses, I think of beautiful women in long dresses flitting about majestic European castles. So it seems fitting to me that Princess Cruises is making Europe a priority, announcing an expanded season in the Mediterranean, Baltic, and throughout the Continent in 2007. With 81 departures on 31 itineraries, Princess will offer the most varied Europe sailing options of all the major cruise lines.
One of Princess’s newest builds, the Emerald Princess will make her debut in Rome in April 2007. Her very first cruises will be Greek Isles voyages. The new-to-Princess Royal Princess will offer five unique Europe itineraries, including new sailings to Israel and Egypt. The 680-passenger ship offers a more intimate experience than the four other Princess ships joining her in Europe.
Also in 2007, the Star Princess will sail in Scandinavia and Russia, the Grand Princess will tour Northern Europe, and the Sea Princess will cruise from Southampton to the Mediterranean, the Iberian Peninsula, and Scandinavia.
Princess is already accepting early bookings for Europe sailings between April and December 2007.
