Crown Princess will sail for over 150 days from the port between May and November to the Canary Islands, Mediterranean and northern Europe. Island Princess will spend the period from June through October sailing out of Southampton to northern Europe. Regal Princess will sail from UK’s largest port from May through September.

Enchanted Princess will hold her christening ceremony in Southampton UK late June 2020. She will be the first Princess ship to be named in the United Kingdom since Royal Princess back in 2013. The newbuild will sail from the Mediterranean following the naming ceremony.

Princess Cruises’ 2020 program also includes voyages across Asia, Caribbean, Alaska, Canada & New England.
