NEWS IN BRIEF


Princess to offer ship visits at 12 UK ports next year


DIAMOND CLASS: Crystal Cruises has shared the first images of its Diamond-class ocean vessels. The ships, which will accommodate 800 passengers, are being built by MV Werften shipyard in Germany. The first ship is slated for delivery in 2022. Crystal president and chief executive Tom Wolber said more details about the ship would be revealed next year. He said: “We are delighted to expand this celebrated fleet with amenities and spaces that our guests have come to love, along with more choices and new experiences that will take luxury to the next level.” Earlier this year, Crystal revealed the vessels would have a lower capacity than the 1,000 that was originally planned.


Princess Cruises is to expand its ship visit programme for agents next year. This year, 700 agents have been on board five ships. Next year, the programme will include the ports of Newcastle, Falmouth, Holyhead and Portland, in addition to the eight visited this year. The line has just released its 2020 Australia and New Zealand programme, which goes on sale on October 10. princess.com
