Princess switches Sky Princess to sail from Southampton in 2021

Princess Cruises is to boost ex-UK capacity and bring new ship Sky Princess to Southampton next year. Ten British Isles voyages

previously scheduled for Crown Princess will now be operated by Sky Princess on the same dates as a result of the line cancelling a number of the Royal-class ship’s European sailings in 2021. Princess Cruises is also

committing five ships to Australia and New Zealand for its 2021-22 season. Royal Princess, Emerald

Princess, Sapphire Princess, Coral Princess and Pacific Princess will run voyages ranging from two to 36 days. The five vessels will sail to 82 destinations in 19 countries on 59 itineraries. Options from homeports

Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Auckland include visits to Fiji, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia and Vanuatu between October 2021 and April 2022. Longer cruises cover Asia and North America. The Carnival Corporation line

will also operate a 107-day world cruise from the region with Coral Princess due to sail with 2,000 passengers from Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland in May 2022.
