Something exciting is heading our way! Princess Cruises recently announced that their new ship, Enchanted Princess, will be based in Southampton for this year’s UK summer season. Starting 4 May 2022, Enchanted Princess will offer 13 new voyages ranging from four to 14 nights.
Enchanted Princess joined the Princess fleet in November 2021 and is currently completing its inaugural Caribbean season before heading to Europe in April. She will join sister ship Sky Princess and two other Princess ships – Emerald Princess and Island Princess – to sail out of Southampton this year.
The 3,660-guest Enchanted Princess represents an evolution of the design platform consistent across her Royal-class sister ships, offering an elevation of style and elegance that is distinguished by the cruise line.
New itineraries include short cruises and longer voyages to the Canary Islands, Mediterranean, Scandinavia, Norway and Iceland. All-inclusive balcony fares, which include the line’s premium drinks package, unlimited MedallionNet Wi-Fi and crew appreciation, start from £499pp for a five-night cruise that departs 15 May 2022 to Belgium, Channel Islands and the Netherlands.
Tony Roberts, vice president of Princess Cruises UK and Europe, says:
Driven by the fantastic response from UK travel agents on having two Royal-class ships sailing out of Southampton in 2021, we have decided to bring Enchanted Princess to Southampton for this year’s UK summer season. We’ve been extremely encouraged by demand for Princess Cruises’ 2022 sailings, with UK bookings already exceeding our full year 2019 result.
This could not have been achieved without our UK travel agent partners. Having two of our newest ships based in Southampton this summer is testament to their continued support.
