2014 will debut our two newest and largest ships in our two most popular European trades. Regal Princess will sail her inaugural season in the Mediterranean on a series of 12-day Grand Mediterranean cruises between Venice and Barcelona while Royal Princess will sail her first season to Scandinavia & Russia featuring two days in St. Petersburg, Russia. Ruby Princess will be based in Southampton on an expanded series of British Isles cruises – more than ever before –as well as a North Cape & Summer Solstice cruise in June. Her sister, Emerald Princess will also be based from Southampton sailing to the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and the Canary Islands. Ocean Princess will sail on a split season between Northern Europe and Mediterranean. In the Mediterranean, she will offer a series of 7-day voyages and new 11-day Black Sea and Holy Land voyages – any of which can be combined into 14- to 21-day, or longer combinations for a full exploration of the region.

Princess will have her two newest and largest vessels sailing in our two most popular trades for 2014. Five ships, including the newest Regal Princess and Royal Princess, will sail from the corners of the Mediterranean to the northernmost tip of Europe on 94 departures on 48 itineraries, to over 120 destinations. Maiden calls for 2014 include Alta, Norway; Salerno, Italy and Jersey, Channel Islands.


Mediterranean, Black Sea & Holy Land
  • Princess’ newest ship, Regal Princess, will begin her maiden season in June 2014 sailing first on two new itineraries; a 7-day Maiden Western Mediterranean from Venice to Barcelona departing June 2, and a 10-day Mediterranean Aegean departing June 9 featuring calls to Santorini, Mykonos and more.
  • Regal Princess’ summer deployment features our popular 12-day Grand Mediterranean which includes an overnight in Venice plus Rome, Florence/Pisa, Provence, Naples (for Capri & Pompeii), Athens, Mykonos and Kusadasi (for Ephesus). Two itinerary options offer the choice of including either intriguing Istanbul or medieval Dubrovnik.
  • Ocean Princess will sail in the fall on 7-day Interlude voyages departing from Venice, Athens or Rome that can be combined into 14- or 21-day voyages. These gems include off-the-beaten path ports of call such as the Greek islands of Cephalonia and Crete as well as Malta, Santorini and more.
  • For the Holy Land and the Black Sea, Ocean Princess will offer 11-day departures in the fall sailing between Venice or Rome and Athens.
  • Emerald Princess replaces Crown Princess sailing out of Southampton to the Mediterranean, Adriatic, the Baltic and Canary Islands.

Northern Europe
  • Royal Princess will sail her first season in Northern Europe on our popular 11-day Scandinavia & Russia itinerary featuring two full days in St. Petersburg, Russia.
  • Princess will offer more British Isles departures in 2014, with Ruby Princess sailing on nine departures of the 12-day British Isles from Southampton, and Ocean Princess sailing 8-days from Dover on three departures. Of the twelve departures, five will offer the opportunity to see the famed Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
  • Ruby Princess offers one North Cape & Summer Solstice departure in June which sails north to the Arctic Circle during the peak midnight sun period around the summer solstice. Meanwhile, Ocean Princess explores the northern waters on a 16-day Land of the Midnight departure featuring a maiden call to Alta, Norway.
  • Three unique itineraries on Emerald, Ocean and Royal Princess will be offered to cruise to the Baltic Sea; all departures include our 2-Day Experience in St. Petersburg, Russia.
  • Ocean Princess returns with a 14-day Iceland & Norway itinerary that visits off-the beaten path ports in Iceland and the Faroe Islands.

Land & sea vacations
  • Land & sea vacations that tour Ireland’s Ring of Kerry, Imperial Cities of Eastern Europe, such as Prague and Vienna, a remarkable journey to the Swiss Alps & Lake Como and - new for this year - Paris & the French countryside.

Nothing mentioned about the British Isles, so maybe that's in another anouncement regarding the CB ??

Thanks, and WOW! Sweet itinerary too with lots of sea days and few ports for 15-nights. Was actually thinking about going back to London and Paris, and this may be my chance. Will have to keep my eyes open for the opening day and see what the rates are just in case.
