Recommended Posts

After cancelling all the Sapphire Princess summer 2021 Alaska cruises yesterday, Princess Cruises immediately publishes the new itineraries in which the vessel will be redeployed to Taiwan from April to August 2021. These are all 3-/4-night domestic cruises to various Taiwan islands.

 

These cruises have already been posted on Princess Cruises Taiwan website (https://princesscruises.com.tw/cruise_search), and will only be available for Taiwan residents. You cannot find the details and pricing on Princess website from other countries. I just share here since some Cruise Critic members may want to know where Sapphire Princess is going, after their Alaska voyage has been cancelled.

 

3-night sailings:

Keelung (Taipei) > Kinmen > Penghu > Keelung (Taipei)
- Apr 02, 05, 08, 11, 14, 17, 28
- May 09, 12, 15, 22, 25
- Jun 13, 16, 19, 26
- Jul 07, 14, 17, 20, 31
- Aug 03, 14, 17, 20, 23, 26

 

4-night sailings
Keelung (Taipei) > Kinmen > Penghu > Matsu > Keelung (Taipei)
- Apr 20, 24
- May 01, 05, 18, 28
- Jun 01, 05, 09, 22, 29
- Jul 03, 10, 23, 27
- Aug 06, 10

Taiwan is almost absent of the Covid virus. Recent reports are the island has gone 200 days without a case with only 553 total domestic cases and 7 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic. Taiwan is a logical location for a summer of 3 and 4 night sailings that never leave the country.

Cool, I'm lookin forward to doing some bookings on it.  I have some great memories on the Sapphire!

 

A worthy reward for a country and people who got their at together and can now get about and about and enjoy life, sometimes when you band together and sacrifice you are rewarded!

Assuming regulations don't change, if you aren't a Taiwan resident not much of a chance you could sail on one of these voyages. Restrictions on entering Taiwan are shown here:
