Princess Cruises has revealed more details of its planned return to service in the UK.
The cruises, which will be on board MedallionClass ships, Regal Princess and Sky Princess, will sail from July through to late September. The sailings are only open to those who have been vaccinated.
The all-inclusive ‘Summer Seacations’ will go on sale on Wednesday, March 24 at 8 a.m.
Regal Princess will offer 14 UK voyages running from July 31 through to September 23, 2021. Sky Princess will offer eight UK cruises, running from August 30 through to September 28, 2021.
Both ships will offer scenic cruises and voyages with stops in UK ports- of-call including Liverpool, Belfast and Greenock, with itineraries ranging from three to seven nights.
The Ocean Medallion replaces guest cruise cards and involves a number of innovations around the ships that reduce contact, these include touchless embarkation, keyless stateroom entry, contactless commerce and simplified safety training. Food, drink and retail items can be ordered from anywhere on board.
Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises vice president UK and Europe, said, “We share in our guests’ excitement today as we unveil the details for our new Summer Seacations. With Princess Cruises, the ship is also the destination. Guests can make the most of our multiple dining options, order food and drink poolside, using the MedallionClass app, that can be delivered to you, and enjoy fantastic entertainment both day and night.
“These resort-style seacations offer the perfect opportunity to relax and enjoy some time off. We believe that these cruises will appeal to both our loyal guests who are eager to get back onboard our beautiful MedallionClass ships and holidaymakers looking to experience Princess for the first time.
“While international travel remains uncertain, these new cruises mean that UK residents can take a well-deserved holiday around the UK. We are also delighted that our new cruises will offer the choice between scenic voyages and port-of-call itineraries where guests can visit the historic UK cities of Liverpool, Belfast and Glasgow.”
