Memorable holidays at sea

Princess Cruises’ newest ship, Sky Princess, will be launched in the Mediterranean in less than 60 days and offer cruises around this exotic region that departs from a choice of three ports – Athens (Greece), Barcelona (Spain) and Rome (Italy) from October 20 through December.

Guests can choose from a variety of seven-to 28-night cruises where Sky Princess will visit picturesque destinations such as Italy, Spain, Greece, France, Malta, Gibraltar, Montenegro and Portugal.

“Cruising in the Mediterranean and Europe is very popular globally because a seven-night cruise can take you to five to six destinations in one trip,” said Director Southeast Asia, Princess Cruises Farriek Tawfik.

“Cruising is very convenient as you need to unpack only once and wake up in a new destination

every morning. Cruising is also more affordable than a land holiday, as accommodation and food have been taken care.”

In April 2020, Sky Princess will depart for Northern Europe to offer Scandinavia and Russia cruises that depart from Copenhagen (Denmark), Berlin (Germany) and St Petersburg (Russia) until September, 2020.
