Princess Cruises has revealed that 2024 is set to be the biggest UK and Europe season in the line’s history, with almost four million cruise nights available, up 28 per cent compared to 2023 and 42 per cent compared to 2019. 162 departures are available on 85 unique itineraries across five MedallionClass ships, including the new Sphere-class Sun Princess. Cruises go on sale December 14, 2022.
More than 130 destinations in 34 countries are included, with voyages sailing from February through to November 2024.
Details of the 2024 Europe programme were revealed during an event held in London, attended by journalists and travel agents.
Eithne Williamson, vice president Princess Cruises UK and Europe, said:
“With four million cruise nights available, UK guests will have more choice than ever before to sail across Europe with Princess Cruises, and we hope travel agents are as excited as we are to have the brand new Sun Princess based in the Mediterranean for her inaugural season in 2024.
“Sailings from Southampton remain in high demand, and 2024 will see the longest ex-UK season in Princess Cruises’ history. With three ships sailing from Southampton between March and November, we have increased capacity by more than 40 per cent compared to 2022, providing travel agents with even more opportunity to sell with Princess. Furthermore, the addition of two short cruises on Sky Princess provides a perfect opportunity for new guests to sample the Princess Difference for the first time.”
