Princess Cruises offers all inclusive cruises for the first time

for-web-RoyalPrincess-1162Princess Cruises has announced that an ‘all inclusive’ package will be available on one of its UK based ships for the first time. 

The offer, which forms part of the Princess Cruises 2015 Europe programme, will be available on ten sailings in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe on board Caribbean Princess. The 3,000 passenger ship will set sail from the UK during spring and summer next year.

Other highlights include a reduced deposit of £99 per person on all Europe cruises and an increased number of sailings across the Mediterranean and Northern Europe.

The cruise line has also revealed that Royal Princess, which was launched by HRH the Duchess of Cambridge last year, will return to the UK for spring and summer 2015. The ship will sail out of Southampton for a series of British Isles roundtrips, including calls at Liverpool, Edinburgh and Belfast. The ship will additionally tour the Baltics on a 12-night tour in June of next year, including visits to Copenhagen, Stockholm and St Petersburg.

Paul Ludlow, Princess Cruises managing director UK and Europe, said: “2015 is all about choice as our Europe-based ships will make 150 departures and visit over 120 destinations. European cruises are booming in popularity and as such we’ve provided something for everyone, including destinations and packages to suit a wide range of tastes and budgets.

“The return of Royal Princess will be a special moment, as it is the first time she will be deployed from these shores after being launched by HRH the Duchess of Cambridge. It is particularly fitting that Royal Princess will sail roundtrips of the UK, as it will give people across the country the opportunity to welcome a ship that was so warmly received here last year.

“With a £99 deposit there is no reason passengers can’t secure the cruise of their choice right away.”

The 2015 cruises will go on sale on Tuesday March 11, 2014 at 3pm. The complimentary drinks package and £99 deposit is available on all 2015 cruises booked from this time until Monday June 30, 2014. For more information visit
