Princess Cruises today unveiled its program of cruises to Europe for 2017, including the inaugural sailings of the cruise line’s newest ship Majestic Princess. http://www.exoticvoyages.com/cambodia-toursThe season features six ships sailing to 119 destinations from the corners of the Mediterranean to the northernmost tip of Europe.

Guests can choose from 64 unique itineraries on 153 cruise departures, visiting 27 countries. Debuting in April 2017, Majestic Princess first sets sail on maiden European sailings with five to 28-night Mediterranean voyages from Barcelona, Athens and Rome.

Princess Cruises President Jan Swartz said the cruise line was known for offering the best cruise itineraries around the globe.

“Our 2017 Europe season is sure to inspire our guests with our newest and largest ships in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe. We’re especially excited to debut Majestic Princess in the Mediterranean before she officially sails to Asia for her maiden China cruise season,” Ms Swartz said.

Princess now offers the More Ashore program, crafting the line’s newest itineraries to give guests more opportunities to experience the colour, culture and flavours of the region in 2017. With port calls offering more time ashore with either late night departures (9pm or later), an overnight, or a two-day experience, travellers can see the sights during the day and then experience the nightlife of select destinations in the evening. Highlights of the More Ashore program in Europe include overnights in Dublin and St Petersburg on select sailings, as well as late evening stays in more than 15 countries.
