Highlights of the program include the European debut of Caribbean Princess, which brings additional capacity to the region, and a new 14-day Baltic Heritage itinerary offering more time to explore the fascinating ports of Scandinavia and Russia.
In addition, Princess sailings continue to give passengers extra time at fascinating ports throughout Europe, with two-day experiences in Istanbul, St. Petersburg, Egypt, and Israel.
