Caribbean Princess to Make Big Apple Debut

Princess Cruises will continue its third year of Caribbean cruises from New York in 2008, the company said on Friday, only with a new ship. Out goes the Crown Princess, replaced with the Caribbean Princess. The ship was specifically designed for Caribbean cruising said Jan Swartz, Princess' senior vice president of customer service and sales. Caribbean Princess' summer season will include 11 nine-day Eastern Caribbean voyages from the Brooklyn cruise terminal between May 17 and Aug. 15. One seven-day sailing from New York to San Juan on Oct. 26 was also added. Bookings for the sailings open Mar. 24 and begin at $1,199 per person. Meanwhile, Crown Princess, which will still operate Caribbean cruises out of New York this summer, will be deployed to Europe for summer 2008. Visit [www.princess.com] for more information.
