Princess Cruises Expanding in Europe Next Year

The cruise line has rapidly expanded its European itineraries for 2008, offering its largest selection yet. Princess' 2008 season has six ships calling at over 115 ports throughout Europe, including eight new ports such as Sarande, Albania and Dartmouth, near Devon in the United Kingdom. Next year, Princess also will sail its largest fleet to date of six vessels that carry between 670 to 3,070 passengers. Two ships will make their European debut: the Crown Princess and the Pacific Princess. Too, the company's Royal Princess will sail the company's inaugural "Classical Europe" itinerary, which includes sailing between Scandinavia, Russia and the Mediterranean, so that cruisers for the first time do not have to choose between visiting St. Petersburg or Florence, Princess Cruises noted.
