Princess Cruises Partners With Local Organizations on Shore Excursions (VIDEO)

Princess Cruises has announced a new Global Partners + Local Experts initiative that will offer local-focused shore experiences through partnerships with Cruise Europe, Cruise Baltic and MedCruise. The new experiences launch this summer. 

Through the partnerships with ports, tourism boards, tour operators and port agents, Princess will offer video of individual partners sharing their thoughts, experiences and recommendations about the places they call home. The footage will be used in a number of ways, including before the cruise on direct e-mails as well as onboard for port enhancement presentations.

Cruise Baltic is the partner for Regal Princess Scandinavia & Russia cruises, Cruise Europe is the partner for Caribbean Princess British Isles cruises, and MedCruise is the partner for Royal Princess Mediterranean sailings. All three programs will debut during the upcoming 2016 summer season.
