Princess Cruises has stated that a roundtrip sailing from Southampton to Canada & New England, which includes a call to New York, is currently its best-selling voyage of 2019. Furthermore, UK bookings are being made more quickly for the cruise than any other Princess sailing during the past five years.

The voyage, which went on sale in December, already has four times as many guests as the next highest-seller. It is the first time ever a Princess ship will set sail on a return journey to Canada & New England from the UK, with the 24-day crossing to be completed by the 2,670-guest Sapphire Princess.

The ship sets sail on September 14 next year, with ports of call including Boston, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and two days in New York. A maiden Princess visit to Rockland, home of the Maine lobster festival, will also take place.

Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises’ vice president UK and Europe, said: “Our Canada and New England sailing has really captured the imagination of both new and past guests alike. We’re thrilled with the response and have received great feedback on both the opportunity to travel across the Atlantic with Princess as well as the specific destinations Sapphire Princess will visit.

“If you’re planning that dream getaway and want to experience everything the east coast of North America has to offer – as well as spend time relaxing and unwinding onboard in our spa, pools and restaurants – this could be the perfect cruise for you.”

Princess Cruises is offering the Canada & New England sailing from £2499 per person*. Departing Saturday, September 14, 2019, the ports of call are St. John’s, Sydney in Nova Scotia, Charlottetown, New York (overnight call), Newport, Boston, Rockland, Saint John and Halifax in Nova Scotia.
