Where In The World?

They’re even placing 5 wonderful ships around Europe…

Cruise From Southampton In 2026

Southampton favourite Sky Princess will return for her (can you believe it?!) sixth year in a row! She’ll be operating an extended season of Ex-UK departures from March to November 2026. Setting sail to the Mediterranean and Northern Europe with a choice of 7- to 14-night itineraries, including a very special departure in August. Launch fares start from £649pp.

In 2024 both Enchanted and Discovery Princess offered the chance to view the Solar Eclipse in Mexico, and it was so popular that Princess will repeat the experience in Europe. Onboard the special sailing on Sky Princess you’ll be able to attend Astronomical lectures and events. During the celestial event itself you’ll be provided with special eclipse viewing glasses so that you can take it the sight without risk to your sight!

Majestic Princess will join Sky Princess, and will be setting sail on her debut season from Southampton. The British Isles will be treated to her visits via 11-, 12- and 14-night sailings between April and October 2026. Launch fares start from just £1299pp

Mediterranean & Northern Europe 2026 Fly Cruises

Enchanted Princess and Sapphire Princess will be offering fly-cruise options for the Mediterranean. New for 2-26 will be roundtrip sailings from Civitavecchia (rather than sailing between Civitavecchia, Barcelona & Piraeus) which means extra convenience for flights from the UK.
Enchanted will offer 5-, 7-, 8- & 14-night itineraries, whilst Sapphire will be setting sail for 7- and 14-night cruises.
Malta and Croatia will be highlights from the Mediterranean programme in 2026!
Fares will start from just £799pp based on 20th October 2026.

Halfway through the season Sapphire Princess will relocate to Northern Europe, where she will homeport from Copenhagen. This will be her first return to the Scandinavian port in 6 years! The 12-night Baltic sailings, which include the beautiful city of Tallinn, will start from only £1499pp. Flights will be available from London, Edinburgh and Bristol.

New Ship!

And finally… the creme de la creme of the fleet… Sun Princess will return to the Mediterranean! Cruising between March and October 2026, she’ll be serving up 7-, 14- and 21-night Mediterranean adventures from the fabulous ports of Civitavecchia, Barcelona & Piraeus. She’s the biggest and most modern ship in the fleet, with a host of new amenities unique to the Sphere-class ship. However… bigger doesn’t necessarily mean as busy as some of the other large ships in the Med. With a capacity of just 4300 passengers there’s more space for families, and even a luxurious option available for those looking for exclusivity with the new Sanctuary Collection! Secure you place early, with fares from £939pp for a week! (Based on 25th April 2026)

On Sale Dates

The sailings will be on general sale from 23rd May 2024, so get the crew together and start planning your cruise adventure for 2026.

If you’ve cruised before with Princess and have Captain’s Circle membership, then you’ll have early access to the sailings for a whole week! Yes… the Captain’s Circle Loyalty Week will run from 16-22 May 2024.
