Princess Cruises adds two “Grand Asia” voyages

Princess Cruises has added two more 14-day “Grand Asia” voyages to its 2018 itineraries, with its newest ship, Majestic Princess, sailing between Shanghai and Singapore.

The first voyage departs Shanghai on 25 February 2018, visiting Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Thailand, before arriving in Singapore. The return cruise will sail out of the Lion City on 11 March 2018. The Hong Kong port call will be a late night visit, giving passengers more time to spend in the city.

“Based on the response we received during Majestic Princess’ recent maiden cruise, we are confident she has redefined the international, luxury cruising experience,” said Jan Swartz, group president of Princess Cruises and Carnival Australia. “We are thrilled to open up the opportunity for other guests to experience our newest flagship in our fleet.”

Majestic Princess will start travelling to Asia this month, on a 49-day cruise from Europe. Departing Rome on 21 May 2017, the ship will visit 22 ports including Athens, Dubai, Kochi, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Xiamen, before arriving in Shanghai, its new homeport.

The 3,560-passenger cruise ship will then embark on its first Asian cruise from Shanghai on 11 July 2017.
