Princess Cruises successfully returns to service in the UK

Regal Princess has successfully completed her first sailing with guests onboard for first time in 16 months.

Regal Princess has returned to Southampton after her first successful ‘Summer Seacation’ sailing and marking Princess Cruises’ return to service in the UK. The MedallionClass ship returned from a three-night scenic cruise sailing with guests onboard for the first time in 16 months.

Princess was the first major cruise line to voluntarily pause guest operations in March 2020. During the operational pause the line made its entire fleet MedallionClass, meaning that upon return to service every Princess Cruises ship will offer features that leverage touchless technologies and significantly enhance the guest experience, as well as support new health protocols.

Last week Majestic Princess became Princess Cruises first ship to return to service, kicking off the partial season of Alaska sailings departing through September 26, 2021. The round-trip, seven-day cruise visited Glacier Bay National Park, Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan. You can read more about the first sailing here.

Commencing the line’s return to service in the UK, Regal Princess is sailing a series of three- to seven-night UK coastal cruises until late September, and will be joined by Sky Princess from August 30. Both ships will offer scenic cruises and itineraries with UK ports-of-call to Portland, Liverpool, Belfast and Greenock.
