Princess Cruises has released its bumper 2017 cruise programme, including the debut itineraries of its newest ship – Majestic Princess.

Europe-bound cruisers can choose from 64 unique itineraries on 153 cruise departures, visiting 27 countries.

Debuting in April 2017, Majestic Princess first sets sail on her maiden European sailings with five to 28-night Mediterranean voyages from Barcelona, Athens and Rome.

Princess Cruises President Jan Swartz said the cruise line was known for offering the best cruise itineraries around the globe.

“Our 2017 Europe season is sure to inspire our guests with our newest and largest ships in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe. We’re especially excited to debut Majestic Princess in the Mediterranean before she officially sails to Asia for her maiden China cruise season,” Ms Swartz said.

I’m a passionate traveller and a first class nomad wannabe. I have a love for the written word and enjoy sharing stories that inspire travel. I like ordinary but love extraordinary. I’ll dance and sing karaoke to anything 80’s, will drink hot tea even if 40 degrees, love food and have a wicked sweet tooth. Architecture excites me, the window seat thrills me and anything aviation enamours me. I’m a perpetual dreamer who lives by Saint Augustine’s wise words – “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”. My intention is to read War and Peace!
