Princess Cruises returns to service in the UK

Regal Princess has returned to Southampton and concluded its first 'Summer Seacation' sailing, which marks Princess Cruises' return to service in the UK.

The MedallionClass ship departed on a three-night scenic cruise from Southampton sailing with guests onboard for the first time in 16 months.

During the operational pause the line made its entire fleet MedallionClass, meaning that upon return to service every Princess Cruises ship offers touchless tech features as well as support new health protocols.

Majestic Princess was the first ship in the fleet to return to service following the extended pause in operations, departing Seattle for Alaska last month.

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 offer scenic cruises and itineraries with calls to Portland, Liverpool, Belfast and Greenock.

Tony Roberts, Vice President Princess Cruises UK & Europe, said: "Our Summer Seacations have officially begun and we couldn't be more delighted to have Princess Cruises sailing from the UK once again."

"We would like to thank travel agents for their continued commitment and support to Princess over the past 16 months. We've waited a long time for the moment when we can say 'we are back'."
