Princess New Segments for World Cruises

Princess Announces New Segments Available for 2009 World Cruises

Airfare Now Included for Full Cruise Passengers on Tahitian Princess and Royal Princess Global Voyages

Passengers who want to share in the excitement of Princess’ two 2009 world cruises but can’t commit to the full 107-day voyages now have the opportunity to choose from four segments ranging from 22 to 35 days. And for those with a bit more time to travel, Princess is also introducing the opportunity to combine segments into “Liner Voyages” of 45 to 80 days in length.

The segments and Liner Voyage options offer passengers 25 different ways to be a part of the Princess world cruise experience. The line’s 107-day world cruises aboard Tahitian Princess and Royal Princess set sail on January 14 and 20, 2009 respectively. Each full world cruise travels to more than 40 destinations on six continents in total.

For passengers choosing to take the full 107-day worldwide adventure, a number of special benefits have been announced as well. Airfare to Ft. Lauderdale and home from Rome, Dover or Stockholm will now be included for world cruise passengers booking a balcony stateroom or above, all world cruise passengers will also receive complimentary hotel and dining charges, and suite passengers will have their mini-bar setups replenished weekly.

“These new segments offer some great travel options for our passengers who have less available time, but who would still like a longer exotic adventure,” said Jan Swartz, Princess’ senior vice president of customer service and sales. “And we think some of the additional benefits we’re offering to passengers on the full voyages will add to their enjoyment of this global adventure.”
