Sea Princess Makes Debut in the Region with Revised Itinerary
SANTA CLARITA, CA (August 6, 2004) -- Princess' Canada/New England will see a few changes in 2005, including the debut in the region of Sea Princess with a new New York/Quebec City itinerary. In addition, Golden Princess returns to offer round-trip cruises from New York. Together these two ships offer itineraries perfect for viewing the breathtaking fall foliage of the Eastern seaboard.
The two ships will offer 11 voyages, including seven Golden Princess seven-day sailings roundtrip from New York, and three Sea Princess offerings of a 10-day route between New York and Quebec City. Sea Princess will also sail one Canada/Colonial America voyage along the full length of the Atlantic coast. The Canada/New England season will run from September 3 through October 24, 2005.
"These sailings are perfect for travelers in search of fall colors, as nearly every port offers prime opportunities for viewing the dramatic fall foliage of the east," said Jan Swartz, Princess' senior vice president of customer service and sales. "With Sea Princess returning to the fleet, we can offer more capacity than ever on these popular routes."
Golden Princess' seven-day itinerary features stunning scenery of brilliant fall colors combined with one of the line's amenity-filled vessels. A convenient round-trip cruise from New York City, this itinerary features visits to Halifax (Nova Scotia), Saint John (New Brunswick), Bar Harbor (Maine), Boston and Newport (Rhode Island). The ship offers seven voyages from September 3 to October 15.
Sea Princess sails on a classic 10-day Canada/New England voyage between New York and Quebec City. The itinerary features new ports of call in Sydney (Nova Scotia) and Corner Brook (Newfoundland). In addition, passengers will visit Newport, Boston, Bar Harbor, Saint John and Halifax, plus enjoy cruising on Canada's scenic Saguenay River. Sea Princess offers three sailings, departing between September 24 and October 14, 2004.
In addition, Sea Princess will also offer a special 12-day Canada/Colonial America voyage between Quebec City and Ft. Lauderdale on October 24. This extended journey features calls at Sydney, Halifax, Bar Harbor, Boston, Newport, New York City, Norfolk (Virginia) and Charleston -- visiting five of the U.S.'s 13 original colonies.
For those who would like to extend their Canada/New England vacation, Princess offers escorted pre- or post-cruise land tours in conjunction with these sailings, in which passengers can travel back through historic America or spend further time in Canada. Golden Princess passengers can add a Historic America tour to their vacation, which will take them to Washington, D.C., Mt. Vernon, Jamestown, Williamsburg, Monticello, Charlottesville, Gettysburg, and the Amish country of Lancaster. Sea Princess passengers can opt for a Maple Explorer tour, featuring some of Canada's most popular landmarks, including two nights in Toronto with a day at Niagara Falls, one night in the capital city of Ottawa, and two nights in Montreal.
Early booking fares for Princess' Canada/New England sailings begin at $895 for Golden Princess' seven-day voyages and $1,495 for Sea Princess' 10-day cruises.
