SINGAPORE - Princess Cruises will be cruising to Malaysian shores for its new season. It will also be offering a wide array of itineraries that include Southeast Asia.
The cruise line brand under leisure travel company Carnival Corporation & Plc will be bringing the Sapphire Princess to Southeast Asia for a four-month season from November 2014 to February 2015.
This is the largest deployment ever by a premium cruise line in the region, Princess Cruises said.
"The total economic impact to Malaysia that Princess Cruises' new season of cruise trips is expected to bring is considerable, based on passenger and crew spending in each port, port and other local costs as well as travel agent commissions and marketing costs," said Farriek Tawfik, Director for Southeast Asia, Princess Cruises.
"We are excited to launch Princess Cruises' new itineraries to Malaysia. With its fascinating architectural landscapes and rich melting pot of cultures, Malaysia is definitely an exciting destination for our passengers. Its cultural and natural attractions are bound to appeal to international and regional cruise vacationers alike", Mr Tawfik added.
