The 2,600-guest Grand Princess will homeport in Singapore for the first time in the 2020/2021, replacing the Sapphire Princess in Princess Cruises’ seventh homeporting season in the Lion City.
Grand Princess will offer four- to 21-day cruises around South-east Asia including Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia from December 2020 to March 2021.
Before commencing its homeporting in Singapore, Grand Princess will set sail on a new 53-day Pacific Crossing & Asia cruise that starts from Vancouver, covering 26 ports before arriving in Singapore on December 10, 2020.
This cruise also offers options for embarkation in Los Angeles and disembarkation/embarkation in Shanghai, and a 28-day segment on the Hawaii, Guam and East Asia crossing. There will be several late night port calls offered in Honolulu, Osaka, Nagasaki, Seoul, Shanghai and Hong Kong with an overnight in Beijing (Tianjin).
Grand Princess will next year join several other MedallionClass Vacations ships offering guests complimentary wearable devices named the OceanMedallion.
MedallionClass Vacations are currently available on Caribbean Princess, Regal Princess and Royal Princess, with Crown Princess starting from July 24 and Sky Princess starting from October 12 when the newest ship in the Princess fleet departs the shipyard as the first to be built from the ground up with the Ocean Guest Experience Platform.
This will be expanded to six additional ships in 2020 – Ruby Princess (January 27), Grand Princess (March 29), Enchanted Princess (June 15), Emerald Princess (August 16), Coral Princess (October 16) and Island Princess (December 20).
