Princess Cruise Ship to Debut Early

October 17, 2013
(10:40 a.m. EDT) -- Princess Cruises' newest ship, Regal Princess, will debut next year 13 days earlier than its original launch date of June 2, 2014. The line has added two new week-long Mediterranean sailings to the ship's maiden schedule.

The inaugural cruise now departs May 20 and will sail from Venice to Athens, with a second sailing departing May 27, returning the ship to Venice.

Passengers booked on Regal's previously announced maiden voyage have been automatically booked on to the May 20 sailing. They have until November 15 to decide if they want to take the new cruise instead of, or in addition to their existing reservation.

Regal Princess is a sister to ship to Royal Princess, which debuted this year.
