Portland Port welcome another Princess

Portland Port today welcomed another Princess – that is Princess Cruises ‘Sea Princess’, and this is not just any call but another inaugural call.

Princess Cruises is a major US cruise line owned by the Carnival Corporation, one of the largest holiday companies in the world, and one of the best known names in cruising and 2019 is their first year operating into Portland Port. Princess Cruises is the fastest growing international premium luxury cruise line and tour company, operating a fleet of 17 modern cruise ships, carrying two million guests each year to 380 destinations around the globe and is continuously recognized as "Best Cruise Line” for itineraries.

Portland Port feel very privileged to be a part of this and to be able to welcome the Sea Princess here on her inaugural visit. This isn’t the only Princess that the Port has seen this year, Crown Princess made her inaugural visit on 30th April and Pacific Princess will be making her inaugural call later in the season on 11th September.

Ian McQuade General Manager – Commercial commented ‘It has been an amazing cruise season so far and to be seeing so many ships on their inaugural visits is a testament to the hard work that everyone has put in to making Portland Port a desired location. To be able to welcome three inaugural cruise ship visits from Princess Cruises in a matter of just a couple of months’ is very satisfying. Securing one call from such a globally renowned brand really is great recognition of the Port establishing itself as a destination of choice, but to receive three in the same year is simply fantastic for the Port and the local area.’
