Princess Cruises Announces a Summer of Sport on UK-Based Ship

Princess Cruises has revealed it will broadcast this summer’s major sporting events on its dedicated UK ship, Sapphire Princess. The 2,670-guest vessel will sail on a series of voyages to the Mediterranean and northern Europe between May and October.

Events being shown include:

  •  2018 FIFA World Cup
  •  Wimbledon Championships
  •  International and club rugby

Viewings will be made available in bar areas and the top deck cinema screen. They are on offer as part of a wider daily programme of onboard entertainment.

Tony Roberts, vice president Princess Cruises UK and Europe, said: “We are pleased to announce we will be showing sporting events this summer to complement the extensive choice of entertainment options already available onboard.

“If you’re a sports fan you can watch the big game from Sapphire Princess’ stunning top deck, your favourite drink in hand, as the world drifts by. And if you’d prefer something non-sporty there is a wealth of other options on board including relaxing in the luxury spa, indulging in wine tasting or catching up on the latest Hollywood blockbuster.”

Princess Cruises is offering a 14 night Baltic Heritage Cruise, round trip from Southampton, on Sapphire Princess from £1299 per person. Departing Saturday July 7, 2018, ports of call include Brussels/Bruges (Zeebrugge), Copenhagen, Stockholm, Tallinn, St Petersburg (with overnight), Helsinki and Berlin (Warnemunde).
