The Princess Cruises ship is currently on a return leg of a 14-day sailing from Singapore visiting Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong (late night call) and Busan before ending her journey in Shanghai on March 25.
She will then sail to Keelung in Taipei, Taiwan, for a homeporting season until July 2018, offering 3- to 7-night sailings with a choice of more than 20 cruises visiting Japanese ports including Okinawa, Ishigaki, Nagasaki, Sakaiminato, Osaka, Miyazaki, Kagoshima and Busan in South Korea.
Majestic Princess will then return to Shanghai before her deployment to Australia from September 2018 to March 2019.
Farriek Tawfik, director Southeast Asia, Princess Cruises said, ‘We recently introduced these new sailings in Taiwan to travel agent partners in Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia who have shown keen interest in these new cruises.’
The on-board offerings on these sailings will also include ‘night markets’ which are quintessentially-Taiwanese that features a wide array local knick-knacks and souvenirs. The ship has nearly 1,100 sq mtr shops and a Chinese Specialty Restaurant, as well as a noodle bar; dim sum bar; karaoke suites; an indoor swimming pool and other facilities catering to the Asian guests, Tawfik added.
