Crown Princess to cruise roundtrip out of New York

NEW YORK -- Princess Cruises' new Crown Princess will make New York its base of operations during summer 2006 and will offer a schedule of roundtrip Caribbean cruises from here -- a first for the line.

The Crown will offer nine-day roundtrip cruises starting June 14, 2006, and will alternate eastern- and western-Caribbean itineraries.

The Crown will be one of the first ships to use new cruise facilities at Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos, which it will visit on all 10 sailings That port is being developed by Princess parent company, Carnival Corp.

The eastern-Caribbean itineraries include a stop in Bermuda, Princess' first regularly scheduled calls in the island in three years, as well as in St. Thomas and San Juan.

Princess also picked up a new call in Port Canaveral, Fla., during its western-Caribbean itineraries, in addition to Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, and Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

The Crown Princess currently is under construction at Fincantieri in Italy.
