Princess Cruises

Princess Cruises will offer 20 new shore excursions to guests sailing on Crown Princess this summer, including a walking tour in Helsinki and visit to a wine museum in Bordeaux.

Crown Princess will sail to the Mediterranean and northern Europe from May to September on seven or 14-night cruises.

The new excursions are in addition to hundreds already on offer, which encompass all destinations the ship will visit and a wide range of activities.

The Mediterranean

In Italy, groups can tour the UNESCO-protected Cinque Terre, which houses five villages that cling to the rocky Ligurian cliffs. The tour includes a scenic coastline cruise by motorboat.

Meanwhile, in Spain, cruisers will explore Medieval Bilbao followed by learning cooking secrets from a Michelin star chef, Daniel Garcia, at his Zortziko restaurant.

And in France, groups can enjoy a full-day visit to Bordeaux, with wine-tasting in a French chateau, sightseeing, a tour of the Medoc wine region and a classic regional lunch, or tour the new interactive wine museum, the Cite du Vin.

Scandinavia and the Baltics

In Helsinki, Finland, a new narrated walking tour of the city will conclude with a live concert in the Sibelius music centre, while in Tallinn, Estonia, a tour of the historic old town can be followed by a visit to a brewery and the chance to sample six local beers.

Alternatively, groups on a cruise to Russia will be transported to Moscow by high-speed train, before visiting sights including the Kremlin, Cathedral Square and Red Square.


For those visiting the Norwegian Fjords, the new shore excursions include a ‘king crab’ experience in Honningsvag, which includes cooking giant crabs in a traditional campfire setting.

In Trollfjord, a boat tour will highlight the local wildlife, like the large sea eagle population, and puffins and otters.

And in Bergen groups can take a narrated walking tour followed by a visit to a local ice bar for a sub-zero cocktail.
