Carnvial Set to Launch Exotic Eastern Caribbean Itinerary

Carnival Cruise Lines will operate a unique new four-port, seven-day "Exotic Eastern Caribbean" itinerary from Miami beginning in April. Cruisers on the Carnival Triumph will enjoy a perfect combination of diverse and captivating ports of call. Stops include Half Moon Cay, Carnival's stunning Bahamian private island; San Juan, Puerto Rico, know for its rich cultural heritage and historical sites; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, featuring spectacular beaches and mountain terrain; and Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands, the Caribbean's newest port-of-call with world-renowned snorkeling, diving and beaches. This special itinerary will operate seasonally, with cruises departing every other Sunday from April 21 through August 11, 2007.

Princess Dual Christening Event

In a historic first for Princess Cruises, the 3,100-passenger Emerald Princess and 710-passenger Royal Princess will formally join the fleet in an unprecedented dual christening ceremony, set against the brilliant blue waters of the Greek island of Santorini. The simultaneous namings will take place on May 12, 2007 and will be the first double ship launch for Princess.

The unique naming event, featuring one of Princess line's largest and smallest vessels, will underscore the range of ship choice found throughout the Princess fleet, which includes three intimately sized ships. The modern Emerald Princess, an amenity-filled sister ship to the line's largest vessels, will offer a dramatic contrast to Royal Princess, less than a quarter of the size and offering passengers a true small-ship experience. Both ships begin sailing in Europe this April on a series of Mediterranean itineraries, featuring a variety of sought-after and unique destinations, including the Greek isles, Crimean Coast, Egypt and the Holy Land, and a number of new ports on the Adriatic Sea.

This event also marks the first cruise ship christening held in the idyllic Greek isle's waters. Santorini, recently voted by Travel & Leisure magazine as Europe's top island, is a featured call on five Princess itineraries. Both Emerald Princess and Royal Princess will make regular visits to this picturesque island throughout the Europe cruise season.
