A round trip sailing from Southampton to Canada and New England, which includes a call to New York, is currently its best-selling voyage of 2019 states Princess Cruises.

Furthermore, UK bookings are being made more quickly for the cruise than any other Princess sailing during the past five years.

The voyage, which went on sale in December, already has four times as many guests as the next highest-seller.

It is the first time a Princess ship will set sail on a return journey to Canada and New England from the UK, with the 24-day trip taking place aboard Sapphire Princess.

The 2,670-guest ship will set sail on September 14, 2019, with ports of call including Boston, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and two days in New York.

A maiden Princess visit to Rockland, home of the Maine lobster festival, will also take place.

Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises' vice president UK and Europe, said: "Our Canada and New England sailing has really captured the imagination of both new and past guests alike.

"We're thrilled with the response and have received great feedback on both the opportunity to travel across the Atlantic with Princess as well as the specific destinations Sapphire Princess will visit.

"If you're planning that dream getaway and want to experience everything the east coast of North America has to offer this could be the perfect cruise for you."
