Penang Remains A Favorite Port of Call

Princess Cruises has announced it will continue to feature Penang as a port of call for its homeporting seasons out of Singapore for 2017-2018. Diamond Princess will make eight visits to Penang this season and Sapphire Princess will follow with another eight calls for the next. The pair will bring over 40,000 guests for two seasons.

‘Penang has become one of our guests’ favorite port of calls, with over 80% of guests disembarking the ship when they visit Penang to enjoy the wonderful local food, great shopping and charming sight-seeing attractions,’ said Farriek Tawfik, director of Southeast Asia, Princess Cruises.

Guests from Penang and northern Malaysia will continue to have the option of boarding the ship from Port Swettenham on her Southeast Asian voyages. Penang is set to welcome Majestic Princess on a maiden call in June, the vessel’s first stop in Southeast Asia.
