Princess Cruises is offering 25 itineraries on the Sapphire Princess when it heads to Singapore for four months starting in fall 2014.

Travelers can choose from 3-, 4-, 5-, 7-, 10- or 11-day itineraries calling at seven countries and 16 ports in Asia. Guests can also combine itineraries up to 21 days in length.

“Princess Cruises will be the first premium cruise line to have ships based in Singapore for an extended period,” says Alan Buckelew, president and CEO. “Our new Singapore-based deployment features superior itineraries specifically designed for the regional market, which we believe will prove extremely popular and will help to introduce cruise vacations to a growing number of Southeast Asia vacationers.”

Examples of itineraries include 5-day Thailand, stopping in Bangkok and Ko Samui; 10-day Indonesia, with calls in Jakarta, Bali, Komodo Island and Lombok; 4-day Malaysia, calling at Penang, Langkawi and Kuala Lumpur; and 11-day Southeast Asia, stopping in Bandar Seri Begawan, Nha Trang, Ho Chi Minh City, Sihanoukville, Bangkok and Ko Samui.

Rates range from $445 to $3,198 pp dbl. For more information, visit princess.com.
