Revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were $3.6bn, compared with $3.5bn the prior year.

In addition, we achieved a six percent improvement in fuel consumption.”

During the second quarter Princess Cruises’ new Regal Princess debuted in Europe.

Additionally, Princess launched its first homeport cruise program from China in May with the start of a four-month series of voyages from Shanghai on Sapphire Princess.
