The ship is now operating roundtrip eastern and western Caribbean cruises, visiting destinations including St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and the line’s private Bahamian destination Princess Cays. Seven-night sailings are combinable for 14-night Eastern and Western Adventurer voyages.

Caribbean Princess marks our eighth cruise ship to return to service and our teammates are thrilled to be serving our guests back onboard,” said John Padgett, Princess Cruises president. “This ship was our very first vessel to offer the innovative Princess MedallionClass Experience and features modernized venues and newly imagined spaces like The Reef Outdoor Splash Zone that offers a tremendous setting for the entire family.”

All of Caribbean Princess’ eastern Caribbean itineraries visit Princess Cays for a day fun, sun, water activities, and a beachside barbecue. Cabanas with air conditioning are available at the destination, as well as Princess’ MedallionNet wifi.
