Princess Cruises to Call Port Canaveral Home For The First Time
For the first time ever, a Princess Cruises ship will be calling Port Canaveral home. Starting in November 2024, Caribbean Princess will homeport in Canaveral, offering four to 14-day Caribbean itineraries.
The move is part of Princess’ North America expansion plan, as it offers more cruise options from major drive markets like central Florida. Itineraries will include six and eight-day eastern Caribbean voyages, eight-day western Caribbean sailings, and a special four-day voyage over Thanksgiving.
Caribbean Princess launched in 2004 and has a total guest capacity of 3,140.
FBI Arrests Man For Hidden Camera in Bathroom on Royal Caribbean Ship
The FBI is investigating a hidden camera found in a public bathroom on Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas, allegedly installed by a guest during a seven-day cruise from Miami.
Jeremy Froias, a cyber security specialist, has been charged with video voyeurism and attempted possession of child exploitation material. Security personnel found and seized the hidden camera from the bathroom by the flowrider after it was reported by another guest.
More than 150 individuals, including at least 40 minors, were seen in the videos. The FBI is seeking potential victim information and has posted a form online. Royal Caribbean reported the incident to local and federal law enforcement and Froias was arrested.
At his bond hearing, Froias was released to his wife as a third-party custodian and ordered to post a $25,000 unsecured bond.
