Following collaboration with government officials and evolving guidance from the CDC, Princess Cruises has announced more ships, dates, and itineraries for its return to sailing in the United States.
Starting up between September 25 and November 28, cruises onboard eight of the line’s MedallionClass ships will bring passengers to the Caribbean, Panama Canal, Mexico, Hawaii, and the California Coast.
“As we continue our return to service, it is a thrill for us to be able to bring more cruise vacation options to our travel-starved guests,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president. “We appreciate the support of government and port officials who we worked closely with to make these travel opportunities available, in a thoughtful and safe way, for our guests.”
