For the first time ever, Princess Cruises has announced that it will be homeporting in Port Canaveral starting in 2024.

- One four-day Turks & Caicos Getaway departure over Thanksgiving
- Five departures of the eight-day eastern Caribbean itinerary to St. Thomas, St. Maarten, San Juan, and Grand Turk
- Five departures of the eight-day western Caribbean itinerary to Cozumel, Costa Maya, Belize City, and Roatán
- Nine departures of the six-day eastern Caribbean to Nassau, Grand Turk, and either Amber Cove or San Juan
- Any of the eight-day and six-day voyages can be combined for a 14-day cruise
“The combination of a vibrant Central Florida community, exceptional flight options into Orlando International Airport and great pre-cruise and post-cruise experience options makes Port Canaveral an easy choice,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises. “Princess is unique in its ability to deliver incredible cruise ship amenities typical of the largest ships in the world, while delivering personalized service found on the industry’s smallest ships.”
Adding Port Canaveral as one of its U.S. homeports is part of Princess’ North America expansion plan, offering new cruise options for guests in major drive markets like central Florida.
Caribbean Princess features 1,571 cabins and has a total capacity of 3,140 guests and 1,200 crew. The 19-deck ship launched in 2004.
