Princess Cruises and Port Canaveral officials announced that the cruise line’s Caribbean Princess will call Port Canaveral home beginning November 2024.
Caribbean Princess will offer multiple eastern and western Caribbean itineraries when she homeports from Port Canaveral, the busiest passenger cruise port in the world.
“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.”
Port Canaveral is looking forward to welcoming Princess Cruises and the economic growth the new partnership is sure to bring.
“Our collaboration with Princess Cruises marks an exciting milestone for us,” said Captain John Murray, Port CEO. “The fleet of ships homeported at Port Canaveral continues to grow with next year’s arrival of Caribbean Princess. We’re looking forward to providing a high-quality experience for our new cruise partners and their cruise guests.”
When the Grand-class Caribbean Princess arrives in November 2024, she will offer the following sailings:
- A four-day Turks and Caicos Getaway over Thanksgiving holiday.
- Eight-day Eastern Caribbean sailing to St. Thomas, St. Maarten, San Juan and Grand Turk.
- Eight-day Western Caribbean sailing to Cozumel, Costa Maya, Belize City and Roatan.
- Six-day Eastern Caribbean with Turks and Caicos sailing including Nassau, Grand Turk and either Amber Cove or San Juan.
- Combine any of the eight-day and six-day itineraries for a 14-day vacation.
