Princess Cruises has unveiled a massive 2025-26 Americas season, highlighted by the long-awaited winter/spring itineraries for its newest ships, Sun Princess and Star Princess. The magnificent vessels will depart from Port Everglades (Ft. Lauderdale) on seven-day Eastern and Western Caribbean excursions, transporting guests to some of the world’s most captivating destinations.

Sky Princess will create history as the first Royal Class ship to call Port Canaveral in Central Florida home, delivering eight-day Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings and six-day Eastern Caribbean sailings.

The year-round 2025-26 season has 278 voyages departing from seven accessible ports via short drives or domestic flights: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Galveston, Texas, Fort Lauderdale, Port Canaveral, Florida, New York City, and Vancouver, British Columbia.

The destination-packed season, which goes on sale on 20 December, features a festive Mexican Riviera cruise onboard Royal Princess, a nostalgic throwback commemorating the 60th anniversary of the very first Princess voyage, which set sail on Princess Patricia in December 1965.

“Our Americas programme for 2025-26 is our largest ever offered, making it convenient for guests to drive to their nearby port or take a short flight to enjoy a spectacular Princess cruise,” said Terry Thornton, Princess Cruises’ chief commercial officer. “Sun Princess and Star Princess will deliver epic vacations and magnify the beauty of the Caribbean by offering guests the most celebrated views and vantage points of the island’s crystal blue waters and exotic charm.”
