Princess Cruises has unveiled its “largest-ever” Americas season, which will take place in 2025-2026 and feature the winter/spring itineraries for its two newest ships, Sun Princess and Star Princess.

The vessels will sail seven-day Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises from Port Everglades, while Sky Princess will make history of its own by becoming the first Royal-class ship to homeport at Port Canaveral, offering eight-day Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings and six-day sailings to the Eastern Caribbean.

The year-round 2025-26 season offers a total of 278 cruises departing from seven homeports: San Francisco; Los Angeles; Galveston; Ft. Lauderdale; Port Canaveral; New York City; and Vancouver.

The season also includes a Mexican Riviera cruise aboard Royal Princess, marking the 60th anniversary of the first Princess cruise which set sail on Princess Patricia in December 1965.

“Our 2025-26 Americas program 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 chief commercial officer Terry Thornton.

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 available of the islands’ crystal blue waters and exotic charm.”
