Enchanted Princess, Sky Princess, Regal Princess, Caribbean Princess, Island Princess, and Emerald Princess will be deployed in the Caribbean and Panama Canal for the 2022/23 season.

The inclusion of Enchanted Princess in the mix is particularly exciting as she’s Princess Cruises’ newest ship. Delivered last year, but unable to sail any passengers cruises due to the pandemic, she is now expected to enter service later this year.

Princess last month revealed some of the new dining experiences that will debut aboard Enchanted Princess.

The Caribbean cruises will be operated roundtrip out of Fort Lauderdale, visiting 24 island in total. Highlights include St. Maarten, Belize, Grand Cayman, Curacao, Barbado and more.

Princess’ private island, Princess Cays, is also included as part of the cruise line’s Eastern, Western, and Southern Caribbean itineraries.

For its Panama Canal itineraries, Princess Cruises will deploy Caribbean Princess, Emerald Princess, Island Princess, and Ruby Princess on six itineraries with 26 cruises in total.

Princess Cruises West Coast itineraries will feature six ships, including the new Discovery Princess, with 78 cruises on 19 roundtrip itineraries from Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver.
