For the first time ever, Princess Cruises announced it will homeport in Central Florida.
The "Love Boat" brand will reposition the Caribbean Princess ship in late November 2024 in order to sail Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries leaving roundtrip from Port Canaveral (Orlando City, Florida) for the winter season.
Starting November 27th, 2024, the 3140-passenger liner will sail 4- to 14-day voyages out of Port Canaveral.
Itinerary highlights feature:
- 1 departure of a 4-day Turks & Caicos Getaway over Thanksgiving
- 5 departures of the 8-day Eastern Caribbean with St. Thomas cruise to St. Thomas, St. Maarten, San Juan and Grand Turk
- 5 departures of the 8-day Western Caribbean with Mexico trip to Cozumel, Costa Maya, Belize City and Mahogany Bay (Roatan)
- 9 departures of the 6-day Eastern Caribbean with Turks & Caicos visiting Nassau, Grand Turk and either Amber Cove/San Juan
- Combine any of the 8-day/6-day itineraries for a 14-day journey.
Princess Cruises takes pride in being considered the #1 Large Ship Cruise Line due to world-class dining/Broadway-inspired entertainment, delivered at an exceptional value.

John Padgett (the company's President) said "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."
"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."
