Crown Princess will sail a single one-way cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Dublin April 2019 as she will reposition to the British Isles from Caribbean. The 18-night trip will offer stops in Portugal, Belgium and the UK.
In the fall of 2019 Crown Princess will sail a one-way 25-night cruise back to Fort Lauderdale. The trip will include stops in the UK, Belgium, Spain, Portugal.
Princess Cruises offered a cruise from Dublin in 2009 onboard Tahitian Princess, that since has been renamed to Ocean Princess.
