Princess Cruises to the Caribbean

Every trip to the Caribbean offers a different perspective. From one angle, the beaches beckon you for hours in the sun and surf, to soak up rays and swim in the pure, azure waters. From another, there’s history to explore – with colonial European architecture defining many of the Lesser Antilles and Mayan ruins in coastal Central American towns. And, a third is the culture, as each island and country boasts its own unique history and tastes.

Of course, you can’t see all with a single cruise. Princess, however, optimizes each trip to offer an extensive range of ports for each Caribbean itinerary and excursions that let you explore each facet listed above – and many more.

Types of Trips

Princess covers the Caribbean region with seven ships, all offering a combination of Princess’ standard features, from elegant dining and staterooms with balconies to Movies Under The Stars and adults-only relaxation space The Sanctuary: • Caribbean Princess • Regal Princess • Island Princess • Ruby Princess • Emerald Princess • Royal Princess • Ocean Princess

On board any of these ships, Princess’ Caribbean cruises vary in length. If you’re looking for just a small taste of the region, consider a getaway cruise, which lasts three to five days and covers ports in either eastern or western regions. Longer cruises last at least seven days.


Princess offers the standard three types of Caribbean itineraries, with several ports and sites open for exploration in the process:

Eastern: There’s an emphasis on the European colonial architecture, which you’ll find in several ports upon departing Ft. Lauderdale. But that’s hardly all you’ll see. Excursions take travelers to volcanoes, rainforests, and coral reefs, or simply to relax on the beach.

While itineraries vary, these trips tend to stop in the following locations: Antigua, Turks and Caicos Islands, St. Maarten, St. Lucia, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, and Barbados.

As well, Princess has its own private getaway, Princess Cays©. Spend your time snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, or relaxing in your own private cabana.

Western: Get a perspective on tropical jungles and ancient ruins – neither of which are far from the beaches and coral reefs characterizing this region. Cruise ships leave from Houston or Ft. Lauderdale to then go along the coast of Central America to Cozumel, Mexico, Belize, and Roatan, Honduras.

Southern: The southern area of the Caribbean gets close to South America, and its landscapes change in the process. The sun appears to illuminate the beaches more, while the water takes on an aquamarine shade. While you’ll still have a chance to relax on the beach or snorkel to see the coral reefs and tropical fish, why do just that? This Caribbean itinerary from Princess offers you the chance to tour old plantations, go to Arikok National Park, or even see an ostrich farm.

Princess’ southern Caribbean cruises leave from Ft. Lauderdale and then proceed to Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Dominica, Grenada, and its own Princess Cays©.
