Overview

Launched in 2004, the 3,140-passenger Caribbean Princess recently received a refurbishment in May 2019 that updated the ship's staterooms, added new dining options, reimagined the Reef Splash Zone for kids and more. Grown-ups will enjoy the adults-only Sanctuary, where they can sip craft cocktails in private cabanas.

Guests can choose from a variety of dining venues, including a main dining room, a fresh marketplace, a pizzeria, five specialty restaurants and more. Lodging options are just as varied; travelers have the choice of Interior, Oceanview, Balcony, Mini-Suite, Club Class and Suite category staterooms. Standard amenities include minifridges, flat-screen TVs and refreshed decor, and more than half of the exterior cabins offer balconies. 

Onboard activities and entertainment range from sports courts and mini-golf to more enriching pursuits, like educational programs in partnership with Discovery Communications. Thanks to the ship's 1,200 crew members, Caribbean Princess ensures that service is a priority. What's more, each guest on all Caribbean Princess sailings now receives an OceanMedallion wearable device to unlock his or her stateroom, make onboard payments, track down friends and family and more.

In 2019-20, Caribbean Princess departs from a variety of ports for sailings in the Caribbean, Canada and the Panama Canal.
