Emerald Princess became the fifth Princess cruise ship to return to service when the vessel departed from the Port of Los Angeles for a 15 day cruise through the Panama Canal.
When Emerald Princess arrives in Fort Lauderdale on October 30, 2021, she will embark on a series of 10-day Panama Canal cruises roundtrip from Ft. Lauderdale that will go until the end of the calendar year in December 2021.
“Princess has been a part of so many special memories for us,” said Chris and Kathleen Lennon of Monument, CO, the first Emerald Princess guests to board the cruise ship. “This is our 20th cruise and our third time onboard Emerald Princess, and the excitement we felt when we arrived today was overwhelming. It truly feels like coming home.”
