Princess Cruises has announced that for the 2025-2026 winter season, their two largest and newest cruise ships will sail from Port Everglades. It will be the cruise line’s largest America’s season ever, as they will offer more than 275 cruises from U.S. ports.
Princess Cruises will have both Sun Princess and Star Princess homeport in Ft. Lauderdale for the 2025-2026 winter season of cruises to the Caribbean. In addition, a Royal class ship will sail from Port Canaveral for the first time when Sky Princess moves to Central Florida.
