Caribbean Princess (Princess Cruises)


Caribbean Princess is the only Caribbean-class ship by Princess Cruises, she is a modification of the original Grand-class design.

She primarily sails currently from her homeport of Houston, Texas. However she has performed multiple seasons in Europe from Southampton, UK. She is due to sail from a new homeport of Fort Lauderdale, Florida for the 2016-17 season.
