Princess Cruises Fleet

The Princess Cruises Fleet offers nearly 20 ships. The Princess standard is at the upper end of the Popular cruise market. Princess ships have been built in groups, so that each ship usually has 1 -3 others that are identical. Ships in the fleet take from 2,000 to 3,660 passengers. Princess offers cruises that appeal to elderly travellers who are interested in visiting destinations while enjoying comfort during their vacation. You won’t find anything close to an amusement park atmosphere offered on Royal Caribbean.

Princess Cruises – Destinations

Princess Cruises operates a major portion of their fleet from Florida to Caribbean destinations. Often these ships will cruise Alaska and Europe in the summer. Then they will reposition to the Caribbean for the winter. Some ships reposition from Alaska to South America. In recent years, Princess has expanded sailings from Australia.

Princess has invested heavily in their Alaska Cruise Tours. These combine a 7 day cruise with a land based tour. They use domed rail cars to reach Denali National Park. Princess also operates a number of wilderness lodges throughout Alaska, including at Denali, Copper River and Kenai Peninsula.
