Luxury Cruise Guide
17 March, 2022
Princess Cruises has announced new deployment plans for the U.S. with a return to homeport cruising in Galveston, Texas starting in December 2022, and San Diego starting in September 2022. The line is planning return to service in Australia with Coral Princess starting in June 2022 following indications authorities are becoming more comfortable with a return to service in the region.
After six years, Princess returns to homeport cruising from Texas. Ruby Princess will sail from December 2022 to April 2023, on a series of cruises from Galveston spanning five to 11 days, calling mainly to destinations in the Western Caribbean. The ship will also sail through the Panama Canal on two 16-day, ocean-to-ocean transits between Galveston and San Francisco. Cruises will be on sale April 7, 2022.
From September 2022 through February 2023, cruising in California expands with a return to San Diego. Diamond Princess will be joining the fleet of West Coast-based ships with a series of new cruise itineraries ranging from five to 16 days and calling at ports along the Mexican Riviera, California Coast, and the Hawaiian Islands. In addition, the ship will sail a 20-day cruise to Central America, roundtrip from San Diego in November 2022. Cruises will be on sale March 24, 2022.
Royal Princess moves to San Francisco for the West Coast 2022-2023 season, with roundtrip cruises to Hawaii, Mexico, and the California Coast. Arriving in September 2022, after completing the Alaska season, Royal Princess will initially sail from San Francisco along with Ruby Princess. In December 2022, Ruby Princess relocates to Galveston and Royal Princess becomes the official hometown ship of San Francisco for the remainder of the 2022-2023 season. Cruises go on sale April 7, 2022.
In anticipation that Australian Federal and State Governments will soon welcome the return of cruising, the line is announcing plans for Coral Princess’ return to service in June 2022, with roundtrip Brisbane itineraries ranging from three to 12 days and calling to destinations in Queensland and New South Wales. In August, Coral Princess will position to Sydney and depart on a new 12-day sailing to Queensland and the Conflict Islands in Papua New Guinea, before resuming the previously announced Australia and New Zealand program for the 2022-2023 season. Additionally, Majestic Princess will sail roundtrip from Sydney on a new Queensland voyage in February 2023 at the end of her already published season. Full details will be announced on March 17. Cruises go on sale March 23, 2022.
As a result of these changes, previously published itineraries through April 2023 on Diamond Princess, and Royal Princess to Japan, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, as well as two Ruby Princess Panama Canal sailings in February 2023 and select voyages on Majestic Princess in Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific from February 2023 to May 2023 will be canceled. Guests affected by these cancellations will be notified.
