Princess Cruises has revealed plans to resume its Southern Caribbean sailings from San Juan, Puerto Rico, aboard the Grand Princess. According to a company statement, these voyages are scheduled from October 2025 to March 2026. The seven-day cruises will be available for purchase starting May 16.

Terry Thornton, Chief Commercial Officer for Princess Cruises stated “Our return to San Juan after more than a decade not only reconnects our guests with a port rich in history and charm but further expands the variety of departure points across North America that our guests can sail from,”

He continued to elaborate: “Puerto Rico remains one of the fastest-growing destinations in the Caribbean and continues to attract new airlift from source markets across the U.S. as well as markets in Europe and South America, which makes it a great fit for Princess. Plus, there are many outstanding options to choose from for a great pre-or post-cruise stay.”

The Grand Princess has adjusted its schedule and will no longer be cruising around Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific as initially intended. Instead, it will offer two alternating week-long Caribbean itineraries from October 12, 2025, to March 29, 2026.

As per the Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, Carlos Mercado Santiago; “We are excited to welcome Princess Cruises back home to the Port of San Juan. This announcement underscores our commitment to cement San Juan as the leading homeport in the region, where guests can sail throughout the wonderful ports of the Eastern and Southern Caribbean. Furthermore, the sailings will help drive economic development for both Puerto Rico and our regional partners,”
