Princess has revealed a new world cruise aboard the Island Princess. The 2024 world cruise starts in California and Florida and will sail from January 2024.

The news of the 2024 world cruise came as Princess announced the cancellation of some of the 2022 world sailings aboard the Coral Princess departing out of Australia and New Zealand.

The 2024 world cruise is 111 days departing from Fort Lauderdale, and the second option is 97 nights departing from Los Angeles.

“Embarking on a Princess World Cruise to experience the globe’s marquis ports and hidden gems, where all the planning is done by the Princess destination experts, easily turns adventurous world travel dreams into a reality,” said Deanna Austin, Princess Cruises chief commercial officer.

“And with Medallion Class, cruising is effortless, personalised and easy to stay connected from afar to loved ones back home or even to the office.”

The world cruise stops at 51 destinations, 27 countries and six continents. The Island Princess will make inaugural calls to some stunning destinations including Mykonos in Greece, Villefranche in France, Agadir in Morocco as well as Haifa in Israel.

In Dubai, guests will be able to spend a night in Dubai and there will be several late-night calls in 11 ports including Auckland and Sydney.

Part of the itinerary includes visits to 25 UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the Acropolis in Athens and The Port Fortress in Cartagena in Columbia.
