When Princess’ new Royal Princess wraps up her inaugural season in Europe, the Royal Princess will be calling Fort Lauderdale’s’ Port Everglades home for the winter of 2013/2014.
Royal Princess will be docking in Port Everglades this fall after her aforementioned inaugural European season followed by a transatlantic sailing. She will be docked at Terminal 2, which recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation. On her cruises from the South Floridian port, the Royal Princess will visit Princess Cays, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, as well as 3 days at sea on her 7 night eastern Caribbean itineraries.
“We are honored that Princess Cruises has once again selected Port Everglades to homeport the line’s newest and most sophisticated cruise ship, Royal Princess,” says Port Everglades Chief Executive & Port Director Steven Cernak. “Princess has a long, successful history at Port Everglades and we look forward to welcoming Royal Princess in grand style.”
Royal Princess will be debuting in Southampton later this June. She is Princess’ first new ship since the debut of the Ruby Princess in 2008.
