February 17, 2021 - The corona pandemic is paralyzing all areas of cruise shipping. It is unclear when worldwide regular ship operations can again be assumed. The Princess Cruises offer comes at the right time. The Island Princess will sail from / to Fort Lauderdale around the world from January 5 to April 26, 2023.
The journey lasts exactly 111 nights. On the journey from / to Fort Lauderdale (alternatively from Los Angeles) the ship crosses the equator twice and calls at ports in 31 countries. Overnight stays and particularly long berthing times in the ports give passengers sufficient time to get to know the destinations they visit. Particular attractions and goals are the crossing of the Panama Canal, the South Pacific with Tahiti and Bora Bora. Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia follow. After crossing the Suez Canal, destinations in the Mediterranean Sea and the Canary Islands are on the route list. You can book the cruise here at E-Hoi, for example.
