Island Princess and Diamond Princess are scheduled to return to service in spring 2022 in the Caribbean and Japan respectively.
Princess Cruises has announced an updated restart timing for Island Princess and Diamond Princess. Island Princess will now return to service with a series of cruises to the Caribbean in spring 2022, prior to its 14-day Panama Canal Ocean to Ocean voyage on April 27, 2022. Diamond Princess will also return to service in spring 2022 with a season of Japan sailings. Further details of both new programs will be announced shortly.
Island Princess and Diamond Princess join eight MedallionClass ships – Majestic Princess, Grand Princess, Ruby Princess, Enchanted Princess, Sky Princess, Regal Princess, Caribbean Princess and Emerald Princess – which have returned to service or are scheduled to restart by November 28, 2021, taking guests to Alaska, the Caribbean, Panama Canal, Mexico, Hawaii, and the California Coast.
“Following our successful restart in Alaska and the UK, we look forward to welcoming our guests back on board as we continue our return to cruise operations, keeping the health and safety of our guests and teammates our top priority, said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president.”
As a result of these changes, Princess Cruises is cancelling its 2021-2022 South America & Antarctica Program, and its 2022 World Cruise along with two December 2021 Island Princess cruises. Further details of Island Princess and Diamond Princess’ new programs will be announced shortly.
