A unique port on each itinerary Each of our three all-new Eastern Caribbean itineraries features a unique port. Fascinating St. Maarten boasts two distinctly different halves — 21 square miles belonging to France, 16 to the Dutch. Antigua is known for rolling hills and spectacular coastlines, with some of the region’s best beaches. St. Kitts is an idyllic paradise — with dense rainforests, jagged peaks and turquoise waters. Each also calls in a brand new port for Princess, Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic. St. Maarten

DE S IG NE D T O IN S P IR E AW E In the Caribbean, there’s so much to see in every port. Yet you’ll also be dazzled by all the possibilities you find on board, because each Princess® ship is a sensational destination all its own. Strolling into the bustling central Atrium, you feel the last traces of stress melt away. In the European town square-style Piazza, there’s a glass of wine with your name on it, a pianist is playing your favorite song, and you feel your breathing ease into the rhythm of freedom. And that feeling will only grow day after day — the sense that this was just what you needed, that you are exactly where you need to be. And you’ll soon find that while each Caribbean port is indeed filled with fascinating sights and new experiences, coming back to your Princess ship is what you look forward to most of all.

And come evening, the options are equally enticing — live entertainment in the lounges, games in the casino, spectacles in the theater, dancing in the night clubs and at our on-deck parties, and Hollywood hit movies on the big screen poolside.
