Princess Cruises To Restart US Sailings From Florida, California
Princess Cruises announced Monday that it will resume sailing from Florida’s Port Canaveral and Los Angeles’ Long Beach beginning in May 2016. The news comes a year after the cruise line cut its once-a-month sailings from Florida, citing difficulty in operating profitable Florida-based routes. The move followed the cancellation of the line’s winter Florida sailings, which began in November 2015. The first sailing from Florida from late May through late August will feature a departure from Port Canaveral on Wednesday, May 27. Departing on Tuesday, June 18, the line will sail from Long Beach on Monday, July 2.
Princess Cruises, the largest cruise line in the world, today announced it will restart US-bound sailings from Port Canaveral and San Diego, California on March 10, 2015. The cruise line said it made the decision after evaluating the current market conditions and taking into consideration factors including the continued decline in the number of US passengers taking cruises.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are Princess Cruises being Cancelled?
After being postponed last week, Princess Cruises has announced that they plan on resuming their Miami to Los Angeles and San Diego to Los Angeles sailings with some changes to the schedule. The new sailing schedule will see the company stop winter service to San Diego while starting up again in late spring. Passengers onboard will also see changes to their itineraries, with the company now offering a seven-night cruise to Los Angeles and a six-night cruise to Los Angeles. Cruises are typically a family-friendly way to spend time on a cruise ship while seeing sights and having fun. The entire family can enjoy the day together, go swimming, play games, and enjoy the entertainment. However, due to the hurricane that hit the US last week, the cruise line has halted all sailings. The cruise line has said that they will be restarting their sailings from Florida for a couple of weeks.
Are Princess Cruises Cancelled for 2023?
In December 2018 Princess Cruises announced that it would stop sailing its ships in the US due to the impact of Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. More than year later, the cruise giant has seemingly reversed its decision, and will restart the route in 2023. There are a lot of things that could go wrong with the future of Princess Cruises, but it all boils down to one thing: the company wants to win back passengers. That’s why it’s apparently considering restarting service for its Caribbean and Mexican cruise lines from Florida and California, respectively, according to reports.
