Princess Cruises Announces 2026 World Cruise

The 2026 World Cruise aboard Coral Princess will visit 52 ports in 28 countries on six continents, the most destinations ever visited on a Princess World Cruise.

World cruisers can now take advantage of early booking benefits and reserve a place on the 114-day journey that will cover more than 35,000 nautical miles.

The 2026 World Cruise provides two roundtrip choices, sailing from Fort Lauderdale on January 5, 2026 and from Los Angeles on January 21, 2026.

“This 2026 World Cruise addresses a growing interest in longer voyages that make stops at more exotic destinations, and the urge to do it as part of a more all-inclusive experience,” said Terry Thornton, chief commercial officer for Princess Cruises.

“Our 2026 World Cruise offers our most destination-rich itinerary ever so guests can immerse themselves in a global experience rich with landmarks, ancient ruins, unique landscapes, wildlife, gastronomy, cultures and heritage,” Thornton continued in a press release.

The 2026 Princess World Cruise will include an inaugural call to Boracay, a tropical destination in central Philippines noted for its beautiful beaches and resorts.

Coral Princess will also make first-time World Cruise calls to Puerto Chiapas, Mexico and Ponta Delgada in the Azores.

The ship will visit 52 ports—the most ever offered on a Princess World Cruise—and guests will have access to 45 UNESCO World Heritage Sites around the globe.

The cruise line also promises more time in port with “More Ashore Late-Night” stays at 13 destinations including Singapore, Sydney, and Honolulu, along with an overnight stay in Hong Kong.

Amenities and entertainment aboard Coral Princess

Princess’ onboard programming will connect guests to the destinations via enrichment speakers, destination experts, ambassadors, performers, and theatrical productions that complement the itinerary.

The onboard experience will include cultural enrichments like language classes, dance lessons (tango, salsa, waltz, and more), destination-based arts and crafts, instrument lessons (ukulele, mandolin, and penny whistle), as well as locally-inspired cuisine, cocktails, and wine.

Destination-specific events are planned for the journey, including folkloric shows highlighting traditional entertainment for ports in Honolulu, Auckland, Barcelona, and Lisbon. Destination-themed deck and sailaway parties and trivia games will be on the agenda, along with the Princess Book Club which focuses on novels set in the countries visited.

Guest lecturers will be aboard to discuss topics such as Mediterranean art and history, WWII, and maritime history. Hawaiian and Māori destination ambassadors will also be on hand during parts of the voyage.
