Princess Cruises unveiled plans for its 2026 world cruise, a 114-day journey aboard the Coral Princess, set to cover an impressive 35,000 nautical miles across six continents. The announcement detailed a route that will take passengers to 52 ports in 28 countries, marking it as the most destination-rich voyage the cruise line has ever offered.

Departures are scheduled from Fort Lauderdale on January 5, 2026, and Los Angeles on January 21, 2026, providing flexible starting points for global travelers.

“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.
