In 2018, Princess Cruises said that for the first time in four years it will keep a ship in the Caribbean during the summer.

From April to October, the 3,192-passenger Caribbean Princess will sail roundtrip cruises from Fort Lauderdale.

New for 2018, a 20-day cruise combines a 10-day Panama cruise and a 10-day southern Caribbean or eastern Caribbean itinerary.

The Caribbean Princess is scheduled to sail from Southampton, England, on various European itineraries next summer.

In other deployment news, Princess will send a record seven ships to Alaska in the summer of 2018. Departures will be offered from Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver and Anchorage.

In a new development, the Island Princess will feature a full season of calls to Icy Strait Point on every seven-day northbound "Voyage of the Glaciers" itinerary between Vancouver and Anchorage.

Princess will increase its Alaska capacity by 15% in 2018.
