Princess Cruises schedules its longest-ever world cruise to sail in 2025


How long does it take to visit 51 different destinations across 26 countries and six continents?

Princess' massive world cruise will run for 116 days.

Princess Cruises has launched its longest-ever world cruise, opening sales on a mammoth 116-day global circumnavigation departing in January 2025.

Sailing on Island Princess, the mega lap of the world will visit 51 ports in 26 countries across six continents, including the Mediterranean, Central America, Asia, Africa, the South Pacific as well as Australia and New Zealand.

The world cruise will also see Princess Cruises make its first-ever port visits to the Bar, Montenegro; Taranto, Italy; and the Greek Islands of Patmos and Volos. An overnight stay in Dubai and late-night departures from many other ports will enable travellers to enjoy a taste of a city’s dazzling nightlife before setting sail once again.

Departure options are available from both Fort Lauderdale in Florida (05 January 2025) and Long Beach, California (20 January 2025), which will take place either side of a Panama Canal transit.

Travellers will be able to visit 27 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Giza Pyramids in Egypt, the Singapore Botanical Gardens, Dubrovnik’s Old City, the Ancient City of Ephesus and the Monastery of St John.

Princess Cruises President John Padgett said the line was highly regarded for its world cruise itineraries, with 2025 promising to be “one for the ages”.

“Our expert itinerary planners have assembled an unmatched combination of popular ports and off-the-beaten-path locales for a global journey not found anywhere else,” Padgett said.
