Princess Cruises unveils new renovation plan for Caribbean Princess vessel


Carnival brand Princess Cruises has revealed a plan to modernise its Caribbean Princess cruise ship with an investment of an undisclosed sum.

Renovations are set to begin on 26 March for a two-week period, and will see the vessel equipped with a variety of new offerings such as the Camp Discovery Youth & Teen Centre.

The upgrade will feature a new HD Movies Under the Stars outdoor cinema screen, the addition of 3,200 Princess Luxury Beds to its cabins, as well as 87 new interconnecting staterooms to offer additional room for family members.

Improvement works are also set to include the addition of Ocean Medallion class to Caribbean Princess, and are intended to attract customers ahead of the upcoming Europe summer and fall Caribbean seasons.

"With new amenities catering to families, Caribbean Princess not only provides comfort and technology to stay connected, but enriching experiences that can be shared together as a family."

Princess Cruises president Jan Swartz said: “With new amenities catering to families, Caribbean Princess not only provides comfort and technology to stay connected, but enriching experiences that can be shared together as a family or in our new Camp Discovery Youth & Teen Center, all renovated with the goal of helping our guests create lifelong memories.”

The company’s new Camp Discovery Youth & Teen Centre offering is aimed to cater to the cruisers between the age group of three and 17. It has three camp and sea discovery programmes, The Treehouse, The Lodge, and The Beach House.

Princess Cruises will offer Summer Caribbean cruises following the completion of the upgrade works, including Panama Canal transits by next year.
