Given the ongoing situation in the Red Sea and surrounding area, Princess Cruises announces revised 2025 World Cruise itineraries. Its two 2025 World Cruises will no longer visit the Middle East or Asia, and now instead, will offer new port stops in Africa and Europe. 

“A Princess World Cruise is truly the voyage of a lifetime and after careful consideration with guidance from global security experts and government authorities, we know our guests will understand and appreciate the change to our upcoming 2025 itineraries to avoid certain areas,” said Terry Thornton, chief commercial officer of Princess Cruises.

“These global events beyond our control have necessitated these reroutings but we are pleased to continue to ensure these world cruises retain destination-rich itineraries with incredible stops along the west Africa coast and the Mediterranean.”

Island Princess World Cruise

Sailing from North America on Island Princess, the 116-day World Cruise offers two roundtrip options with departures from both Ft. Lauderdale and Los Angeles. Guests can embark in Ft. Lauderdale on January 5, 2025 or Los Angeles on January 20, 2025. This World Cruise ends in Los Angeles on May 17, 2025.

This destination-focused voyage will traverse over 36,700 nautical miles, visiting 46 destinations in 24 countries and six continents. The voyage includes visits to historic Bar, Montenegro and Taranto, Italy, along with inaugural World Cruise calls to the idyllic Greek Island of Patmos and Volos.

From February 16-April 9, the revised portion of the itinerary departs Sydney and will travel to Melbourne and Perth, then on to South Africa. From there, the cruise resumes the scheduled itinerary starting in Valletta, Malta on April 9.

Following is the amended portion of the voyage:

Those guests scheduled to originally depart or join the cruise from Dubai on March 14 will now embark or disembark four days earlier on March 9 in Cape Town, South Africa. Booked guests disembarking in Cape Town will be refunded the amount equivalent to four days of the cruise fare. Those joining earlier will not incur an added cost to their cruise fare. All these guests will also receive a $300 onboard credit as a gesture of good will.

Crown Princess World Cruise

Departing from Down Under, Crown Princess – the largest ship to ever host a World Cruise – is scheduled to depart Auckland May 31, 2025. Guests can also depart from Sydney on June 4, 2025. This itinerary will sail on a 113-day adventure visiting 42 destinations in 22 countries, across five continents.

This cruise will also bypass the Red Sea and surrounding region, including the transit of the Suez Canal. Crown Princess will travel via Africa instead of the Red Sea and Asia itinerary. The fully revised itinerary is currently being finalized and will be communicated shortly.
