Princess Cruises Reveal 2024 Spring and Summer Itineraries

The Mediterranean is calling aboard Princess Cruises’ Sun Princess!

Beginning February 2024, guests looking to travel to the Mediterranean can set sail on a 10-day Grand Mediterranean inaugural voyage! Guests looking to vacation on Sun Princess can depart from Barcelona, Rome, and Athens.

“When you dream of the Mediterranean, you immediately think of sunshine, endless blue water views, colorful and distinctive architecture, incredible cuisine, engaging locals and romantic settings,” said John Padgett, Princess Cruises president. “It’s a perfect match having our new Sun Princess debut in this scenic region because so much of our design inspiration for this next-generation ship comes directly from these iconic destinations.”


The full European season aboard the Sun Princess includes a 10-day trip visiting popular hotspots throughout the Western and Eastern Mediterranean. Guests can combine the 10-day trip with the cruise line’s popular seven-day voyage adding the ultimate travel experience of 13 or 21-days of exploration at sea.
