111 days visiting 51 ports. Island Princess will sail more than 33,000 nautical miles in 111 days.
Princess Cruise has announced their 2024 World Cruise and rather than compete with Royal Caribbean for the longest cruise, they are now sailing a world cruise with the largest ship, the Island Princess.
However, it will not be the largest by much. Royal Caribbean's Serenade of the Seas weighs 90,090 tons and can carry 2100 guests and the Island is 92, 882 tons and can carry 2200.
Deanna Austin, Princess Cruises chief commercial officer said in a statement “Embarking on a Princess World Cruise to experience the globe’s marquis ports and hidden gems, where all the planning is done by the Princess destination experts, easily turns adventurous world travel dreams into a reality,” said Deanna Austin, Princess Cruises chief commercial officer. “And with MedallionClass, cruising is effortless, personalized and easy to stay connected from afar to loved ones back home or even to the office.” Here is some more information on the World Voyage.
