Cruises from San Juan, Puerto Rico offer a magical blend of natural island charm and man-made wonders. Historic San Juan, once nothing more than cobblestone streets and the distinctive architecture of the Spanish who founded it, is now a modern world capital. And, as you’ll see on Carnival’s cruises from Puerto Rico, it’s kept these classical features! Among the peaceful shaded courtyards and commanding colonial fortresses of El Morro and San Cristobal, urban explorers will find a cosmopolitan city of wide boulevards, lively cafés, highly-regarded galleries and designer boutiques… not to mention gold-sand beaches and nearby rainforest jungles. San Juan, Puerto Rico is where the old world meets the new — and you can enjoy them both when you choose one of our cruises from San Juan.

  • Castillo San Felipe del Morro (a.k.a. “El Morro”) features amazing history and the best view of the San Juan harbor.
  • The Bacardi distillery ® spans 127 acres of land, and over 100 years of history.
  • Vieques is an island's island — literally, featuring amazing beaches and found off the coast of Puerto Rico.
  • Munch on mofongo , a fried plantain delicacy, a staple of menus throughout San Juan.

Princess Cruises to Launch Voyages Out of This Caribbean Destination for the First Time in 10 Years

Starting October 2025, the cruise line will sail from San Juan, Puerto Rico on seven-day voyages on board the Grand Princess.

Princess Cruises will return to San Juan, Puerto Rico, next year for the first time in more than 10 years, sailing week-long voyages from the U.S. territory.

Starting October 2025, the cruise line will sail from the capital of Puerto Rico on seven-day voyages on board the Grand Princess . Princess will plan to sail these southern Caribbean voyages through March 2026, the company shared with Travel + Leisure.

The Grand Princess will sail two alternating itineraries, both roundtrip from San Juan. The first will include stops in Tortola, St. Kitts, Dominica, Grenada, and Barbados, while the second will include stops in St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Antigua, St. Vincent, and Barbados. Each will include a day at sea.

“Our return to San Juan after more than a decade not only reconnects our guests with a port rich in history and charm, but further expands the variety of departure points across North America that our guests can sail from,” Terry Thornton, the chief commercial officer for Princess Cruises, said in a statement shared with T+L. “Puerto Rico remains one of the fastest-growing destinations in the Caribbean and continues to attract new airlift from source markets across the U.S. as well as markets in Europe and South America, which makes it a great fit for Princess. Plus, there are many outstanding options to choose from for a great pre- or post-cruise stay.”

While on board the 2,600-guest Grand Princess ship, passengers can enjoy a mini golf putting course, indulge in afternoon tea, relax in the adults-only The Sanctuary, and more. The Grand Princess is the oldest in the company’s fleet , but underwent a major renovation in 2019.

Cruises from San Juan will go on sale on May 16, according to the company.

While Princess is making plans to return to San Juan next year, the company was forced to delay another 2025 debut when it pushed back the delivery of its newest ship , the Star Princess , by about two months. That ship is now expected to sail in the fall of 2025.

Princess Cruises Returns to San Juan After More Than a Decade

Princess Cruises will return to San Juan, Puerto Rico, to offer Southern Caribbean cruises onboard Grand Princess from October 2025 through March 2026.

The 2,600-guest ship was originally scheduled to sail around Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. Instead, the cruise line is sending the vessel to the Caribbean. 

The 7-day itineraries will be available for booking starting May 16.

“Our return to San Juan after more than a decade not only reconnects our guests with a port rich in history and charm, but further expands the variety of departure points across North America that our guests can sail from,” says Terry Thornton, chief commercial officer for Princess Cruises. “ Puerto Rico remains one of the fastest-growing destinations in the Caribbean and continues to attract new airlift from source markets across the U.S. as well as markets in Europe and South America, which makes it a great fit for Princess. Plus, there are many outstanding options to choose from for a great pre- or post-cruise stay.”

Guests who sail aboard Grand Princess will have a chance to explore five destinations: St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Antigua, St. Vincent and Barbados. They can combine two back-to-back voyages to create a 14-day journey.

“We are excited to welcome Princess Cruises back home to the Port of San Juan,” says Carlos Mercado Santiago, executive director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company. “This announcement underscores our commitment to cement San Juan as the leading homeport in the region, where guests can sail throughout the wonderful ports of the Eastern and Southern Caribbean. Furthermore, the sailings will help drive economic development for both Puerto Rico and our regional partners.”

CruiseMapper logo

Princess Cruises has announced its return to San Juan Puerto Rico , offering Southern Caribbean voyages with the Grand Princess ship from October 2025 to March 2026.

Puerto Rico's capital city provides a cultural and historical backdrop for tourists to explore before and after their cruises, with numerous attractions to discover.

Originally planned for Australia, New Zealand, and South Pacific routes from Brisbane and Sydney , the Grand Princess will now embark on two alternating 7-night itineraries from October 12, 2025, to March 29, 2026. These new itineraries each feature stops at five distinct destinations, highlighting some of the top-rated Southern Caribbean locales - many of which are unique to cruises departing from Florida. Guests have the option to combine itineraries for an extended 14-day journey.

The 16-deck Grand Princess offers a variety of culinary experiences, signature Princess amenities like The Sanctuary/adults-only zone, Movies Under the Stars/outdoor cinema, and Broadway-style shows in the Princess Theater. Additionally, guests can enjoy a personalized vacation with Princess MedallionClass , featuring advanced technology such as MedallionNet (the best WiFi at sea), and convenient touchless services like food and drink delivery anywhere on board.

Furthermore, with Princess Plus and Princess Premier packages, guests can save over 65% on essentials such as gratuities, Wi-Fi, beverages, and more, enhancing the overall value and enjoyment of their cruise experience.

THE BEST CRUISES FROM SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO

Published on March 31, 2020

Royal Caribbean's Instagram for Live Updates

Amazing food, pristine beaches, rich history and culture — there are so many reasons why everyone should add Puerto Rico to their vacation list. That said, ask any savvy traveler and they’ll likely tell you that the best Puerto Rico vacations are cruises. Why? Because you can bundle multiple beautiful island destinations into one unforgettable getaway. San Juan’s cruise port is the perfect gateway to the entire southern Caribbean , home to some of the most exotic isles in the region. From stops at serene St. Kitts to lively Punta Cana, there’s no better way to level up a few days on the Isle of Enchantment than by setting sail on a cruise from San Juan, Puerto Rico. We’ve rounded up some of the most iconic destinations you can visit on a San Juan cruise, plus tips on how to maximize a few days before or after your sailing at this amazing departure port.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico Local Restaurants and Shops

Your southern Caribbean vacation begins and ends in sunny San Juan, Puerto Rico . No matter where you’re flying in from, it’s always a good idea to spend a few days here before or after your San Juan cruise. Make sure to dedicate some time to the city’s old town, famous for its quaint cobblestone streets lined with colorful colonial buildings, its balmy plazas dotted with bustling cafes and trendy cocktail bars, and its old city walls. Stop by the San Felipe del Morro and San Cristobal fortresses for a taste of the city’s rich history, then indulge in a day of sand, surf, and salty breezes at glitzy El Condado Beach or tranquil Flamingo Beach on Culebra Island, an easy ferry ride away. And once the sun goes down, sample San Juan’s famous nightlife — locals here will tell you that no matter where you are in the city, you’re never far from a great party.

King’s Wharf, Bermuda

Bermuda King Wharf Sandy Beach Cliffs

A stop on most San Juan cruises to Baltimore and the New York area, Bermuda is a pastel-colored paradise. From its pink sand beaches to its brightly painted estates, every inch of this island is striking. If you’re into history, check out the Royal Naval Dockyard, where the stone structures date back to the 18th century, or Historic St. George’s, filled with four-hundred-year-old forts and homes. You can also stroll past the quaint boutiques and specialty shops through the charming town of Hamilton, founded in 1790, and now home to lots of boutiques and specialty shops selling local wares. If you’re a foodie make sure you try a dish of codfish with potatoes — you can order it the English way, with a hard-boiled egg, or the Portuguese way, prepped in tomato-onion sauce.

How to get there: you can cruise to King’s Wharf, Bermuda, from San Juan on a 6-night cruise to Cape Liberty, New Jersey onboard the Amplified Freedom of the Seas®, or on a 5-night cruise to Baltimore, Maryland onboard Enchantment of the Seas®.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

St Kitts Basseterre Golden Beach Cocktail

St. Kitts is the perfect island destination for nature lovers. You’ll find the best wonders here are underwater and in the jungles and tropical forests that thrive further inland. If you’re up to a 3,792-foot hike up Mount Liamuiga, you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views of the surrounding land and sea. Prefer to take your adventure under the waves? There are plenty of incredible coral reefs located just offshore that are perfect for snorkeling and kayaking. And if you’re looking for a beach day that feels a world away from reality, hop on a thirty-minute ferry ride to St. Kitts’s sister island, Nevis, home to secluded golden-sand beaches and crystal-clear aquamarine waters. Take it from us — a stop in St. Kitts makes an unforgettable addition to your cruise from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

How to get there: you can cruise to Basseterre, St. Kitts from San Juan on 7-night southern Caribbean sailings onboard Freedom of the Seas® and Enchantment of the Seas®.

Kralendijk, Bonaire

Bonaire Couple Snorkeling in Clear Blue Ocean

If you love snorkeling and diving, you should definitely make sure you pick a San Juan cruise that has Bonaire on the itinerary. This dazzling southern Caribbean isle is nicknamed “Diver’s Paradise” thanks to its abundance of dive sites (there are 86 at Bonaire Marine Park alone), and its many coral reefs also lure snorkelers from around the world. If you’re more of a land-loving explorer, head to Washington Slagbaii National Park, which encompasses more than a fifth of the island. You’ll find all kinds of landscapes here, from sweeping sepia-toned deserts to thick mangroves and placid lagoons.

How to get there: you can cruise to Kralendijk, Bonaire from San Juan on 7-night southern Caribbean sailings onboard the Amplified Freedom of the Seas®.

Bridgetown, Barbados

Barbados Limestone Caves Shore Excursion

This southern Caribbean jewel is a hub of culture, history, and wild beauty, and a must-visit destination for anyone sailing on a San Juan cruise. Most visitors kick off their stay with a stroll through the island’s bustling historic “Town,” as locals refer to it, but soon end up taking their adventure further afield to the rolling hills and emerald forests of the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, the sun-soaked shores of Carlisle Bay Beach, or the crystal-clear streams and pools of water inside Harrison’s Cave, an awe-inspiring system of limestone caverns located 170 feet below ground. Want to bring a little piece of the island home with you? Hit the stores along Broad Street, Bridgetown’s main avenue, and pick up some locally made rum cake (which islanders call “great cake”).
