Officials from Princess Cruises announced Thursday that the Caribbean Princess ship will enter drydock in Freeport, Bahamas, for a two-week, multi-million-dollar renovation project between March 26 and April 6.
Once the renovations are completed, the Caribbean Princess will now feature a Camp Discovery Youth & Teen Center and upgraded ‘Movies Under the Stars’ events, which will be available for the upcoming summer and fall seasons.
In addition, the Caribbean Princess will also be wired for the launch of the Ocean Medallion program in time for the 2018 summer Caribbean season.
“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,” Princess Cruises president Jan Swartz said in a statement.
Family-friendly renovations to the Caribbean Princess will include the new Camp Discovery Center, The Treehouse center, The Lodge center and The Beach House lounge.

The upgrades during the drydock will also include 87 interconnecting staterooms to offer more room and comfort for all family members, plus 3,200 new Princess Luxury beds and improved Club Class Mini-Suites.
Princess Cruises will be announcing further information about enhancements in the near future.
Once upgrades are completed, the Caribbean Princess will spend the summer in Europe before moving to the Caribbean. For the first time in four years, Princess Cruises will offer summer Caribbean cruises (for 2018), with Caribbean Princess serving the Eastern and Western Caribbean.
