Stop into Belize on The Western Caribbean Sailing Route

Departure dates slated for this route are May 7, May 21, June 11, June 25 and July 9. In addition, On April 23, 2022,  Caribbean Princess will also sail a seven-day western Caribbean itinerary to Cozumel, Belize City, Roatan and Costa Maya in Mexico.

Pause in Princess Cruises extends into September 2021

Princess Cruises has extended its pause in operations well into 2021, citing the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) “Framework for Conditional Sailing Order” pertaining to resumption of U.S. cruise operations. So, the line cancelled all cruises sailing through March 31, 2021, and all cruises longer than seven days sailing in and out of United States ports through November 1, 2021. The line says it needs more time to prepare for completing the CDC’s required activities prior to sailing while also taking into consideration the temporary seven-day cap on itineraries that call at a U.S. port.

Whilst Belize only became a cruise destination in 1991, it has become a relatively popular stop in recent years. Certainly, the English speaking population and abundant day activities are among the top reasons why. For example, cruisers can choose to take in the history of ancient Maya sites or snorkel and scuba the Belize Barrier Reef.

Moreover onboard, the recently modernized Caribbean Princess will immerse passengers in the destinations via the onboard “Rhythm of the Caribbean” program.  This includes concerts, crafts, “Parrots in the Piazza” and presentations from shark experts and treasure hunters. In addition, the ship offers the OceanMedallion experience. This wearable technology device offers such personalized services and perks as expedited boarding and on-demand food, beverage, retail and service delivery.
