Caribbean Princess is an extended "Grand - class" ship. By applying innovative design solution and construction techniques, it has been possible to add an extra passenger deck. The additional deck is the result of a modification to the design of the ship. The last two decks are constructed in aluminium. Designed for year-round Caribbean cruises. For that reason there is no megadrome enclosed pool area. It was the first cruise ship with an outdoor theater called as "Movies under the Stars".
Nov.15-2017 Princess Cruises was the first cruise line to take guests through the Panama Canal in 1967, one of the world's most coveted engineering marvels.

Marking the 50th anniversary in 2017, CARIBBEAN PRINCESS,is the first post-Panamax cruise ship to take more than 3,000 guests through the newly opened Agua Clara locks on the Atlantic side of the canal.
