Crown Princess is a Crown-class cruise ship owned and operated by Princess Cruises. Her maiden voyage took place on June 14, 2006, departing Red Hook, Brooklyn (New York) for Grand Turk (Turks and Caicos Islands), Ocho Rios (Jamaica), Grand Cayman (Cayman Islands), and Port Canaveral (Florida).

As of 2019, Crown Princess sails in the Caribbean during the Winter season, and in Europe for the Summer season. Like her sister ships Emerald Princess and Ruby Princess, her Skywalkers Night Club is built aft of the funnel rather than suspended over the stern as a “wing,” or “spoiler”, as seen on Caribbean Princess. Her godmother is Martha Stewart. Homeports are Port Everglades in Florida and Southampton in England.

Until November 2012, Crown Princess was sailing the Mediterranean. In November 2012 the ship sailed to Galveston, Texas for the first time; where she sailed western Caribbean cruises. In April 2013 she sailed to Southampton and operated cruises to Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Canary Islands. Subsequently, Crown Princess returned to the United States to Fort Lauderdale, sailing Caribbean cruises until February 2014.

On January 18, 2013, it was announced that Crown Princess would sail around South America. The Caribbean cruises from February 15, 2014 through April 26, 2014 were cancelled to allow for the South America cruise. After the South America cruise, she sailed to Mexico, Hawaii, and Pacific coastal cruises from Los Angeles, as well as Northbound and Southbound cruises from Vancouver and Whittier or round-trip Alaskan cruises from Seattle.

Starting in the 2016–2017 season she undertook a full season to South America. At the end of the season, she returned to Fort Lauderdale to sail Caribbean cruises. As of August 2019, Crown Princess is currently sailing the British Isles and will re-position to Fort Lauderdale for the 2019-20 Winter season, sailing Southern Caribbean itineraries.
