Princess Cruises’ 2025 Japan cruise season is now available for booking, offering 35 different cruises from seven to 22 days.

As Japan’s number one North American cruise line, its season, which runs from March to August, offers travelers the opportunity to experience 36 different destinations across three remarkable countries, with a special emphasis on the islands of Japan.

Featured itineraries include a 10-day Spring Flowers itinerary or a new 11-day Spring Flowers itinerary, available only in March and April. It takes travelers to visit Japan’s four main islands and follows the flowering season from south to north, ensuring they enjoy one of the country’s most popular times of year.

Another itinerary is the 10-day Japan Explorer, which takes travelers to some of Japan’s most iconic locations, including Mount Fuji, Osaka, Kyoto and Hiroshima.

Throughout the season, travelers will have the opportunity to enjoy one of four festivals, depending on the sailing period. This year, travelers can enjoy the Aomori Nebuta Festival, Kochi Yosakoi Dance Festival, Tokushima Awa Dance Festival, and Kumano Fireworks Festival, all held in August.

Additionally, Princess Cruises offers land tours that give a closer look at some of Japan’s best sights, including destinations like Kyoto, Tokyo, and Mount Fuji.

“Japan is best experienced on a cruise, sailing around this picturesque island nation passing legendary festivals, flowers, sights and landscapes,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises. “Our upcoming 2025 season features itineraries and offerings developed with area tourism offices to showcase the best in local art, cuisine, music and popular culture.”
