Princess Cruises can’t get a break: Grand Princess passengers await coronavirus testing

Royal Princess, Grand Princess to offer Mexico sailings in 2019/20

SANTA CLARITA — Princess Cruises’ 2019-2020 lineup will include the introduction of one of the company’s newest ships to Mexico, Royal Princess, for its first full season based in L.A.

Royal Princess will offer 27 total departures including seven-day Mexico itineraries, plus passengers get more time in port with an overnight in Cabo San Lucas on every five-day Cabo San Lucas Getaway sailing.

As the only cruise line to sail year-round out of San Francisco, Princess also offers Grand Princess roundtrip 10-day Mexico itineraries in 2019. Star Princess will make her return to the west coast in 2019 as well, featuring 10-day Baja Peninsula & Sea of Cortez with roundtrip departures out of Los Angeles with an overnight in Cabo San Lucas.

“Sailing the waters of Mexico honours the heritage of Princess cruising, with our first voyage in 1965 to the Mexican Riviera,” says Princess Cruises President Jan Swartz. “Now we provide guests more opportunities to experience the best of the region through culinary partnerships and immersive shore excursions, all while enjoying longer stays in port.”

The cruise line’s enhanced shore excursion offerings along the west coast take passengers off the beaten path, on culinary adventures featuring the local flavours of the region. Culinary shore excursions are available in Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta.
