We all love new things, right? It’s exciting to learn about, see and experience them. What’s new with Princess? So many things! NEW summer sailings, NEW San Diego departures and a NEW homeport for Royal Princess in San Diego. Princess has been sailing the West Coast for more than 50 years, and they just continue to up their game each year.

New summer sailings: For the first time, Princess is offering week-long sailings that visit La Paz, along with more cruises to the California Coast and Hawaii.

New San Diego departures:  You now have more choices for close-to-home cruising with a variety of roundtrip sailings out of San Diego. Choose from an all new 7-day Baja Peninsula & Sea of Cortez cruise visiting Loreto, La Paz and Cabo San Lucas. Or venture further south all the way to Panama as Princess debuts their all new 20-day Central America & Mexican Riviera voyage.

New homeport for Royal Princess in San Francisco: Princess’s largest ship to homeport in San Francisco for the season will sail the California Coast, Hawaii and Mexico, including a new 11-day Mexican Riviera cruise with an overnight in Cabo San Lucas. More time for mariachis and margaritas!

Hawaii: Princess is the only cruise line that sails a full season roundtrip from the mainland, with a choice of roundtrip departures from Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver, B.C. You’ll visit Maui, Oahu, Kauai and the Big Island with a More Ashore late-night stay in Honolulu on most sailings. For the ultimate South Pacific cruise, sail on the 28-day Hawaii, Tahiti & Samoa cruise to see the French Polynesian islands like Moorea, Bora Bora and more. 

California Coast: Cruise along the beautiful California coast, with ports in L.A., San Francisco, San Diego and Catalina. Or choose an itinerary that travels farther north to Astoria and Monterey. What a great way to explore California!

Whether you’re feeling the Aloha spirit, yearning for the Mexico experience, or looking to pair the perfect wine with the scenic beauty of California’s coastline, Princess and I are here for you. Let me help you pick the perfect itinerary for your vacation wishes.

Royal Caribbean will be returning to the west coast after a decade-long hiatus. Navigator of the Seas will home port in Los Angles (at the port in Long Beach) starting in November 2021. The amplified ship will broaden the cruise line’s West Coast offerings, sailing 3-, 4- and 5-night itineraries to Catalina Island, California and Ensenada and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico – plus, select winter holiday 7-night sailings will feature overnights in the popular resort city.

“California was calling us home once again, and what better way to reintroduce Royal Caribbean than to bring our next-level cruise vacations to the City of Angels and make it a year-round adventure starting just in time for summer.”

“We’re excited to return to Los Angeles to add bigger, bolder vacation options along the West Coast. With a ship like Navigator of the Seas, complete with waterslides, activities from day to night and a lineup of restaurants, bars and lounges, friends and families alike are in for a memorable getaway.” 

Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International

After a $115 million amplification in 2019, Navigator bringsstar power that will thrill guests with its reimagined Caribbean poolscape anchored by the lively three-level bar The Lime & Coconut; two daring waterslides that cantilever over the edges of the ship – The Blaster aqua coaster, the longest waterslide at sea, and Riptide, the industry’s only headfirst mat racer;the first standalone blow-dry bar at sea, To Dry For; elevated nightlife and dining, and transformed spaces that each are dedicated to kids and teens. The winning combination of these thrilling features and activities alongside Royal Caribbean favorites – against the backdrop of Hollywood Hills – will make for a new short getaway, over the week or weekend, that makes the most of every minute for vacationers of all ages.
