California welcomed its latest cruise ship addition with the arrival of the Royal Princess, which will homeport at the Port of Los Angeles as it brings cruisers to destinations in Mexico, California, and Alaska.
The Princess Cruises vessel making its maiden call to the Port of Los Angeles marks the beginning of the cruise line’s biggest West Coast cruise season to date. The 3,560-guest Royal Princess will sail weekly to the Mexican Riviera from Los Angeles (San Pedro) now through April 27, before heading north to Vancouver for a season of Alaska cruises. In September, the ship will return to Los Angeles, where it will homeport for six months, continuing cruises to Alaska, the Mexican Riviera and the California coast.
Royal Princess is a MedallionClass ship powered by the OceanMedallion, a wearable device designed to deliver a hassle-free, personalized vacation. Other features aboard the Royal Princess include the atrium or “Piazza,” offering entertainment and culinary delights; the overwater SeaWalk—a 60-ft. glass walkway standing 128 ft. above the ocean; the Lotus Spa, and the adults-only Retreat Pool and Sanctuary.
