There’s no better time than now to experience a Princess Cruise Line Vacation. Princess is rated among the best Cruise Lines in the world, and for very good reason!
Have you been thinking about taking that long awaited cruise vacation? Are you like me and always keeping a sharp eye out for finding all inclusive cruise deals out there?
Well look no further, Princess Cruises always offer great value and some of the best deals to be found anywhere in the industry. This major cruise line is definitely worth having a closer look at when making your cruise holiday plans.
Princess is leading the industry in the production of fabulous new ships introduced to their already amazing fleet.
Check out this short video giving you a preview of their newest ship to be named the Majestic Princess. This magnificent new vessel set sail in 2017 and is the sister ship to the beautiful Regal Princess and Royal Princess.
Taking a Princess Cruise is where you can … Escape Completely!
A Brief History Of Princess Cruise Line
Princess began in 1965 with just one ship, and today is now the third largest cruise line in the world. Their fleet now consists of seventeen beautifully appointed ships and with more just on the horizon. Their newest grand ships carry 3600 passengers ships and are estimated at 141,000 tons. These two ships are named the Regal and Royal Princess.
While visiting Victoria British Columbia, I was lucky enough to capture the Regal Princess docked their in the summer. This port of call is one of their very popular stops on their Alaska Cruise itinerary.

Princess Cruise Line And The Beloved Love Boat
If you’re a baby boomer like myself or even older, than I’m sure you remember the 1977 hit television series in North America – The Love Boat. This popular series virtually put Princess Cruise Lines on the map, becoming a household name.
The Love Boat Hit Television Series
At that time, the Pacific Princess was their starring ship. It was the incredible success of this weekly television hit series that ran for ten full seasons, that introduced the new and exciting world of cruise vacations to the world!
Critics have often stated that The Love Boat Series is what started the cruise industry explosion worldwide.
The company’s unique brand … the “Sea Witch” logo was used back then, and is still used today on all their ships and on their advertising.

In 1972, the Island Princess (pictured above) joined the fleet. It was formerly known as the Island Venture. I recently searched online and discovered a website that outlines a brief history of Princess Cruise Lines up to and including 2008.
For great pictures and much more, I’ve added their link below for those who may be interested.
The Princess Fleet continues to expand, with the new Royal Class – Sky Princess making its debut in the fall of 2019. As well, two more ships are on the horizon with the Enchanted Princess launching in June of 2020 and the sixth and the final Royal-Class ship debuts in 2021.

A Princess Ship Leaving Victoria BC Harbor
I was lucky enough to grow up and live for many years in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia Canada. I return as often as I can. One of my favorite things to do, is to always head down to the pier to walk along the beautiful breakwater and watch the cruise ships come and go.
Hundreds of ships dock in Victoria while on route or returning from their Alaska Cruises Itineraries that sail from May to September each and every year.
All the Princess line of ships are designed with a comfortable elegance, leaving you with that relaxed feeling that most everyone is looking for while on vacation. There are on board programs to suit all ages and tastes, so you can do as much or as little as you like on your cruise.
They offer the comfort of a relaxed, rejuvenating retreat at sea! 🙂
