Princess Cruises celebrated the arrival and return to service of its cruise vessel Majestic Princess at the Port of Los Angeles in October.
The vessel just completed a partial summer season in Alaska and is scheduled to depart from the Port of LA on 14 roundtrip departures through the end of the year. Cruise itineraries include the Mexican Riviera, California Coast and West Coast Getaways, ranging from three to 10 days in length.
Princess Cruises, Los Angeles’ hometown cruise line and leader on the West Coast, sails more frequently than any other cruise line in the region, contributing $594 million to the Los Angeles economy in 2019, according to the cruise line. Over the past decade, Princess had more than 700 ship visits in Los Angeles, the most of any cruise line, according to port data.
“We’re pleased to welcome guests aboard Majestic Princess … and celebrate the ship’s maiden voyage from the West Coast,” Princess Cruises President Jan Swartz said. “We have we been sailing out of Los Angeles since our cruise line first began in 1965, and our guests and crew are helping the City of Angels generate substantial revenue for local businesses with our West Coast cruises homeporting from here year over year.”
Port Executive Director Gene Seroka added that LA’s popularity as a leading West Coast cruise port is directly connected to the POLA’s longstanding partnership Princess Cruises.
“The convenient and premium vacation experience that travelers enjoy on Majestic Princess and other Princess vessels have helped the Port of Los Angeles evolve into a year-around cruise port, and we are excited to be forecasting a record 200 sailings in 2022.”
