Princess Cruises is one of the dominant cruise lines out of California. They have a long history of cruises to Mexico, Hawaii and through the Panama Canal out of the state. But only one Princess cruise was scheduled from San Diego.
Princess Cruises is a mid-market brand that appeals to older people looking for a relaxing, easy vacation. They have won awards for their creative itineraries. Amenities on the ships include outdoor Movies Under the Stars, live entertainment in the Piazza, the Lotus Spa, and The Sanctuary adults-only retreat.
The Emerald Princess was the ship offering a cruise out of San Diego.
