Princess Cruises

About Princess Cruises

What began as the little cruise line that could, operating one small luxury liner between Los Angeles and the Mexican Riviera (and later Alaska) in 1965, evolved into a cruise industry giant, with more than 10 ships sailing about 150 itineraries around the globe. Princess Cruises’ 109,000-ton Star Princess, sister ship to the popular Grand Princess and Golden Princess, made her debut in March 2002, and the company currently has four more ships under construction or on order. Meanwhile, Princess recently announced the departure of Ocean Princess and Pacific Princess from the fleet.

The cruise division of The Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company de-merged from P&O to form a separate company in October 2000. The resulting new cruise company, P&O Princess Cruises, plc, is headquartered in London and is listed on both the London and New York stock exchanges. P&O Cruises and the new company’s U.S. business, Princess Cruises, are two of the best-known brands in the industry. P&O Cruises is the UK’s foremost cruise company, while Princess is the leading U.S. operator in Alaska and Europe, and has a powerful and expanding presence in the Caribbean. With the inclusion of Aida Cruises, Germany’s fastest growing cruise company, and the group’s cruise interests in Australia, P&O is the most international of any cruise company.
