Princess Cruises announced that, for the first time, it will homeport a ship in San Francisco year-round, beginning in May 2013. The extensively renovated Grand Princess will first offer a series of Alaska cruises during the summer months from the “City by the Bay,” followed by a schedule of Hawaiian Islands, Mexico and California Coast sailings during the fall 2013 to spring 2014 season.
Last year, the 2,600-passenger Grand Princess underwent the largest drydock in Princess Cruises’ history, adding a host of new features so that passengers will enjoy the same onboard experience offered by the line’s newer ships. www.princess.com
