50 years of cruising with Princess

Princess Cruises celebrates turning 50 next year with a short video showcasing the line’s evolution.

Starting in 1965 with the launch of its inaugural vessel, Princess Patricia, the video takes viewers through the line’s role in popular TV series, ‘The Love Boat’ and ends with a glimpse of the entertainment and lifestyle aboard its current 18-ship fleet.

Next year, Princess will celebrate 50 years of cruising with a nostalgic sailing to Mexico departing 3 December 2015, exactly 50 years to the day that Princess Patricia set sail on her very first cruise.

The 14-day itinerary aboard Pacific Princess will include visits to ports from the maiden itinerary such as Puerto Vallarta, Mazaltan and Manzanillo.
