Princess Cruises began in 1965 and has grown to be one of the larger
and most popular lines. Its ships cruise to all seven continents offering
itineraries that range from seven to 102 days.
While the line's fleet includes several smaller ships, the mainstay is the
Grand-class ships of over 110,000 tons. These ships are modern and
Princess seeks to offer its passengers numerous options so that they
can design their own cruise experiences. Accordingly, the larger ships
are divided into numerous venues offering different style entertainment
and/or dining options. The idea is that not everyone has the same
tastes and will seek out the venues most attuned to their personal
preferences. This also helps to give the big ships more of an intimate
feel and to prevent crowding.
The lifestyle on Princess is more casual than on sister companies P&O
Cruises and Cunard Line but still offers a taste of luxury. In some of
its brochures, it describes it as "American-style luxury."
Princess first came to worldwide attention as the setting for the
television series "Love Boat". It continues this tradition with its own
"Department of Romance".
