Cruise Reviews by Cruise Critic
What began as "the little cruise line that could" has evolved into a cruise industry giant. Beginning with a 6,000-ton converted ferry chartered from the Canadian Pacific Railway, Princess operated the small luxury liner between Los Angeles and the Mexican Riviera in 1965. The line now has 16 ships sailing the globe offering approximately 100 itineraries that range from one to 100+ days and visit more than 300 ports.
The cruise line will add two more ships to the fleet soon. Royal Princess, currently in the final stages of construction at Italy's Fincantieri shipyard, will launch in June 2013. Its sister ship, Regal Princess, will debut in spring 2014.
Princess is part of the industry's giant Carnival Corporation, a merger that occurred in 2003 when Carnival acquired Princess' parent company, U.K.-based P&O Cruises, in a hostile takeover tug of war with Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd. From what we've seen, the operation of the line has, by and large, remained the same, although some repeaters say they are starting to notice the Carnival influence.
Princess' fleet basically falls into five categories. Its Explorer Class consists of Ocean Princess and Tahitian Princess, a pair of identical 680-passenger ships that offer both a cozier onboard ambience -- and, due to their small size, exotic itineraries.
Its Sun Class ships, which include Sun Princess, Dawn Princess, Sea Princess carry 1,950 to 1,970 passengers. These days, they're considered medium-sized ships, with some of Princess' contemporary innovations, such as a high percentage of balcony cabins, a handful of alternative eateries and expanded kids clubs.
Its two 92,000-ton Coral Class ships -- Coral Princess and Island Princess -- divide their time between Alaska and the caribbean, offering transits through the Panama Canal: the only two Princess ships in the fleet small enough to get through the locks.
When Grand Princess, the cruise line's first Grand Class ship, was launched in 1998, it heralded a new era for Princess. Successors, ranging from Caribbean Princess and Crown Princess to Sapphire Princess and Ruby Princess hold between 2,594 and 3,080 passengers. Innovations that debuted with this class of ships (and that were later expanded to others) include MUTS, the Sanctuary adults-only sun deck, and the controversial jutting-out balconies of its mini-suites.
Princess' newest series of ships, the Royal Class, debuts in mid-June 2013 with 3,600-passenger Royal Princess. A nearly identical sibling, Regal Princess, will launch in spring 2014. Signature features of this newest ship evolution include an expanded Piazza; the first-ever SeaWalk, a cantilevered, glass-enclosed walkway; and an interactive television studio called Princess Live!.

Princess Cruises attracts a widespread passenger base, but as its ships vary so widely in style and services, choosing carefully is a good idea. The large and mid-range ships attract broad, multigenerational demographics -- everyone from solo travelers to family groups will find something they like.
Because they're more exotically minded, the line's pair of smaller ships -- Pacific Princess and Ocean Princess -- cater more to mature travelers who want longer itineraries, more offbeat ports of call and fewer family-friendly elements.
The breadth of itineraries is a great strength for Princess, whose ships offer everything from the same-old, same-old Caribbean to exotica like Africa and the Far East. The company sails to all seven continents.
Notably, Princess is an industry leader in Alaska/Northwest Canada. Not only can it boast one of the highest concentrations of ships sailing seasonally in that region, but it is also highly regarded for its pre- and post-cruise land options. In fact, Princess, alone among cruise lines, owns five lodges in Alaska -- close to Denali National Park, on the Kenai Peninsula, in Fairbanks and on the edge of Wrangell-St. Elias, the nation's largest national park.
Princess continues to be a leader in the Mexican Riviera, Europe's Baltic and Mediterranean, and the Far East.
