More than one and a half million passengers a year are transported by ships of the cruise company Princess Cruises. These figures place the company in third place in the list of leading cruise companies in the world. Motto - Come back new! (Come back refreshed!), speaks well of the cruises of this company, after which you really feel full of energy. Most of the Princess itineraries go through the Caribbean. One of the liners of this company became a real star of television screens - it was presented in the TV show "The Love Boat", after which the name of the company became known to the whole world. Princess Cruises marked the beginning of wedding ceremonies aboard cruise ships at sea.

History

The history of one of the world's largest cruise companies began in 1965 year. At this time the Canadian Stanley Mac Donald chartered the first ship called the Princess Patricia, which was abbreviated as "Pat". The route of the first cruise was along the Mexican Riviera. The cruise ship soon had to be replaced as it was not suitable for tropical latitudes. Princess Pat was replaced by the ship Italia, which departed from Los Angeles to the shores of Alaska. But it also did not serve long in Princess Cruises and, after a couple of years, was returned to Europe. The third ship that sailed under the company name was Flandre, also known as Carla C. The ship was originally owned by the Costa cruise line.

In 1974 the British shipping company P & O acquired Princess Cruise Lines and gradually replenished its fleet. In 2000, Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation created the independent cruise line P&O Princess Cruises, which later merged with Carnival Corporation.

Princess cruise reviews

There are not so many bad reviews about this cruise company. Of the 18 thousand reviews of Princess passengers, 11% spoke negatively. Basically, entertainment on board the liner and food cause dissatisfaction. Positively evaluate the service of the staff and cabins. Not many people were satisfied with the cost of cruises either.

We add on our own that for Russian-speaking tourists who do not know English, the number of interesting events is reduced. There are not so many Russian-speaking groups on board the ships, which adds a small minus to Princess Cruises, which positions itself as a global cruise company. Learn English, friends! And cruise more often! Other companies here.
