Back in the day, my husband Richard and I sailed regularly on  Princess Cruises from Los Angeles to the Mexican Riviera. How convenient to  drive to the port, hop on the ship and enjoy roundtrip balmy weather with plenty of pool time.

Princess plans to spend an entire summer of 2021 cruising form Port of Los Angeles.  They’ll be using the regal Crown Princess for 23  departures.  You can spend 14-days glorious days that include port stops in San Diego, Monterey and an overnight in Cabo.
