Five Princess ships to sail from west coast in 2022

By Patti Pietschmann,Travel Diva

Just as things were looking bleak for the cruise-starved,  Princess Cruises is offering  dozens of 2020 itineraries.  It’s been worrisome whether cruising would ever return. But at least Princess is betting on its return.

The company is accepting reservations for 2020 cruises from Los Angeles or San Francisco. And the itineraries are glorious. We’re talking Hawaii, Mexico,  the California coast and Pacific Northwest. And if you’re interested Pavlus Travel can book it at a great fare.


  • Grand Princess will do a 15-day Hawaiian islands from Los Angeles and a 10-day Baja Peninsula and Sea of Cortez run.
  • Ruby Princess will resume Hawaii, Mexico and California Coast itineraries from San Francisco.
  • Majestic Princess and Discovery Princess will do 25 cruises to the Mexican Riviera from Los Angeles. Among the options is seven-day voyages to Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta.
  • Ruby Princess returns to San Francisco  that same year offering  three, 10-day cruises to the Mexican Rivier.  Ports include  Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán, Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta.
