Grand Princess Will Call San Francisco Home

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

This May, the City by the Bay is getting a permanent visitor on its coastline. No, not more sea lions or seagulls. San Francisco is going to be the home port for the new and improved Grand Princess.

May 2013 will mark the first time that a Princess ship has called San Francisco home for an entire year. The ship, which just came out of dry dock, will be sailing to Alaska, Hawaii and Mexico with stops along the California coast.

“Our Bay Area passengers and travel agents have long been asking for more cruise options from San Francisco and our new year-round schedule with Grand Princess will now give them a great selection of itinerary choices,”¬†said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises’ executive vice president.

From May to September 2013 the ship will offer 10-day cruises to Alaska, then from September to March the ship will offer 10-day itineraries to the Mexican Riviera. From October 2013 to April 2014 Princess will take 12 15-day trips to Hawaii.

Do you find having a ship docked in your city makes it easier to get away?

Next year we would love to cruise to Los Angeles to see our family,
stay for approx 2 weeks and then cruise back but there are no cruises to suite this itinery, will there be any in the future?
Best regards, Violet.

Hi Violet,

There are some options, but it depends on how flexible you are. I do see a couple of options that would match your needs going back from LA to London in March 2013, the hard part is getting you from London to LA. I’ll send you an e-mail with more details.

My wife and I are cruising on the Grand Princess, commencing November 3rd, to Fort Lauderdale. Currently there are bad weather conditions over West indies ei:Hurricane, which appears to be moving towards Florida. Should this be happening when we are nearing FLD, what alternative arrangements are in place to ensure passenger safety?.

Patrick,
We understand your concerns about the weather, but you should know that cruise lines place safety as their first priority. If there is bad weather they will divert the ships.
Since we didn’t work with you on this cruise, we don’t know if you have insurance, but we highly recommend that all our clients purchase insurance for situations just like these.
We’re sure you will have an amazing vacation and when you are ready for another cruise please let us know so we can make sure everything runs smoothly.
