If there’s a cruise line California can call its own, it’s Princess Cruises.® Princess Patricia began sailing from Los Angeles to the Mexican Riviera more than 50 years ago; today, Princess is the third-largest cruise company, and the only one headquartered in California. The line continues to be the leader in cruises from California to the Panama Canal, Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska and points beyond, with many of those itineraries aboard the 2,600-passenger Grand Princess.®
The line has introduced a number of fresh new elements to its cruising experience; check out what’s new on Princess Cruises.®
A Moveable Feast
On the food front, SHARE raises the bar for specialty restaurants at sea. Conceived by chef Curtis Stone, whose restaurants Maude and Gwen are two of the hottest in Los Angeles, SHARE offers a six-course menu (with vegetarian options available) served family-style. There are standalone SHARE restaurants aboard Emerald Princess®, Ruby Princess® and Sun Princess,® and select Crafted by Curtis menu items are offered in the main dining rooms of the rest of the fleet.
On select ships, the Salty Dog Gastropub takes over for the Wheelhouse Bar in the evenings, with a menu curated by Umami Burger’s Ernesto Uchimura. The juicy Ernesto burger earns raves, as does the gastropub’s craft cocktail list.
The exclusive Chocolate Journeys experience is available fleetwide in partnership with acclaimed chocolatier Norman Love, and it allows guests to indulge in deliciously rich experiences like custom-crafted signature desserts, wine and chocolate pairings, specialty chocolate cocktails and even chocolate spa treatments.
