Today, the Crown Princess departed for Hawaii and the South Pacific for a month-long cruise.
Princess Cruises will be offering a 28-night itinerary in 2023, sailing roundtrip from LA’s World Cruise Center and visiting seven destinations in Hawaii, Samoa, and French Polynesia.
Before reaching the Hawaiian Archipelago, the Crown Princess spends four full days at sea. Hilo, Honolulu, and Mauai are set to be visited over the next three days.
The 2006-built vessel arrives at Pago Pago and Apia in Samoa after cruising in the Pacific Ocean for four additional days.
After spending three days at sea, the Princess reaches French Polynesia and Tahiti. As part of the trip, Moorea and Papeete will be visited.
As the Crown Princess sailed back to Los Angeles, it spent eight days on the way.
In late April, the vessel repositions to Vancouver following a 15-night cruise to Hawaii.
The ship will be homeported in the Canadian town for the summer season in Alaska through mid-September.
The Crown Princess was originally delivered to service in 2006 from the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. It was followed in 2007 and 2008 by the Emerald Princess and the Ruby Princess, which formed the Crown Class.
The Crown Princess will be equipped in mid-2019 with Princess’ Medallion Class technology. The vessel features 900 cabins with balconies and a variety of dining, recreation, and entertainment options, as well as a piazza-style atrium and Movies Under the Stars poolside theater.
