Princess Deploys Extra Ship to Mexican Riviera
Beginning next fall – and we mean 2004 – Princess Cruises plans to double its offerings to the Mexican Riviera by adding an extra ship. Currently, the 109,000-ton, 2,600-passenger Star Princess, which home ports in Long Beach, is the line’s only ship to offer regularly scheduled voyages to that region. Star Princess, sailing a 7-day voyage, visits the usual Mexican Riviera suspects – Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas.

Fans of the Mexican Riviera will get double the choices beginning next September as Princess has assigned both of its 2004 newbuilds – the 113,000-ton, 2,670-passenger sister ships Diamond Princess and Sapphire Princess – to that region.

Diamond Princess will take over Star Princess’ “greatest hits” assignment out of Long Beach – seven-day itineraries will continue to call at Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas. More distinctive, however, is Sapphire Princess’ voyages. That ship will sail, on a seasonal basis, ten-day voyages out of San Francisco. Added ports of call on this route are stops at Catalina Island and San Diego.

Diamond Princess is slated for launch in March and Sapphire Princess is on target for a May debut.
