This is definitely designed for folks who enjoy long cruises that visit many ports. On Jan. 5, 2020, Pacific Princess will set out on a 111-day voyage from Ft. Lauderdale, stopping in Los Angeles to pick up more guests on Jan. 20.
The 670-passenger Pacific Princess is the perfect size if you are not a fan of mega-ships. Short segments will be offered for those who don’t have the time, money or inclination to do the whole enchilada.
“We’ve been offering world cruises since 1998 and our team of destination experts knows how to create the best worldwide itineraries like no other in the cruise industry,” Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president, said in a statement. “Our captain, officers and crew regularly hear from guests the impact the world cruise has on them, as they share their appreciation for taking them to places they never in a million years thought they would experience.”
