Most cruise fans know that the Love Boat was set aboard Pacific Princess, and they know it was one of the early ships of Princess Cruises. They also know that most of the time the Love Boat sailed from Los Angeles to Mexico. But Pacific Princess wasn’t Princess’ first ship. Another ship came before the Love Boat and made the Mexican Riviera Princess’ signature route.
Princess Patricia was the first Princess ship, chartered from the Canadian Pacific Railroad, and it sailed a 14-day cruise to Mexico on December 3, 1965. The 50th anniversary of that important sailing is coming up, and Princess is going to have a fun way of commemorating it that Princess’ biggest fans won’t want to miss.
