Happy Anniversary

It may have been twenty years ago today that Sgt Pepper taught his band to play, but it was fifty years ago today that Princess Patricia set sail to Mexico and Princess Cruises was born.

To mark the anniversary, today was proclaimed “Princess Cruises Day” in the County of Los Angeles and the City of Santa Clarita, the location of Princess Cruises World Headquarters.

To mark the day themselves, Princess celebrated aboard Pacific Princess at the Port of Los Angeles. Special guests were the original “Love Boat” cast. Later this afternoon, Pacific Princess set sail on a throwback cruise, recreating the very first itinerary to the iconic Mexican Riviera.

The complete story appeared in the December 3 edition of Cruise News Daily.

Special guests at today's celebration aboard Pacific Princess was the original cast of "The Love Boat," and it looks like Princess bought them new uniforms for the occasion. Shown are Bernie Koppell, Gred Grandy, Ted Lange, Gavin MacLeod, Lauren Tewes and Jill Whelan.

Today was proclaimed "Princess Cruises Day" in the County of Los Angeles and the City of Santa Clarita. Accepting the proclamation was Jan Swartz, the president of Princess Cruises, and Gavin MacLeod. It is being presented by Bob Kellar, Mayor Pro Tem of Santa Clarita.
