Princess Cruises' 111-day cruise sets sail for 2020
Princess Cruises is starting off its 111-day around-the-world voyage on Monday with about 670 guests and 375 crew members aboard the company's 592-foot Pacific Princess.
The completely sold-out four-month venture sets sail Monday at 6 p.m. PST from Port of Los Angeles and will return on May 11.
The Pacific Princess will tour 38 ports in 26 countries on five continents – covering 34,287 nautical miles during the cruise's lengthy trip. It will be the first time Princess Cruises will make stops at Kaikoura, New Zealand; Praslin, Seychelles Islands; Mayotte Island, French protectorate and Zanzibar, Tanzania during its world cruise, according to a press release.
For cruisers that missed out on booking this globetrotting trip, Princess Cruises is currently booking for its 2021 world cruise – which will debut its 965-foot and 15-deck Island Princess. The larger vessel can hold up to 2,200 guests and 900 crew members, and it even has a wedding chapel on board in case any passengers decide to get hitched during their stay.
