Indeed, a Princess cruise ship (the Island Princess) was used for the popular TV series "The Love Boat" and the cruise line still benefits from that image among the older folks which are the majority of the cruise ship passengers. What began as the little cruise line that could - operating one small luxury liner between Los Angeles and the Mexican Riviera in 1965 (and later Alaska) - has evolved into a cruise industry giant. Princess Cruises has 14 ships sailing the globe on more than 150 itineraries that range from seven to 72 days and visit some 260 ports. 

Princess Cruises big news in 2004 was its near-unprecedented new ships expansion. In the space of about three months the cruise line added three new cruise ships. Diamond Princess, the fleet's new biggest-ship-ever (at 116,000 tons), christened at the end of February; followed by Caribbean Princess and then, finally, Diamond's sister ship - Sapphire Princess.

Fleet expansion hasn't been limited to 2004, of course. In 2003, the company launched the sister ships Coral Princess and Island Princess. In 2002, the company acquired two cruise ships from now-defunct Renaissance Cruises and, after minor refurbishments, introduced Tahitian Princess and Pacific Princess. In 2009 Princess Cruises acquired two more former Renaissance Cruises ships and named them Royal Princess and Ocean Princess. Star Princess, a sister ship to Grand Princess, also joined the fleet in 2002. Five new cruise ships from the Grand Class are operational and sailing, all of them 116,000 tons -  the Crown Princess, the Caribbean Princess the Emerald Princess, the Diamond Princess and  the Ruby Princess.

Princess Cruises is now part of the industry's giant Carnival Corporation a move that occurred when Carnival acquired the cruise line's parent company - U.K.-based P&O Cruises. And even though Princess Cruises is now part of the world's largest cruise corporation, the operation of the line has, by and large, remained the same. 

The company also has a good reputation for treating well it's employees which explains the high rate of returning crew. It is our opinion that Princess Cruises is one of the most highly recommended cruise lines to work for.
