11 different ships, 200 calls. That's a lot of N95 Masks!!
Christopher Chase, marketing manager at the Port of Los Angeles said in a statement “Resumption of cruises from the LA Waterfront is not only great news for our cruise partners and local economy but also the tens of thousands of vacationers who will have a variety of cruise options, itineraries and exciting destinations conveniently accessible from the Port of Los Angeles.
Many of these cruise ships are less than five years old, and can be considered destinations in and of themselves, featuring incredible amenities that passengers of all ages can appreciate.”
The Port of Los Angeles said that Princess Cruises’ 2022 itineraries out of Los Angeles will largely focus on week-long trips to the Mexican Rivera, with stops in Cabo San Lucas, Puerta Vallarta and Mazatlán. Once Hawaii lifts its current COVID-19 travel restrictions, the cruise line will also bring back its 14-day itineraries to the Hawaiian Islands.
The Port also said in a press release that cruise travel is a “valuable component” of the LA tourism economy. A busy cruise weekend, with three or four ships in port, brings as many as 20,000 travelers to the LA Waterfront. Each cruise ship call generates more than $1 million in economic activity".
