Princess Cruises is one of the largest cruise lines in the world. They are a dominant player on the west coast, but do have cruises out of east coast ports too.
The Princess cruise ships are middle-market options. A good level of amenities and services are offered at a fair price. They are neither the cheapest nor the most luxurious.
Princess Cruises was named "best cruise line for first-timers" by Cruise Critic editor's choice. There are activities to keep the whole family entertained.
