Default Princess Returns To Galveston

Princess announced yesterday that the Crown Princess will sail from Galveston from December 22, 2012 through April of 2013. This will be the first Princess sailings from this port since 2007. As a Texan, this will work well for me. I eagerly await the opening of bookings for these dates!

Talking Sail from Galveston

That is good news. We had a really nice cruise from Galveston a few years ago. Check out our trip report and pictures at The Halls Western Caribbean Cruise.

Princess has done some interesting things with their upcoming itineraries.... Nothing based out of San Juan was a bit of a shock.

It's nice that southerners will have a different ship to do the western itinerary...take some of the repetitiveness away...

Same ports but different ships. Would be nice to get both new ship and new ports.
