This is wonderful news of us! We've never tried Princess Cruise Lines...only HAL, RCCL, and Celebrity...so now we have a perfect opportunity to try Princess! From the article they look like they have an excellent West Coast itinerary. This should be great...just love S.F. too.
As you may know, prices are different from ship to ship in the same cruiseline..You would have to compare simular itinaries and times, etc. I would say Princess is priced close to Celebrity in most respects...Just a different time of year makes a big different in price....You will have to do some shopping :-)
