From its modest beginnings in 1965 with a single ship cruising to Mexico, Princess catapulted to stardom in 1977 when Pacific Princess was cast in a starring role on a new television show called “The Love Boat.” The weekly series, which introduced millions of viewers to the still-new concept of a sea-going vacation, was an instant hit and both the company name and its “seawitch” logo have remained synonymous with cruising ever since.

Princess’ modern fleet has grown considerably in recent years to include Caribbean Princess (2004), Coral Princess (2003), Dawn Princess (1997), Diamond Princess (2004), Island Princess (2003), Pacific Princess (1999), Regal Princess (1991), Royal Princess (1984), Golden Princess (2001), Grand Princess (1998), Sapphire Princess (2004), Star Princess (2002), Sun Princess (1995) and Tahitian Princess (1999). An additional new ship will join Princess’ fleet in 2006, making it one of the most modern fleets on the high seas.

Princess has more than 150 itineraries ranging from seven to 72 days. The line sails to all seven continents and calls at nearly 260 ports around the world, which include the Caribbean, Alaska, Panama Canal, Europe, Mexican Riviera, South America, Australia/New Zealand, South Pacific, Hawaiian, Tahiti/French Polynesia, Asia, India, Africa, Holy Land, Canada/New England and Antarctica.

Princess maintains a strong presence in Alaska. Through its Seattle-based Princess Tours division, the company operates a wide variety of spectacular land and sea experiences in the majestic “Land of the Midnight Sun.” The largest cruise and tour operator in the state, Princess operates six cruise ships, five riverside wilderness lodges, luxury Midnight Sun Express Ultra Dome rail cars, and a fleet of deluxe motor coaches; allowing cruise passengers to connect seamlessly to a landside tour and experience several distinctly unique facets of the Alaskan wilderness in a single trip.

Princess Cruises is part of Carnival Corporation & plc.

P&O’s beginnings go back to the 1837 when as the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company began passenger conveyance. Novelist William Makepeace Thackeray made a "Mediterranean cruise" -- a Grand Tour by sea aboard a series of P&O ships in 1844, and published his enthusiastic memoirs in "Notes of a Journey from Cornhill to Grand Cairo." The company to this day has remained a British-based shipping line and in its heyday served the British Empire.

In the 1880s the Orient Line and the North of Scotland company, both later to be taken over by P&O, pioneered modern-style cruises, and in 1904 P&O offered its first program: First Class only with shore excursions arranged by Thomas Cook, using the 23-year-old liner Rome, renamed Vectis in her new role as a "cruising yacht." Between the wars cruising became more popular, often using the newest ships in the fleet rather than the oldest. Tourist class cruises began in the early 1930s and Pacific cruises from Australia a few years later. In 1960, the company merged with the Orient Line to form P&O-Orient Lines

P&O's last ship built for scheduled line voyages, Canberra, was delivered in 1961, but by the 1970s, jet airlines had taken over the company's traditional passenger trades while the container ship packed up liner cargoes. Forced to concentrate on the leisure side of sea travel, P&O abolished passenger classes, acquired Los Angeles-based Princess Cruises in 1974, and Sitmar Cruises in 1988. Sitmar cruises was then merged with Princess Cruises.

In 1999, P&O entered Continental Europe with the acquisition of a majority stake in AIDA, and the following year acquired the remainder of AIDA and Seetours, a company specializing in the German cruise and riverboat sector. That same year, the company demerged from the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company and became known as P&O Princess Cruises. In July 2001 A'ROSA, a new premium destination-oriented brand catering exclusively for German-speaking customers was launched. In 2003, P&O Princess Cruises plc merged with Carnival Corporation, to become Carnival & plc.
