The newly-refurbished Diamond Princess welcomed guests onboard on November 20 for its inaugural sailing from its new homeport, San Diego in California, USA. This sailing milestone completes the Princess Cruises‘ 15-ship fleet’s return to service.
For its first sailing, Diamond Princess is offering a seven-night cruise to Mexico that includes visits to Cabo San Lucas, La Paz and Loreto before returning to San Diego on November 27, after which the ship sails a unique 20-day cruise to Central America, round trip from San Diego. This cruise features visits to several ports in Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama and Guatemala, including Manzanillo, Puntarenas, Panama City and Puerto Quetzal.
