(Best Syndication News) - The Grand Princess will be based in San Francisco year round staring in May 2013, Princes Cruises announced today. The destinations setting sail out of San Francisco include Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, and the California Coast.

The cruises will be on an extensively renovated Grand Princess cruise ship. The Alaskan cruises will be held during the summer months. Then the cruises will venture to the Hawaiian Islands, Mexico, and the California Coast line between Fall 2013 and Spring 2014.

The company said that the 2,600-passenger ship underwent a vast overhaul and update to the level of the newer ships. To accomplish this, the Grand Princess had the longest dry-dock in the company’s history. The ship now has a new Piazza atrium. Dining includes new eateries, including Alfredo’s Pizzeria and the Crown Grill. They also have added the line’s first specialty tea lounge called Leaves.

"Princess ships have been cruising from San Francisco for more than 40 years, and we greatly appreciate the company's longstanding partnership with our city," said Monique Moyer, executive director of the Port of San Francisco.

"We are delighted to now have our first year-round ship based here, and it is a natural fit that the vessel is the caliber of Grand Princess. Having this ship sail under the Golden Gate Bridge and berth at the foot of Coit Tower will be spectacular, both for the passengers on board and the people of San Francisco."
