17  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Ketchikan investigating discolored water discharges - Golden and Star Princess on: August 03, 2018, 10:30:00 AM
"Following complaints in mid-June of a cruise ship discharging discolored water while docked in Ketchikan, city officials investigated and say the discharge was from the Golden Princess cruise ship’s exhaust scrubbers.

In a July 24th memo, City Public Works Director Mark Hilson writes that those in-port discharges may not comply with regulations, and are under investigation by state and federal enforcement officials.

Hilson says the ship’s agent turned off the discharge after a notification from the city. The city also has notified Cruise Line Agencies of Alaska to cease all non-compliant discharges while in port."

18  Princess Cruising / Princess News & Princess Chatter / Princess orders two LNG powered cruise ships for 2023 and 2025 on: July 24, 2018, 11:38:29 AM
"The Love Boat line on Monday announced plans for two new vessels that will measure 175,000 tons – more than 20 percent bigger than its biggest ships to date.
Scheduled to debut in 2023 and 2025, respectively, the as-yet-unnamed vessels will carry approximately 4,300 passengers at double occupancy. That's about 700 more than recently unveiled Princess ships such as Regal Princess.

Princess didn't release design details for the new ships other than to say they would be powered by liquid natural gas – a first for the line.

Does anyone have an opinion on what the best decks for staterooms on the Royal Princess?

I would tend to not pick the Marina deck (15) directly under the Lido deck and not pick the Emerald deck above the Promenade deck.  That said, E726 and E727 are worth a look.

The better question is what cabin should you chose?  I say: 1. Pick a cabin that is away from noise generators like an elevator lobby, laundry rooms, Princess Theater curtain shafts and the gym. 2.  Lower decks and center ship may slightly reduce feeling the ship motion.  You'll find more tips in the Cruising Tips Chatter discussion board in Princess Chatter.  You'll find a link to that board on the Chatter main page.

Any recommendations for Hotels near the Port of Los Angeles?

We always stay one of the nice hotels near the shore line park and aquarium in Long Beach.  SuperShuttle to Long Beach from LAX then the next day take a very short taxi ride to catch the ship at the World Cruise Center in San Pedro.

WOW. Probably nothing will be shared with the travel agent who sold the cruise.

It's the imaginary Princess cruise ship that never leaves the Princess Cay's harbor.
