Princess and Repair Firm Invest in San Francisco Port

October 31, 2007 By: Travel Agent Central Contributor Travel Agent

The port of San Francisco will be capable of accommodating and servicing the largest cruise ships in the region after Princess Cruises and BAE Systems invest $5 million to upgrade the port's drydock facilities. Improvements at Pier 70 will structurally reinforce drydock No. 2's foundation. "With improved maritime assets, we can compete to attract mega cruise ships that previously would not homeport on the West Coast," said Monique Moyer, the port's executive director. As a result of the expansion, Princess already has reserved the facility for scheduled hull repairs and topside renovations of two of its ships, Star Princess and Golden Princess, in fall 2008 and spring 2009, respectively. "Being able to refit our large ships on the West Coast is a big advantage for us," said Dean Brown, Princess Cruises' executive vice president. (DE)
