Started in 1965 on the West Coast with one old ship chartered during the winter months, Princess grew to be a ship-owning company, was bought out by P&O of London in 1974, then absorbed Sitmar in the late 1980s. An American company became British-owned, then added an Italian flavor to include ships with Italian officers and maitre d'hotels and Italian menu items. British officers are in command of some ships, and on those registered in Hamilton, Bermuda, and Great Britain, the captains are able to perform marriages.
