More than 200 crew members from Majestic Princess received COVID-19 vaccinations Friday at the Port of Los Angeles.

In partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, Ports America and Metro Cruise Services, Ambulnz administered 221 COVID-19 vaccines.

Encouraging step

Dr. Brenda Barnetson, senior director of clinical services for Princess Cruises, visited the crew members who volunteered to take part in this encouraging step in preparation for resuming service.

'We’re glad to be providing the World Cruise Center as a location where our partners can vaccinate staff in preparation for the return of cruising to Southern California,' Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka said. 'This is important to the hundreds of thousands of people who enjoy cruises embarking from Los Angeles annually as well as to our local economy and job market.'

$1m impact per cruise call

Seroka added each time a cruise ship calls at Los Angeles, it generates more than $1m local restaurants, hotels and shops.
