San Diego Business Journal The Port of San Diego will welcome the return of cruise lines and cruise passengers on October 1. 

That day, the Disney Wonder and Grand Princess will be the first to sail out of San Diego since spring 2020, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Disney Wonder is setting sail for a four-day cruise from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas and back. The Grand Princess will sail from Los Angeles on September 30 and will make a stop in San Diego on October 1 on its way to Ensenada and back to Los Angeles.

The Port currently anticipates more than 100 cruise calls through May 2022. Those calls will primarily be from Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Celebrity Cruises and Disney Cruise Line.
