The Enchanted Princess the fifth Royal-Class ship from Princess was officially named in a special ceremony.
To commemorate the occasion, the celebrations were part of an original production called ‘Our World Enchanted’ which can be watched below.
The naming ceremony was hosted by Princess Ambassador Jill Whelan, the Enchanted Princess Cruise Director Dan Falconer and John Chernesky, Princess’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
The naming ceremony also gave viewers a look into the Enchanted Princess which will be able to host 3,600 guests.
It features new luxury Sky Suites, 25 bars and restaurants, aquatic relaxation, fan favourite original production shows and Take Five, a new jazz bar where guests can enjoy specialty crafted gin cocktails, developed exclusively for Take Five.
The new ship also includes old favourites like the Piazza, Lotus Spa, The Sanctuary, Movies Under the Stars, Princess Live!, The Shops of Princess, Camp Discovery Youth & Teen Center and Discovery at SEA programs.
The first journey aboard the ship began on November 10 with various ten-day Southern Caribbean itineraries sailing roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA.
The ceremony also honoured three members of the Princess Explorer’s Club who are the godmothers of the new ship.
Captain Lynn Danaher, Dr. Vicki Ferrini and Jenifer Austin have been picked for their achievements in expeditions, oceanography and mapping the oceans.
Princess Cruises President John Padgett said; “Celebrating the inauguration of a new cruise ship is a time-honoured maritime tradition.”
“Captain Danaher, Dr Ferrini and Ms Austin have made (a significant contribution) to ocean conservation and stewardship. The world’s oceans are our livelihood and ‘home’ to more than 25,000 employees who service millions of guests on cruise holidays each year.”
