It’s hard to find a better indicator of the fact that Princess Cruises is giving cruise fans around the world exactly what they’re seeking than the line’s fast expanding fleet. Princess now has 17 vessels around the world, treating holidaymakers to their distinctive brand of traditional yet down-to-earth cruising - but it’s one of their upcoming ships which is currently making headlines.
Princess Cruises has just announced the name of the new ship it will be launching in 2020: Enchanted Princess. The Enchanted will join four other Royal-Class ships including Royal Princess, Regal Princess, Majestic Princess and the upcoming Sky Princess.
Jan Swartz, President of Princess Cruises, said of the newly christened vessel, “The name Enchanted Princess is captivating and conveys the elegance and grace of our new ship which will introduce more travellers to the pleasures and value of cruising. We are certain Enchanted Princess will exceed the expectations of our guests, ensuring they have the most memorable holiday.”
Ms Swartz went on to say that Princess has the strongest pipeline of premium new ship builds in the world, which should come as no great surprise to those following Princess news. After all, the Enchanted Princess will be followed by another Royal-Class vessel in 2022, and the line also has two Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) powered ships on order. As it stands, Princess has a new ship order which comes to five vessels in six years.
The Enchanted Princess will be constructed in the Fincantieri Monfalcone shipyard, utilising an evolution of the design which was used for Princess Cruises’ existing Royal-Class ships. She will carry 3,660 passengers and is set to debut on June 15, 2020. Those who are keen to experience Princess’ newest ship for themselves will be able to book a cruise on the Enchanted Princess from November 8 this year - but if you can’t wait that long, take a look at these Princess cruises. All you have to decide is: how will you escape the ordinary?
