By Claire Benktander | 14 Dec 2021
Enchanted Princess, the fifth royal-class ship in the Princess Cruises fleet, was officially named in a ceremony yesterday, on 13 December 2021.
As part of a new online production named ‘Our World, Enchanted’, which premiered on the cruise line’s YouTube channel and Facebook page, the show introduced viewers to the innovative features and amenities of the royal-class ship and the history of Princess Cruises before official naming Enchanted Princess and welcoming her into the Princess global fleet.
Hosted by Princess Cruises’ celebrations ambassador Jill Whelan and Enchanted Princess’ cruise director Dan Falconer, the ceremony honoured three members of The Explorers Club who serve as the godmothers of Enchanted Princess, recognised for their achievements in expeditions and oceanography – Captain Lynn Danaher, Dr. Vicki Ferrini and Jenifer Austin.
The production provided a sneak peek into the interiors, accommodation, entertainment, gourmet dining and craft cocktails available on Enchanted Princess, as well as including an appearance by newly-appointed Princess Cruises president John Padgett, group president Jan Swartz and British Commodore Nick Nash.
The 145,000-ton, 3,660-guest ship represents an evolution of the design used for her sister ships – Royal Princess (2013), Regal Princess (2014), Majestic Princess (2017) and Sky Princess (2019) – offering an elevation of Princess Cruises’ style and elegance. Enchanted Princess will be based in Europe from April to September 2022 and will undertake a series of Scandinavian voyages from Copenhagen.
