Princess Cruises’ newest ship Enchanted Princess made its maiden voyage to the Caribbean yesterday (November 10).
Enchanted Princess’ inaugural season consists of 15 10-night Caribbean itineraries, sailing roundtrip from Ft. Lauderdale. The ship will then head to Europe in April 2022 to sail on a series of Scandinavian voyages roundtrip from Copenhagen.
A special naming ceremony will be broadcast globally on Monday December 13 on Princess Cruises’ Facebook page.
John Padgett, Princess Cruises’ president, said: “Introducing our newest ship – Enchanted Princess – is a significant milestone for Princess and we look forward to the first guests experiencing all this gorgeous ship has to offer.”
He added: “Enchanted Princess is our seventh ship to enter service since the global pause, signifying our successful path forward, with many loyal and new guests ready to sail with us and our teammates ready to deliver meaningful and memorable holidays at an incredible value.”
Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises vice president UK & Europe, said: “The reopening of US borders to fully vaccinated UK travellers means that UK guests can be some of the first to experience our newest ship in the fleet, whilst also enjoying some winter sun in the Caribbean. Those who prefer to stay closer to home can also look forward to experiencing this beautiful ship, with Enchanted Princess offering Scandinavian itineraries from springtime next year.”
The 3,660-guest ship has 25 bars and restaurants, four swimming pools and multiple hot tubs, and a spa.
Accommodation highlights include Sky Suites, which provide accommodation for up to five guests and boast what Princess claims to be the largest balcony at sea, spanning 1000 square feet and offering 270-degree views.
