Princess Cruises has unveiled its celebration programme for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Between June 2 and 5 a series of activities to celebrate the milestone will take place on the line’s UK homeport ships – Sky Princess, Enchanted Princess, Emerald Princess, and Island Princess.
Guests will be able to watch live coverage of a series of celebratory events on the ships’ large Movies Under the Stars screens. These will include Trooping of the Colour, the Thanksgiving service at Westminster Abbey, the Epsom Derby, the Platinum Party at the Palace and the Jubilee Party.
The onboard piazzas will be decorated for the occasion with banners and buntings in the royal colours and guests will be encouraged to wear red, white and blue for a special dress up night.
Tony Roberts, outgoing vice president of Princess Cruises UK and Europe, said: “The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is a significant milestone and we’re excited to host celebrations onboard our UK homeport ships that are guaranteed to provide our guests with memorable experiences and lots of great entertainment.”
British-themed food and beverages will be served across the four days, including a ‘Royal Afternoon Tea’ with British favourites such as Victoria sponge cake, Pimms and strawberries served on top deck and a ‘Royal Dinner’ menu.
In addition, exclusive entertainment will take place on Sky Princess, including a royal variety show with an Elton John tribute, and a talk from guest speaker Grant Harrold, the former butler of HRH, Prince of Wales.
