A new 3,660-guest cruise ship due to launch in two years’ time has been named Enchanted Princess.
The latest addition to the Princess Cruises fleet is currently under construction at the Fincantieri Monfalcone shipyard in Trieste, Italy.
Weighing in at 143,700 tonnes the fifth Royal-Class vessel in the Princess line-up will be a sister ship to Royal Princess, Regal Princess, Majestic Princess and Sky Princess (due in October 2019).
Enchanted Princess is scheduled to launch on 15th June, 2020 sailing to a series of European destinations. Maiden season sailings will be available to book from 8th November this year.
President of Princess Cruises Jan Swartz said: “The name 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 cruise.”
The new ship will feature several restaurants, a glass-floored walkway that arcs out over the side of the vessel allowing passengers to look down at the sea below.
Princess also has two new liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered ships on order to be delivered in late 2023 and spring 2025.
They will be the largest ships in the Princess fleet, carrying approximately 4,300 guests each.
Princess now has five ships arriving over the next six years.
The company currently operates a fleet of 17 modern cruise liners, sailing to over 380 destinations - including Canada, Hawaii, Australia and New Zealand - across all seven continents.
Part of the Carnival Corporation, it carries two million guests each year on voyages lasting from three to 111 days.
A range of benefits are available for groups looking at a cruise with Princess including discounted rates and lower ticket prices for travelling together on one of the shore excursions.
