0

Princess Cruises newest ship, Enchanted Princess, is scheduled to debut on 15 June 2020, sailing on a series of European voyages.

“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,” said Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises. “We are certain Enchanted Princess will exceed the expectations of our guests, ensuring they have the most memorable cruise vacation.”

The arrival of Enchanted Princess will be followed by the debut of the sixth Royal-class vessel for Princess Cruises in 2021. The cruise line also has two new Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)-powered ships on order, bringing its new ship orderbook to five ships in six years.

Construction of the 143,700-ton, 3,660-passenger Enchanted Princess will take place in the Fincantieri Monfalcone shipyard with the ship set to feature an evolution of the design platform used for the cruise line’s previous Royal-class ships.

Princess Cruises currently operates a fleet of 17 modern cruise ships, sailing voyages around the globe. Enchanted Princess is a sister ship to four other Royal-class ships in the cruise line’s fleet – Royal Princess, Regal Princess, Majestic Princess and Sky Princess (joining the fleet in October 2019).
