Princess Cruises‘ fifth Royal-class cruise ship Enchanted Princess has been christened in Fort Lauderdale in a special ceremony as part of an original production “Our World, Enchanted”.

Princess Cruises used the christening of Enchanted Princess as an opportunity to introduce viewers to the innovative features and amenities of the MedallionClass ship.

The production also chronicled the various milestones the Princess fleet has seen from the cruise line’s first ever voyage in 1965 to Mexico, the premier of ‘The Love Boat’ in 1976 and many other highlights.

A retrospective also featured some of the line’s many distinguished godmothers, including Audrey Hepburn, Princess Diana and the Duchess of Cambridge.

Three members of The Explorers Club served as the godmothers of Enchanted Princess. They were recognised for their achievements in expeditions, oceanography and mapping the oceans.

Captain Lynn Danaher, Dr. Vicki Ferrini and Jenifer Austin jointly smashed a bottle of Taittinger Champagne on the hull of Enchanted Princess to culminate its official naming ceremony.

“Our World, Enchanted” included appearances by Princess Cruises President John Padgett, Group President Jan Swartz and Commodore Nick Nash, and provides a look into the beautifully-designed interiors, elegantly-appointed accommodation, world-class entertainment, gourmet dining and craft cocktails available on Enchanted Princess.

The 145,000-ton, 3,660-guest ship represents an evolution of the design platform used for her sister ships – Royal Princess (2013), Regal Princess (2014), Majestic Princess (2017) and Sky Princess (2019) – offering an elevation of spectacular style and elegance that is distinguished by Princess.

The ship features new luxury Sky Suites, 25 bars and restaurants, aquatic relaxation, original production shows and Take Five, a new jazz bar where guests can enjoy specialty-crafted gin cocktails.

The new ship also includes old favourites like the Piazza, Lotus Spa, The Sanctuary, Movies Under the Stars, Princess Live!, The Shops of Princess, Camp Discovery Youth & Teen Center and Discovery at SEA programmes.

The inaugural cruise season of Enchanted Princess began on November 10th, 2021 with various 10-day Southern Caribbean itineraries, sailing roundtrip from Ft. Lauderdale, but her naming ceremony was delayed due to the pandemic.
