Princess Cruises reveals the name of its newest ship

Start getting excited, because come 2020, you could be cruising on a brand new Princess Cruises ship!

The cruise line revealed the name of it’s fifth ship last night, set to be completed and launched by 2020.

And the name of their new ship is… Enchanted Princess! 

Enchanted Princess is scheduled to debut on June 15, 2020 sailing on a series of European voyages. Bookings for her maiden season, Summer 2020, will open on November 8 this year. No, we aren’t joking. You can book a Europe trip on this brand new ship in as early as a few months time.

Jan Swartz president of Princess Cruises, said the name matches the elegance and grace of the ship itself.

“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,” she said.

“We are certain Enchanted Princess will exceed the expectations of our guests, ensuring they have the most memorable cruise holiday.”

Swartz added that Princess has the strongest pipeline of premium new ship builds in the world. The arrival of Enchanted Princess will be followed by the debut of the sixth Royal-Class vessel for Princess Cruises in 2022.

The cruise line also has two new Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) powered ships on order, bringing its new ship order to five ships in six years. Which is pretty damn impressive, if you ask us.

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. And it’s so pretty:

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).
