Princess polishes jewel in the Crown
FOLLOWING a 10-day makeover in dry dock, Crown Princess is cruising the Mediterranean sporting the line’s signature logo on its bow and an array of updated spaces and onboard offerings.
The 3,080-pax ship is the latest to benefit from Princess Cruises’ US$450 million fleetwide investment under its “Come Back New Promise” campaign.
“Crown Princess first debuted in 2006 with several industry-first offerings, including our adultsonly Sanctuary,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president.
“Now, 12 years later, we’re continuing our commitment to offer Crown Princess guests the next evolution of signature Princess product innovations while they cruise to their bucketlist destinations.”
Four top-deck outdoor dining venues have been revitalised and renamed: The Salty Dog Grill (burgers, including the ‘Ernesto’ burger, hot dogs and tacos); Slice (featuring the line’s signature classic Neapolitan-style pizza); Coffee & Cones (specialty coffee and gourmet ice cream); and The Mix (the poolside bar, formerly Mermaid’s Tale).
Crown Princess now has Club Class Mini-Suites, the new premium stateroom category featuring VIP amenities, exclusive Club Class dining, and priority embarkation and disembarkation
Princess Luxury Beds have been installed in all staterooms.
Crown Princess is cruising the Mediterranean until Nov, when it moves to Fort Lauderdale for a season of Caribbean cruises.
