Princess pol­ishes jewel in the Crown

Cruise Weekly - - News -

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.
