We are delighted to announce that our new Royal Princess will be officially named by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge. The grand ceremony will take place in Southampton, England on June 13. We can think of no better way to celebrate our company’s British heritage than by having The Duchess, admired around the world for her style and grace, serve as Godmother to our newest ship.
Princess has a rich history of celebrated Godmothers throughout the years including names such as Margaret Thatcher, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren and the Princess of Wales. Click here to learn more about the legacy of Godmothers who personify the glamour and spirit of Princess Cruises.
Royal Princess will arrive at Ocean Terminal in Southampton, England on Friday, June 7 for a week of festivities before the official inauguration ceremony. After two short preview cruises, Royal Princess will embark on a maiden voyage on June 16, followed by Grand Mediterranean cruises throughout the Summer and Eastern Caribbean cruises beginning in the Fall.
