Princess Cruises has announced that when its next new ship, Enchanted Princess, debuts in June 2020, it will be named in Southampton, UK and sail its inaugural season in the Mediterranean. Princess has also unveiled new details on the offerings onboard the ship.
As previously announced for its sister ship Sky Princess, Enchanted Princess will also have the new Sky Suites, centrally located on the top deck of the ship and offering the largest private balconies ever offered by Princess Cruises. Measuring 700 square feet, the balconies will provide a private vantage of the ship’s Movies under the Stars screen and create an ideal space for entertaining. The two suites will also offer a 270-degree panorama and have sleeping capacity for five guests, and more for entertaining - making them ideal for families.
Debuting in the Mediterranean in June 2020, the 143,700-ton Enchanted Princess will include the best of the new experiences found on Sky Princess including a Wakeview pool on its aft decks and Sanctuary area offering a new contemporary design with more private cabanas than ever before.
In addition, Enchanted Princess will offer things from its three other sister ships - Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess – including an Italian-inspired Piazza, over-the-ocean glass, Seawalk and Broadway-caliber shows performed in the Princess Theater.
Some new offerings that represent another evolution of the current ships’ designs on Enchanted Princess will be a reimagined Salty Dog Gastropub. The pub space will be a new venue where guests can watch sporting events, gather with friends over drinks and small bites, and partake in the award-winning Ernesto Burger, created by chef partner, Ernesto Uchimura, a founding chef of the original Umami Burger and owner of the new Los Angeles based neighborhood restaurant and bar, Electric Owl.
Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria, Princess Cruises’ specialty restaurant, will also be transformed. The space will blend classic Italian accents with the spaciousness of a modern setting, offering handmade pasta courses developed in collaboration with Los Angeles chef Angelo Auriana that will be prepared fresh daily.
The Princess Live! and Café will have a new art deco-style décor where guests can enjoy drinks and small bites while watching live performances or enjoying an intimate gathering.
