Princess Cruises Launches First-Ever Virtual Christening

Princess Cruises is putting a fresh spin on a maritime tradition. It is inviting anyone wishing to become an honorary godparent for its new vessel, Ocean Princess, to the first-ever virtual christening.

Each new godparent will trigger a $1 donation from Princess Cruises to the New England Aquarium.

The Ocean Princess departs Singapore on Wednesday on a 16-day Southeast Asia cruise. The virtual christening will last the duration of the inaugural voyage.

The online ceremony also entitles viewers to explore:
Ocean Princess webcam, featuring live footage of the ship

Ocean Princess Drydock Photo Journal
