One of the most anticipated cruise ships of 2020, the Enchanted Princess, might very well be a 2021 debut after Jan Schwartz announced the delay in debut, but soon enough, we shall see her sailing the ocean blue! This vessel will set out to amaze all that sail on her. She will share all of the same remarkable style and luxury aspects as her sisters Royal, Regal, Majestic, and Sky Princess. Be sure to book a voyage on her inaugural season as she travels around both Europe and the Caribbean. The 144,650 gross registered ton Enchanted Princess will carry 3,360 guests and 1,346 crew members as she cruises the world, be the fifth vessel for the Royal Class of ships, and will debut some firsts for the line. She will span 15 decks and measures 330 meters. All in all, this vessel is built to stun all that sail upon her. One feature about this vessel that can’t go without mentioning is that this is a Medallion Class Ship. Your whole Princess experience will be taken into the future and to the next level. The Ocean Medallion, which is a quarter size disk that acts as your keycard, you are now able to have every aspect of your cruise improved.
Accommodations on the Enchanted Princess are very similar to her sisters but in specific the Sky Princess. The vessel has been equipped with the Sky Suite, which happens to have the largest balcony at sea, which offers over 1,000 square feet to take in your 270-degree view crowning the ship. The ship also has your usual mini-suite, balcony, oceanview, and interior cabins that are meet the Princess standards.
Dining on the Enchanted Princess is sure to be quite the culinary delight as you have over 15 different dining experiences to venture. If you are looking for a complimentary place to dine, perhaps try Gigi’s pizzeria, which is expected to serve the best pizza onboard or the Salty Dog Grill, where you could indulge in a burger and fries. But if you wanted to set your dining experience to the next level, then be sure to reserve a few specialty dining restaurants. Dine-in Bistro Sur La Mer to experience some of the finest French cuisine brought to you by chef Emmanuel Renaut or in Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria, where you can devour homemade pasta found in treasured family recipes amongst the crew.
This class of ship caters to every age group as it can be seen amongst their highlights. The Piazza, which is a hub of activities, was themed after the old European architecture. The three-story atrium hosts various musicians, “street performers,” and pop-up boutiques. This venue is home to the International Cafe, where you can purchase small pastries and coffee, along with the famous wine bar, Vines, which was voted one of the best wine bars at sea by USA Today.
If you are looking for a place to lay out in the sun or relax in one of the many pools/ hot tubs onboard, then be sure to make your way to the Lido deck. Both the Sky and Enchanted Princess differs from the rest of the class due to the new pool deck layout, which doesn’t feature the dancing fountains. This allowed for the shipbuilders to place more hot tubs throughout the ship.
Entertainment on this vessel is set to keep you engaged at every moment throughout your vacation. The redesigned Vista Show Lounge offers world-class entertainers on stage each night. These performers range anywhere from magicians and comedians to musicians and live bands. Take your live entertainment to the next level by watching one of the Broadway Style Productions in the Princess Theater.
Lastly, Princess Live offers some exciting talk/game shows. Throughout the sailing, you could perhaps audition for the Voice at Sea, where you can sing your heart out as you compete against your fellow passengers. Overall, the Enchanted Princess is set to debut as Princess’s 19th ship, and it is for sure to set their standards higher. The destinations in which she will sail will enhance the guest's experience as the cultures are brought aboard.
