Enchanted Princess, launching in 2020, offers a similar sailing experience to her sister ships (Sky Princess, Regal Princess, Royal Princess and Majestic Princess) in the Princess fleet. With Enchanted Princess, guests can sail away in style and come back new from a luxurious and memorable cruise onboard this brilliant vessel.
The ship itself is stunning; from the wealth of accommodation choices including the spectacular Sky Suite, which can host up to five guests and boasts a 700 square-foot balcony, to the grand piazza complete with street performers, which will make you feel like you’re in a European town square whether you’re in Alaska, the Mediterranean or the Caribbean. A cruise holiday onboard Enchanted Princess is a truly fabulous experience that will leave you feeling refreshed and spoiled.
Dining onboard Enchanted Princess can be either traditional – with consistent tables, waiters, and mealtimes – or casual, with Anytime Dining. The latter option means you can eat anytime between 5.30pm and 10pm, with fellow cruisers or simply with your own party.
Restaurants onboard are distinctly different, while maintaining a high standard of luxury food and service throughout. Princess Cruises’ team of expert chefs take fresh, local ingredients and transform them into undeniably delicious dishes. The main dining room offers a varied menu, including dishes created by award-winning chef, Curtis Stone, as well as decadent chocolate desserts by master chocolatier Norman Love.
