Crown Princess to be girl's best friend

Date Posted: 30 Jun 2006
Passengers onboard the Princess Cruises ship Crown Princess could be feeling even more like royalty due to the company's latest idea.

When the new ship set sail just two weeks ago, it carried onboard $1 million (?550,000) worth of diamonds, including a 100-carat four-piece set.

Nicknamed the Crown Jewels, four lucky ladies will get the chance to pose for portraits with the diamonds on each of the Crown Princess' first eight voyages.

"Diamonds are indeed a girl's best friend, and we are pleased to offer passengers the opportunity to truly feel like 'red carpet royalty'... right down to the borrowed jewels," said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises' senior vice president of customer service and sales.

"It seems appropriate to offer our own Crown Jewels aboard this spectacular new ship."

For any passengers feeling particularly frivolous, Princess Cruises is also offering the Crown Jewels for sale.

The Crown Jewels collection includes a necklace, earrings, a bracelet and a ring and is valued at $585,000 (?320,000).

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
