Tahitian Princess to be renamed during makeover

Date Posted: 24 Nov 2009
One of Princess Cruises' prized vessels will receive a new name as part of its two-week renovation.

Tahitian Princess will be turned into Ocean Princess, with the makeover process documented in the latest edition of the Princess online dry dock journal.

Princess Cruises' executive vice president Jan Swartz said that the response to the journals had been "remarkable".

"This latest journal will give cruise fans yet another insiders' peek behind the scenes, with the added interest in seeing the name change," he commented.

Viewers of the journal will be able to see the vessel's name being removed and replaced on equipment such as the ship's lifeboats.

Following its renovation, the newly-named Ocean Princess will embark on a 16-day tour of south-east Asia from Singapore to Shanghai.

The cruise will begin Princess Cruises' winter season of voyages throughout Asia, India and Africa before it reverts back to Europe during the summer months.

Earlier this month, Tahitian Princess docked at Mumbai following a cruise from Muscat.

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! "
