Enchanted Princess is a Royal-class cruise ship operated by Princess Cruises, a subsidiary of Carnival Corporation & plc. Princess finalized the order for its fifth Royal-class ship in 2016 from Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri and her keel was laid down on 14 February 2019 in Monfalcone.
Enchanted Princess was originally expected to be delivered in June 2020, the ship was hampered by construction delays after Fincantieri’s operations were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and she was delivered three months later, on 30 September 2020.
After a year-long pause in operations amid the pandemic’s impact on tourism, Princess inaugurated the ship’s operations on 10 November 2021, when she set sail on her maiden voyage.
Enchanted Princess is a sophisticated cruise ship that delivers a wide range of activities both outdoors and in. It features a lovely range of public spaces that appeal to a variety of tastes — no easy task on a ship that carries 3,660 passengers. But it does so effortlessly, with great passenger flow and an environment that is inviting and relaxing.
The heart of the ship is the Piazza, a stunning, multilevel space inspired by the piazzas of Europe. Restaurants and bars surround the central space, which is always buzzing with activity, from music to balloon drops. It’s the best space onboard.
