Royal Princess reaches first-year milestone

September 23, 2014

Royal Princess this weekend marked its first year anniversary following entry into service last June.

The Princess Cruises vessel has been sailing all over the world since it was christened by the Duchess of Cambridge Katherine Middleton in what was her last public appearance before the birth of son Prince George.

In order to mark the occasion, guests sailing on the ship this weekend were treated to a range of festivities including a Royal Ball Birthday Party in the atrium.

Since its entry into active service, Royal Princess has carried a total of 150,000 guests over some 120,000 miles. It has completed 44 cruises, visiting 39 pots across 20 countries in the Mediterranean and Caribbean.

Over the next few months, it will be visiting destinations throughout Scandinavia and Russia, as well as sailing the waters around the British Isles, before heading to New York for its first New England and Canada season in the autumn.

Jan Swartz, president of Princess, said: “Today we look back with great pride as we celebrate the first birthday of Royal Princess

“She’s been a wonderful addition to our fleet and we’re delighted that she’s been so well received by our guests.”
