Princess Cruises has announced it is continuing its tradition of inviting underprivileged children onboard its premium cruise liner.
This kicked off the homeporting season in Singapore; over 60 children from the Lakeside Family Service Centre and Beacon Primary School visited Sapphire Princess.
The group brought their family along too for a day of enjoying the ship tour with onboard activities and a tour specially organised by the ship’s dedicated Youth Staff.
Guests can note that the initiative is part of Princess’ corporate social responsibility programme in Singapore, designed to extend goodwill to the local community.
The cruise line also wish to highlight their commitment in caring for the community it operates in.
“We have celebrated the launch of our homeporting seasons in Singapore each year with a children’s event onboard and we are continuing this practice by treating the children to a day of food, games and entertainment onboard the Sapphire Princess.
It is truly heartening to see the smiling faces of the children and give them precious bonding time with their families onboard a world-class cruise liner” said Farriek Tawfik, Director of Southeast Asia, Princess Cruises.
The children and their families were also given a tour of the ship while it was berthed at its homeport, Marina Bay Cruise Centre.
The group discovered how meals are prepared for the ship’s guests and Captain Paolo Ravera set time aside to meet the children and their families and chatted with them before posing for group photos.
Sapphire Princess carries up to 2,670 passengers, 1,000 crew members and has begun its five-month homeport season in Singapore.
