Princess Cruises floats 143,700-ton Enchanted Princess in Italy

Published on : Thursday, September 19, 2019

Princess Cruises celebrated a significant construction milestone today with the recent float out of Enchanted Princess at its building dock at Fincantieri Shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. A ceremony marked the occasion as the ship has now officially met the ocean for the first time.

 

 

 

Following the Italian shipyard’s custom, the float out of a ship is celebrated by presenting a “madrina,” or godmother to “bless the ship” and celebrate the flow of water into the ship’s building dock. President and CEO Doris Magsaysay Ho of the Magsaysay Group in the Philippines, one of the largest and most trusted human resource companies in the Asia Pacific region, accepted a personal invitation from Princess Cruises president Jan Swartz, to serve in this special role. Ms. Ho has been at the helm of a long-standing partnership with Princess Cruises to recruit, train and develop skilled crew members who work onboard the cruise lines global fleet.

 

 

 

 

 

Jan Swartz, Princess Cruise’s president said that at Princess Cruises, their crew members are truly the heart of our company and the reason we are able to create memorable vacation experiences for our guests every day. Ms. Ho’s passion for the ship manning business and our seafarers led her to grow Magsaysay into the successful business it is today and we’re proud to employ more than 7,000 Filipino crew members onboard our ships. They are honoured to reflect on our successful partnership and proudly name her Madrina of Enchanted Princess.

 

 

 

 

Now that the ship is afloat, Enchanted Princess will be moved to the outfitting dock where final construction and interior furnishing will take place. Enchanted Princess is scheduled to debut on June 19, 2020 with a season of Mediterranean cruises.

 

 

 

 

The 143,700-ton ship carries 3,660 guests and will include the best of the stunning features found on Royal Princess, Regal Princess, Majestic Princess and Sky Princess, as well as new offerings that represent an evolution of the current ships’ designs.
