Princess Cruises Completes Renovation of UK-bound Ship Crown Princess

Princess Cruises’, Crown Princess, has received a multi-million-pound two-week refit. Crown Princess now includes new dining venues, a luxury bed in every room and an upgraded spa and fitness centre.

Currently sailing the Mediterranean before a season in the Caribbean, Crown Princess will then be based in Southampton for the spring and summer of 2019 for a series of round Britain cruises.

New Luxury Beds

Crown Princess now features a luxury bed in every room, created exclusively for Princess Cruises in collaboration with Dr. Michael Breus. The luxury bed includes fine linens, enhanced mattress support and a king-size deluxe pillow available with feathers or anti-allergy microfibre.

Four top-deck outdoor dining venues

Crown Princess’ four top-deck outdoor dining venues have been enhanced and renamed:

» The Salty Dog Grill (formerly Trident Grill) will serve burgers, hot dogs and tacos made with grilled chipotle-lime chicken or roasted sweet potato-green chili

» Slice (formerly Prego Pizzeria) will serve signature Neapolitan-style pizza as well as new menu items

» Coffee & Cones (formerly Sundaes Ice Cream Bar) will offer gourmet ice-cream sandwiches, complimentary ice cream cones and speciality coffees

» The Mix (formerly Mermaid’s Tale) poolside bar has received a makeover

Other new features onboard include:

The onboard gym and spa have received modernised equipment and upgraded salon and treatments rooms

» The introduction of new children’s centre activities in association with the Discovery Channel

» A greater retail choice including a new fine jewellery shop, Effy

» New carpet, light fixtures and bar TV screens in the casino

» The line’s signature logo on the ship’s bow

The refit was completed in Freeport, Bahamas at the Grand Bahama shipyard and continues Princess’ ‘Come Back New Promise’ campaign, with £330m being invested across the line’s fleet of 17 ships.
