Review: Enchanted Princess

cruise ship restaurant

Reviewed by Betsy Blumenthal

What is the line?  Princess Cruises

Name of ship?   Enchanted Princess

Passenger occupancy?  3,660

Itinerary?  Southern Caribbean with Curaçao

Like Goldielocks’s third bowl of porridge,  Enchanted Princess is just right as cruises go: large but not crowded, refined yet unstuffy, with good food, personalized service, and a wide array of activities and entertainment to suit the generalist cruiser. In other words, a real people-pleaser. 

Start out with the big picture—what is this cruise line known for?

Princess Cruises is perhaps best-known for its West Coast and Alaska itineraries, in addition to its family-friendliness and brand of affordable luxury: refined service and offerings without the sticker shock. They’re also known for their MedallionClass feature, smart tech that enables a mostly seamless on board experience. Passengers are given an OceanMedallion, a wearable button that corresponds to the package and room they’ve purchased. With it, most transactions are touch-free: “paying” is as easy as having someone scan your medallion; so is reboarding after a day out. The button also acts as a location device—so no matter where you are on the ship, whatever you order through the accompanying app (using the ship’s impressively zippy WiFi) somehow manages to find its way to you. Even your stateroom door unlocks as it senses your approach. You barely have to lift a finger, which, in my humble opinion, is just the way a vacation like this should be. 

Tell us about the ship in general  

When I sailed aboard  Enchanted Princess in December 2021, it had practically just left the building yard. (The handover of the ship took place in September 2020 in Trieste, Italy, and it made its U.S. maiden voyage in November 2021.) Everything was practically brand-new and sparkling clean. The ship has capacity for 3,660 passengers, though I don’t think it was totally full; as a result, it felt spacious and uncrowded. In terms of the ship’s distinguishing features, it’s home to Take Five, the only proper jazz venue at sea (aside from the Take Five onboard sister ships  Sky Princess  and  Discovery Princess ), and The Enclave at Lotus Spa, the line’s largest-ever thermal suite, home to a hammam, caldarium, laconium, and hydrotherapy pool. 

Who is onboard?

Without flattening them too much, the passengers generally hewed to the same profile: low-key couples in their late 40s and retired (or soon-to-be) couples in their 50s, 60s, and 70s, mostly American and British. They were all after a good time, but they weren’t especially rowdy. (To wit: on Formal Night, after a show let out in the Princess Theater, a small but energetic group of dressed-up couples took to the dance floor in the piazza and danced to golden oldies played by a live band; that was about as amped up as I ever saw anyone.) There were virtually no children, and very few younger couples or teenagers—and those who were there seemed to be guests of their parents or grandparents. So while there were certain elements that would’ve made this a nice trip for a family with young adults, that wasn’t the prevailing guest. No: These passengers were here for a nice, relaxed time—R&R with a few low-key excursions and activities sprinkled in for flavor. 

Describe the cabins

I stayed in a mini suite, which could accommodate a large king bed, a small bathroom (with a combination shower and bath), and a seating area with a couch, coffee table, and desk—and, most appealingly for me, a private balcony accessed through a floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door. It was plenty of room for one person, and would’ve comfortably fit two. (I also appreciated the two flat screen televisions mounted on the wall—one for the seating area, and one for the bed area—and I think most spouses and their football-watching partners would appreciate it, too!) The cabin was decently quiet, though on occasion, I could hear one of my neighbor’s TVs (and early-morning chatter) coming through the wall. There are a wide range of options beyond the mini suite; interior rooms without balconies, sprawling sky suites with room for five, a designated suite experience manager, and a 1,000-plus-foot balcony. It just depends on the experience you want, and what you’re willing to shell out for it. 

Tell us about the crew

Service falls somewhere between formal and casual; staff are exceedingly polite and obliging, but not so deferential that you feel haughty. All cabin levels come with complimentary 24-hour room service, while the posh sky suites come with their own suite experience managers. It was a breeze to order room service (or service anywhere on board the ship, thanks to the Medallion’s location-enabled features) through the MedallionClass app, and staff were prompt and kind. Service at the bars and restaurants on the ship was wonderful, too—attentive but never hovering.   

What food and drink options are available on board?

Personally, I’m a sucker for a good buffet—I love being able to try a little of everything, especially in an informal setting—so I absolutely loved World Fresh Marketplace, which served a rotating retinue of global dishes, from breakfast all the way through to dinner and dessert: an embarrassment of fresh fruit, warm bread rolls, roast pork, grilled chicken, sautéed vegetables in every conceivable sauce, charcuterie, curried chickpea stews, fried rice, a salad bar. There was endless variety, and everything was fresh, delicious, and regularly replenished. Passengers have three main dining rooms as included options: Capri, Amalfi or Santorini. All have the same menu, though their hours (and who can eat at each one) vary; meals are plated and served in courses. I only ate in one of them, and I found the food to be fine, but not worth writing home about. If I’m being honest, I much preferred the selection and preparation at World Fresh Marketplace. Other included options were the Salty Dog café, on the top deck, which offered a variety of poolside-friendly dishes (burgers, hot dogs); the piazza’s 24-hour international café, stocked with small-bite meals and snacks for noshing throughout the day, including croissants and little pot pies; Slice Pizzeria; and Ocean Terrace, the sushi bar (which, admittedly, I was pretty underwhelmed by).

I was also lucky enough to have access to the specialty dining venues as part of my experience, which come at an extra cost—and I was probably most impressed by these options. Among the highlights were Bistro Sur La Mer, the French bistro-style restaurant (the lobster bisque and île flottante were especially impressive); Crown Grill, the steakhouse (my filet mignon was cooked to absolute perfection); and Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria, which bowled me over from the house appetizer course (an impressive bread basket with a rustic whole-wheat loaf, tuscan zonzelle filled with roasted tomato & bell pepper passata, prosciutto crudo, extra virgin olive oil, and balsamic vinegar) to the toothsome and flavorful porcini mushroom risotto. I ordered steak at all of the specialty dining venues, and was absolutely confounded and delighted to note that each time, it was cooked to that perfect and ever-elusive medium rare-rare. I’ve been to steakhouses in New York City and Paris that haven’t nailed it the way they did. 

Is there a spa on board and is it worth visiting?

In a real rarity for me, I booked an entire day of pampering at the ship’s Lotus Spa—and I don’t regret it one bit. I conked out during a 100-minute treatment session that included my first-ever facial with Annalize, my South African therapist—who was so skilled and gentle that I immediately began looking into facialists when I got home—and then settled into a seat at the adjoining nail salon where Chevy, a nail technician from Jamaica, speedily aced my tricky almond shape. Dishant, my Indian hair stylist, expertly maneuvered his round brush through my heavy locks, coiffing them to perfection. By the time I walked out of there five hours later, I practically felt like a brand-new person. 

If I could’ve done it over, I would’ve also spent some downtime at The Enclave, an adjoining area with Princess’ largest-ever thermal suite and a hydrotherapy pool ringed by heated stone beds. You either need to have a certain cruise pass or secure a day pass to enter, but with a hammam, a caldarium, and a laconium (a dry, heated chamber), it’s worth the splurge.  

Activities and entertainment

There’s plenty to entertain on board, and it would be near impossible to take advantage of it all. Among the highlights are the Vegas-style casino; Take Five, the club with live jazz and cocktails (including specially crafted gin concoctions); Movies Under the Stars, the poolside amphitheater-style movie showings that take place both day and night (I myself enjoyed watching Shania Twain’s 2015 Las Vegas spectacular,  Shania: Still the One , one afternoon while I was tanning and sipping Dark n’ Stormys, and another day, a showing of  The Devil Wears Prada ); a sports venue on the top deck of the ship, including basketball courts (which can function as volleyball courts) and even a tiny mini putting green; a wrap-around track and fitness facilities; wine tastings; and line dancing. The list goes on. There are also several large venues, including Princess Live, which has a stage and hosts everything from trivia to lectures, and the two-level Princess Theater, the main evening venue, where the ship’s original live performances (as well as comedy and musical acts) take place. I didn’t see either of the shows,  5-Skies  or  Rock Opera —that’s not really my thing—but I did overhear passengers describe them in rapt detail after they let out. 

In truth, I spent most of my time at the Sky Pool on Deck 16—two pools set in the center of the ship—beneath the sun—splayed out on a lounge chair, occasionally heading up one level to take a dip in one of the hot tubs. I’d order a drink from my MedallionClass app and read, then head back to my room, shower off, and go up to the jogging track on the 18th deck to get in a few sunset laps before dinner. It was perfect—and proves that whether you choose to be ambitious or, like me, lazy,  Enchanted Princess can be a one-size-fits-all in the best possible way. 

Where did it sail and how were the excursions? Did anything stand out?

This particular 10-day route led us through the Caribbean—from Fort Lauderdale to the Bahamas, St. Thomas, Dominica, Curaçao, and Aruba, then back to Fort Lauderdale. I loved heading ashore to Princess Cays, Princess’s private resort in the Bahamas; it was nice to get off of the ship for a bit and onto dry land. Here, I was able to take out a one-person ocean kayak for a few hours, then set up camp on a lounge chair and bask in the sun with my toes in the sand until it was time to head back to the ship. I also particularly enjoyed the BBQ buffet they’d set up for lunch, and the selection of foods that were available: fresh salad from a salad bar (served by staff for safety), along with a selection of tasty grilled meats (chicken, burgers, hot dogs) and condiments. In Dominica, I opted for the scenic drive and visit to Trafalgar Falls, the island’s incredible twin waterfalls. Dominica has an extraordinary topography—very mountainous and lush—that’s quite the opposite of what most people imagine when they think of the Caribbean, and it was nice to see something a little different. After relaxing on the ship, I was happy to be able to stretch my legs and take a hike to the falls (even if it was pouring rain!). In St. Thomas, I was slated to take a Champagne catamaran sail and snorkeling session, which I was very excited about—but I hit a bad bout of seasickness and had to sit it out. Overall, I thought there was a good range of experiences to be had in each destination, and something to cater to every interest and inclination, from more historical and information-driven tours to opportunities to kick back and relax—or be active—on dry land. Of course, much of the activities were geared towards the draws of these destinations, in particular their beautiful beaches—so they leaned heavily toward water sports activities and time by the various beaches. 

Anything we missed?

Personally, one of my favorite features was the Capriccio String Trio; they played beautifully, and I loved sitting in the piazza and listening to them while I sipped on a cappuccino and read the day’s news. I was also grateful for the ship’s acknowledgement and celebration of Hanukkah, all but one day of which passed while the cruise was taking place. Each evening, the ship held a menorah-lighting in a quiet venue that wouldn’t be in use until later, and set out everything that was needed—the menorah, candles, matches, prayer books—even putting out freshly made potato latkes (with applesauce and sour cream) and sufganiyot, or traditional jelly donuts, every night. It was incredibly thoughtful, and having rarely been away from home for the holiday, I was really touched by it.  

Why is the cruise worth booking?

This is the bona fide “something for everyone” cruise. Young or old, active or roaring for relaxation, it finds a way to tick every box.

Nice break from winter!

Jan 30th, 2024

The ship was fabulous and the food is always exceptional. However I am disappointed in the number of perks Princess has eliminated, such as coffee package, now extra charge for Gigi’s and O’Mslleys.

Enchanted Princess - Mediterranean

Jan 7th, 2024

This was the first of a series of Back to Back cruises on Enchanted Princess during her Mediterranean season. We were on board from 15th April-8th July 2023. The whole experience was marvellous, we never had one single issue in that time frame on board. The crew were amongst the best we have seen at sea, a true credit to Princess, they truly made our cruise(s) and created everlasting memories. The food was truly delightful and the entertainment was of a high standard. We honestly feel that this series of B2Bs was one of the best we have ever done. We cannot help but smile fondly upon these memories. Here is to many more Princess cruises.

Nice ship. Staff is friendly and rooms were clean. Food was good with a nice variety on the buffet. Upcharges for some desserts and some dining is expected but it's getting pricey. These should be all inclusives.

Enchanted Princess

Enchanted Princess , the fifth ship in Princess Cruises ' Royal Class and the second with enhancements introduced on 2019’s Sky Princess, debuted in November 2021. Carrying 3,660 passengers, the ship sails itineraries mostly in the Caribbean and New England & Canada. As on  Sky Princess , the Royal Class’s signature SeaWalk has been tweaked to include two arcing glass-floored walkways allowing views of the waves 128 feet below, with the Seaview Bar now tucked between them. The adults-only Sanctuary and Retreat Pool remain the same. Like all Princess ships going forward, Enchanted Princess has the high-tech MedallionClass system to expedite boarding, access the best Wi-Fi, and help passengers navigate the ship, keep track of family and friends onboard, and order food or drinks for delivery.

The Pools and Hot Tubs:   Enchanted Princess  is one of the ships in the Princess fleet with the most pools (two deep-tank pools on the Lido Deck, a Retreat Pool and an aft Wake View Pool) and hot tubs (10 total). We were already fans of the relaxing, infinity-edged Wake View Pool on  Sky Princess  and this one is just as awesome.

The Sky Suites:  Introduced on  Sky Princess , these two suites on the Sky Deck (deck 18) are each 1,873 square feet, including a 1,000-square-foot wrap-around balcony offering 270-degree panoramas and private viewing of Movies Under the Stars. They feature two bedrooms, two baths, and a sofa bed, accommodating up to five guests.

The Specialty Dining Options:  Princess offers a really terrific selection of specialty restaurants — and the mix on Enchanted Princess is tough to beat. Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria is authentic in all the best ways and The Catch by Rudi features fresh seafood dishes by Chef Rudi Sodamin, Princess’ head of culinary arts, while O’Malley’s Irish Pub offers creative takes on pub favorites and Gigi’s Pizza by Alfredo serves up made-to-order individual pizzas. For a special dining experience, Chef’s Table Lumiere is an exclusive, multi-course tasting menu hosted by the ship’s executive chef. Plus, tried-but-true Crown Grill satisfies carnivores with aged, cooked-to-order cuts of steak, lobster and seafood, along with all the traditional sides.

Movies Under the Stars:  A Princess trademark, this nighttime ritual encourages passengers to claim a chaise around the Lido Deck pool, grab some free popcorn (or pizza or soft-serve ice cream), and enjoy a hit movie or a live sporting event on the massive screen overhead.

Crooners Piano Bar:  This lively bar on deck 6 is classic Princess and features an enthusiastic piano player taking requests from passengers, who often join in for a spirited sing-along.

Families with Kids Who Love to Learn or Perform:  With its Princess Live! TV production studio, Voice of the Ocean singing competition, and Discovery at SEA partnership, Princess ships are a great fit for kids into the creative arts and sciences. 

Cruise Traditionalists: You won’t find any of the “bells and whistles” offered on many large cruise ships aboard Enchanted Princess . There’s no waterslide, ropes course, or race track. You will find a terrific walking/jogging track, a basketball court, mini-golf, and ping pong tables.

Princess Ships Are Pretty, Not Cutting-Edge:  From its gold-hued European-inspired Piazza to its sleek, glass-floored SeaWalks on the Lido Deck,  Enchanted Princess , like her sisters, is an elegant ship with lovely design details — just don’t expect over-the-top spectacles.

The boat has 18 decks , of which 15 passenger-accessible and 8 with cabins.

These are also the fleet's largest cabins and with the fleet's largest balconies. Both Sky Suites are located midship on Sports Deck 18 (portside and starboard). Each Sky Suite has a wraparound terrace and provides a private view of the outdoor "Movies Under the Stars" theatre (fleet's biggest outdoor LED screen).

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

There are many for-fee dining options onboard Enchanted Princess, but guests who would rather not pay are offered enough quality and variety to satisfy. Those who prefer tradition will choose between the three main dining rooms: Amalfi, Capri, and Santorini.

Princess Cruises new ship design (Lido restaurant)

Horizon Court and Horizon Bistro are the buffet options, providing a more casual vibe. Passengers who want to have lunch in their swimsuits can take a burger from Trident Grill or a slice at Gigi's Pizzeria. Indoors, Alfredo's features delicious calzones, salads and thin-crust pizza. Allegro Dining Room is the only option for free dinner with traditional set dining. Passengers can eat at 5:45 PM or 8:15 PM. Allegro's menus are diverse and offer a soup or salad course, an appetizer, pasta and an entree. There is also a special dessert menu.

  • Salty Dog Grill (Deck 5) and Alfredo's Pizzeria (Deck 7/fleet's largest) are self-serve complimentary fast food venues. The rustic Salty Dog Gastropub is a new venue where passengers can watch sporting events, gather over small bites and drinks, and partake in Ernesto Burger by chef-partner Ernesto Uchimura (founding chef of the original Umami Burger and owner of the new LA-based restaurant and bar, Electric Owl).
  • (deck 5) O’Malley’s Pub is an Irish pub bar with traditional Irish music, food, alcoholic beverages (beers, ales, whiskeys) and live entertainment.

  • World Fresh Marketplace (self-service buffet restaurant, complimentary); Horizon Buffet (indoor sitting) and Horizon Terrace (outdoor seating)
  • Swirls Bar (ice cream)

Settimo Cielo (Deck 7) is the ship's "town square" lined up with Italian venues like Sabatini’s Trattoria, Bellini’s (cocktail bar), and Alfredo’s Pizzeria.

Sabatini’s Trattoria (a la carte-priced specialty restaurant on Deck 7) offers a 3-course Italian/seafood menu. Sabatini’s is open between 6 pm - 11 pm, and reservations are recommended. This space blends the spaciousness of a contemporary setting with classic Italian accents, featuring handmade pasta courses (via partnership with celebrity chef Angelo Auriana) which are prepared daily. Sabatini’s Trattoria also offers “Sabatini’s Bites” during wine tastings.

Bistro Sur La Mer (cover charge US$35 per person) was an authentic Parisian bistro with a fine dining dinner menu featuring French cuisine by Michelin-star chef Emmanuel Renaut. In 2023, La Mer was replaced with "The Catch by Rudi" (introduced on Enchanted Princess following the refurbishment in 2023).

"The Catch by Rudi" is Princess Cruises' first seafood-dedicated restaurant via partnership with celebrity chef Rudi Sodamin, who is also the Head of Princess Culinary Arts (onboard dining program).

  • The menu is predominantly of seafood dishes based on the freshest catch (sustainably sourced seafood from the current itinerary's ports of call) but also includes surf-and-turf options (including prime beef steaks), as well as vegetarian dishes, gourmet appetizers and desserts.
  • The specialty dining experience features creative and engaging food presentations, distinctive settings, and guests being welcomed at the tables with a cocktail crafted by Rob Floyd/celebrity mixologist and liquid chef).
  • The menu features "The Daily Catch" items (showcasing the freshest sustainably sourced seafood from local ports of call), international fusion influences (playful twists on seafood favorites like Asian-fried calamari), Rudi Sodamin's contemporary interpretations of classic dishes (like lobsters with garlic butter crust), and signature inventions from his personal repertoire (like Towering Trio, Whole Dover Sole). The Seafood Trolly is a true feast as the dish is piled high with fresh lobster tails, shrimps, oysters, mussels, and other seafood.
  • The Catch by Rudi's wine selection is carefully curated to pair with seafood. The waitstaff is knowledgeable (sommelier instructed) to offer recommendations for white, red, rose, and sparkling wines from various coastal wine-growing regions.

The Catch by Rudi's cover charge is US$39 pp and is also included in the Princess Premier package (premium add-on).

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

The bulk of performance action takes place in the 2-level Princess Theater (decks 6 and 7). This is the ship's main show lounge with palladium-style seating and grand-style evening show productions.

Princess Cruises new ship design (Theater Lounge)

Theatre Lounge doesn't offer tables or drink holders, so if you order one preshow or come with a drink, you'll have to hold it. The entertainment program is excellent and varied, with a beat that is quite innovative. In addition to the production shows, the Princess theatre hosts other acts including vocalists and instrumentalists.

The ship has 4 swimming pools and 10 outdoor Jacuzzies/whirlpool hot tubs.

In comparison to Royal-Class Princess ships, Enchanted Princess has the new Wakeview swimming pool (aft-located) plus 2 deep-water top deck swimming pools and Retreat Pool (adults-only), also more Jacuzzis (including 2 cantilevered, over the deep-water pools). The expanded Sanctuary area offers new design and twice as many private cabanas as the sister ships. Vista Lounge is also redesigned. The Princess Live! and Cafe is a new restaurant serving quick bites, brand teas and barista-made coffees. The venue offers premium drinks and live performances.

On the sisterships Sky and Enchanted, Princess Cruises introduced the exclusive "Jim Henson’s Inspired Silliness" - a 30-min live production show themed on Jim Henson’s hilarious puppetry works. James Maury Henson (1936-1990) was a US puppeteer, animator, cartoonist, actor and filmmaker, best known as the creator of "The Muppets" (TV show created in 1955). The cruise company's new production show (hosted at Princess Theater) includes singers and dancers, high-tech visuals, comedy acts and professional puppetry. The show starts with a video introduction by James Henson's son (Brian) and features new puppets from Henson’s Creature Shop plus newly designed characters.

The Experience Center (Deck 18 aft-starboard) has max capacity of 6 people and no age restrictions. This is ship's Escape Room hosting the "Phantom Bridge" game that combines physical and virtual/digital elements for unique puzzle-solving experiences at sea. The attraction is part of Princess Cruises' onboard enrichment program (Discovery at SEA) and offers interactive (real-world + virtual) adventure gaming experiences with 700+ different outcomes. Phantom Bridge's gaming sessions last 23 min each and allow passengers to navigate the virtual cruise liner, watch as the generated simulations change, uncover the clues and solve puzzles (current game's mystery). The implemented technologies include a physical steering wheel and touch-screen surfaces (in the room), projection mapping, top-notch sound-, lighting- and digital effects, hidden physical elements (throughout the ship).

Itineraries

Enchanted Princess itinerary program was originally planned to start in 2020 with an inaugural season in Southern Europe, with departures from homeports Civitavecchia-Rome , Barcelona and Piraeus-Athens . The 7-day Mediterranean itineraries were combinable into 14-day and 21-day B2Bs (back-to-back cruises) .

  • The Maiden Voyage was initially scheduled for June 18, 2020 (11-day Rome to Southampton England ). On July 1 was the repositioning sailing from Southampton to Rome (10-day) and to Athens (17-day).
  • For November 5 was scheduled a 14-day Transatlantic repositioning crossing from Europe to the USA (Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale).

Due to the ongoing COVID-related international travel restrictions, Princess Cruises eventually canceled the fleet's entire program through early-July 2021.

  • Enchanted Princess' Inaugural Cruise was first rescheduled for January 2, 2021 (7-day Western Caribbean roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale Florida ).
  • In December 2020, the Maiden Voyage was rescheduled for May 22, 2021 (7-day Mediterranean and Adriatic roundtrip from Civitavecchia-Rome).
  • In early-March 2021 were canceled 8 more itineraries and the Maiden Voyage was rescheduled for July 3 (7-day Mediterranean from Rome).
  • In mid-May 2021 was canceled the new ship's entire Mediterranean 2021 program (26 total itineraries) based on homeporting in Civitavecchia and Barcelona. The latest cancellations included the 15-day Transatlantic crossing from Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale. Mediterranean itineraries included 7-day roundtrips combinable into 14-day and 21-day B2Bs.
  • The Inaugural Cruise was rescheduled for November 10, 2021 (the liner's first departure date) - 10-day "Southern Caribbean with Curacao" and 20-day "Caribbean Explorer" (B2B).

Enchanted Princess Wiki

The vessel's powerplant includes four Wartsila marine diesel engines (model 46F, 2x 12V and 2x 14V) with combined power output 62,4 MW (83,700 hp). The propulsion system is based on two azipods with combined power output 18 MW (24,000 hp).

The ship has Fincantieri Monfalcone yard/hull number 6275, volume 145281 GT-tons, DWT-deadweight tonnage 11658 tons, LOA length 330 m, beam 38 m (max width 47 m/including the Navigation Bridge's wings), max draught 8,6 m.

In April 2016, Princess Cruises (via Carnival Corporation ) signed a shipbuilding order for 2 new vessels , scheduled for deliveries in 2019 ( Sky ) and 2020 (Enchanted). These are 4th and 5th Royal-class liners (same-designed as Royal, Regal and Majestic ) constructed at Fincantieri Monfalcone Shipyard (near Trieste ) as part of a previous agreement between Carnival Corporation (shipowner) and Fincantieri (shipbuilder). At that time, Carnival Corp had a total of 16 shipbuilding orders, with scheduled deliveries between 2016-2020. All these new vessels are fleet's largest and feature Movies Under the Stars (outdoor theatre), Piazza Atrium, 80% balconied staterooms, new dining venues.

At the end of January 2017, Carnival Corporation announced 2 more shipbuilding orders. The new liners were ordered for the fleets of Princess (Royal-class / Discovery Princess ) and Holland America Line (Pinnacle-class / Nieuw Ryndam-Rotterdam ). Carnival signed an MoA (memorandum of agreement) with Fincantieri to construct both vessels, with scheduled deliveries in 2021 (for HAL, at Marghera yard) and 2022 (for Princess, at Monfalcone yard). By the time when both contracts were finalized (February 2017), Carnival Corporation had a total of 19 new ships scheduled for delivery between 2017 and 2022.

Fun facts: It takes 3 million man-hours (~6000 employees) to build a Royal-class cruise ship. For its construction are used 37,000 tons of steel. For instance, about 12,000 tons of steel were used for constructing the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles . The paint used for the vessel is 95,000 gallons (360,000 L), which is twice the quantity consumed for Golden Gate Bridge (re-painted annually). The electrical cables wiring the whole vessel are long 2484 ml (4000 km) which is enough to link NYC with LA .

The vessel's keel-laying ceremony was held on February 14, 2019. On the same day was launched (floated-out from drydock) the sistership Sky Princess (inaugurated in October 2019) and also was held the steel-cutting ceremony for the 6th (final) Royal-Class liner ( Discovery Princess , scheduled inauguration in 2022). During the keel-laying, the traditional coin ceremony was "modernized". To bring good luck, instead of a metal coin, into the hull was welded an OceanMedallion device.

The vessel was launched (floated out from Monfalcone's drydock) on August 6, 2019. The float-out ceremony was attended by Firouz Mal (Princess Cruises' Director of Building Services) and Roberto Olivari (Monfalcone Shipyard's Director). The ceremony's Godmother was Marinella Cossu (shipyard employee). Since 1990, Fincantieri had built 92 cruise liners, of which 66 for Carnival Corporation (16 for Princess) plus 54 units under construction or on order (as of 2019).

The new ship was officially delivered by Fincantieri Monfalcone on September 30, 2020, as the 100th Fincantieri-built cruise vessel. The special ceremony was attended by Giuseppe Bono (Fincantieri's CEO), Roberto Olivari (Fincantieri Monfalcone's Director), Nick Nash (ship's Captain) and virtually (via live streaming) also by Micky Arison ( Carnival Corporation 's Chairman), Arnold Donald (Carnival Corporation's President and CEO), Stein Kruse ( Holland America Group 's CEO) and Jan Swartz ( Princess Cruises ' and Carnival Australia's Group President).

Enchanted Princess' christening ceremony was initially scheduled to be held in Port Southampton (England UK) on June 30 (2020) - a day before the Maiden Voyage (July 1-11) from Southampton to Civitavecchia-Rome . Bookings were opened on November 8, 2018.

The ship's Masters/Captains were announced in late-June 2019. Captain Nick Nash (previous commander of Royal Princess ) brings the vessel into service from Monfalcone Shipyard. Captain Gennaro Arma (ship's permanent Master) serves together with Massimiliano Imperiale (Chief Engineer), Richard Harry (Hotel Manager) and Richard Dalton (Staff Captain).

  • Captain Gennaro Arma (from Sorrento, Italy) is with Princess Cruises since 1998. He became Master in 2015 (on Sea Princess ).
  • Massimiliano Imperiale is with Princess since 1999 (starting as Engine Cadet) and was first appointed as Chief Engineer Officer in 2013 (on Caribbean Princess ).
  • Richard Harry (from Farnborough, England) is with Princes since 1988 (starting as Front Desk Receptionist).
  • Richard Dalton (from Isle of Bute, Scotland) is with Princess since 2001 and became Staff Captain in 2017.

The rescheduled christening/naming ceremony was on December 13, 2021, held at Port Everglades/Fort Lauderdale Florida USA (the ship's Caribbean homeport during the inaugural season). On November 30th were announced the names of the three godmothers - Lynn Danaher, Vicki Ferrini and Jenifer Austin.

  • Since 1994, Lynn Danaher is a USCG Captain (Licensed Ship Master and Dive Master). Since 2008 she is the PIRI's President (Pacific Islands Research Institute/non-profit supporting research expeditions, documentary films, educational efforts). Since 2013 she is the co-founder of the Friday Harbor Film Festival (held annually in Friday Harbor WA).
  • Vicki Ferrini has a Master's Degree in Marine Environmental Science (completed in 1998) and a PhD in Coastal Oceanography (completed in 2004) - both at NYC's Stony Brook University. She is also a Senior Research Scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (NYC's Columbia University). Since 2021 she is a member of NYC's The Explorers Club (1904-founded international multidisciplinary professional society promoting scientific explorations and field studies).
  • Jenifer Austin is the founder and manager of Google's Ocean Program (Google Earth and Google Maps), including Google Maps' Underwater Streetview and the website Global Fishing Watch (via partnership with Oceana and SkyTruth) and also a member of The Explorers Club.

Enchanted Princess refurbishment 2023

During the ship's drydock refurbishment in 2023 (March 30 thru April 15, conducted by Fincantieri at the shipyard in Palermo Sicily ) on Enchanted Princess debuted "The Catch by Rudi" (Princess Cruises' new specialty seafood restaurant) via partnership with celebrity chef Rudi Sodamin, who is also the Head of Princess Culinary Arts). The Catch by Rudi restaurant (on Deck 5/across from the Reception) replaced the old "Bistro Sur La Mer" (restaurant by Michelin Star Chef Emmanuel Renaut, on Deck 7) while Sabatini’s Restaurant was relocated from Deck 5 to Deck 7 (Piazza Atrium, where was previously Bistro Sur la Mer).

The drydocking project also included renovation of public spaces, regular maintenance works, as well as underwater hull cleaning/painting.

Inaugural cruise itineraries 2021-2022

Due to the Coronavirus crisis, the vessel's delivery from Fincantieri Monfalcone was delayed and a total of 11 itineraries (July 1st through and including 29th) were canceled. Eventually, due to the ongoing health crisis, Princess canceled the Enchanted ship's entire program through November 2021, and the Inaugural Cruise was rescheduled first for May 22nd, then for July 3rd, and finally for November 10th.

Review: Enchanted Princess - 11/23/23, 15-day TA Civitavecchia to Fort Lauderdale

Cool Cruiser

" Thank you for the great review! "

Kmkub was awarded the badge 'Great Review' and 10 points.

This is a review of the Enchanted Princess, which was host to our first Transatlantic cruise. The first half of this 15-day adventure was basically a regular 7-day with ports. The second half was nothing but sea days… aka pure bliss.  

I don’t have names of people I’ll mention and won’t remember many food dish names. I let myself off the hook from taking copious amounts of notes this trip.

Feel free to ask me any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them.

Hands down, this was our favorite cruise to date. For reference, we started in ’08 and now have 15 behind us; 10 of those are Princess. This was our second time on the Enchanted. I gave them a glowing, practically gushing, review in January 2022. This one is more negative, but where we ran into negatives, we just found workarounds. We don’t let this or that thing ruin our cruise.     It was our favorite cruise due to all the sea days. On a seven day, it’s wonderful, but it’s not a ton of relaxation, with all the ports. The second half with nothing but sea days allowed us to truly get out of the chaos and stress from our everyday lives. We were able to process and think and discuss without all the noise. It was a huge positive for us, in that regard.  

As to the ship itself, all the amazing food we had on our last enchanted cruise, brought us back again. Now, it seems unlikely that we’ll return to this particular ship, because the food is no longer a draw, and the new piazza layout isn’t conducive for, say, quiet dining at Sabatini’s or enjoying a martini at Crooner’s. There is also a fair amount of venue to venue spillover that may spoil a drink at Crown Grill.  

There’s a lot of firsts for us, so I’ve opinions I’ve never had before.

First, we’ve never given the   cruise director   much notice, before. I never saw them as integral to the experience. Jayson convinced me I was wrong. His “Wake Show,” was interesting and informative, and he was out and about more than other CDs (on any cruise line.) I got to speak to him very briefly on three separate occasions, at completely random times. He was just present, as was his staff.

Another first for us was attending some of the lectures offered in the theater. We attended lectures called “Behind the Seas,” which gave insight into how the ship runs. Both lectures we attended were very interesting.  

We also attended an interactive lesson on seeing the stars. This was on deck 19, at night. The ship turned off all the lights up there, so we could study the sky in complete darkness. It was amazing. We had to leave early, since my neck can’t handle too much looking straight up, but it was fun.

The Piazza   is too busy, IMO. It’s definitely busier than when we sailed in January, 22. Exercise, line dancing classes, strange games (like getting ping pong balls out of a box attached to your butt,) are ever-present. The calm, peaceful place it used to be is now non-existent. Everything is too much, too loud, too crowded, etc. It was just overkill. Bring back the string duos that create a peaceful atmosphere.

In addition to that,   Crooners   is no longer a piano bar. With all the noise coming from deck 5 that wafts through decks 6 & 7, anything in that area is just about hearing what’s going on on the piazza floor.   Sabatinis , which used to be nicely tucked away all the way aft on the Grand Class, is now a recipient of this noise as well.

The   entertainment   was mostly bleh. I don’t know their names, but two ladies who played violin and cello were fantastic, and anytime we were in Crown Grill when they were there, we’d stay until their performance was over; even when there was noise spillover from Princess Live. The same goes for the two gentlemen who performed in O’Malley’s. The rest were just bad. Two were so quiet you could barely hear them sing, and couldn’t hear them talk, at all. One riffed on songs so much that they were mostly unrecognizable.  

We wanted to see Rock Opera, but, unfortunately, they showed it on the first full day, so we completely missed it. I had no idea they would only perform it once on a 15-day. We didn’t see any other production shows; though we peered into several to see if we wanted to go sit down. We didn’t.

We purchased a pass   for   The Enclave   . I spent somewhere between 20-25 hours in there; getting therapy from the thalassotherapy pool, hanging in one of the saunas, or reading from the heated stone beds. I love it in there. The pool has powerful jets that pound on sore muscles; some bubble stalls for increasing circulation, a spring shower and metal beds with additional bubblers.

This is one of the best places on the ship. That said, it was fairly inconsistent, in terms of temperature. Some days it was really nice and hot and other days it was cooler; sometimes so cool as to be useless. They also had the usual cucumber or lemon water available for about half the voyage disappear mid-cruise. No real good reason as to why was provided; just shoulder shrugs. Kind of a stinky cost cutting measure. You can get thirsty in there. So boo on that. I wouldn’t dissuade someone who enjoys these types of spas, though, just based on that. The temperature variation is the biggest concern. Why the rapid and dramatic temperature changes? No two days were the same.

Football/NFL   has it’s own in-cabin channel, now, so we got to see a lot of football. Since we started in Rome, some of the Sunday/Monday night games didn’t start until Tuesday morning, so we weren’t up to see the end of a lot of those games. Spread the news, though – Yes, you will see your games on Princess. For the Sunday games, they added a second channel, so two games were available for each time slot.

MUTS     showed several games, but didn’t cover all the available time slots. For one game that we wanted to see, we specifically asked guest services if it would be shown, and the answer was yes. What they actually showed, though, was “80 for Brady.”

The service desk;   Loyalty, Future cruise and excursion   hours are awful. Not enough hours in the day and long lines every time they are open. If this is a cost cutting measure, it’s a terrible one. They need more hours and/or more people.     I talked to one lady who had been waiting an hour to ask a question.

Retail stores   have their own little strip mall, just off the front elevators on deck 7.     I don’t get how these shops make money. With the ability to look up everything online and price compare, you’d think people would opt for the less expensive price at home, even with the duty free. My at-home, walk out the door price for Hennessy XO is $30 less than what the Princess shop was offering. Sheesh.

We also didn’t like the yard sale feel of the area, as they bring out temporary tables and offer “sales.” A $435 cloth tote bag is now only $289. Yikes.

Funny story – one of these yard sale offerings was buy 4 fanny packs and get the 5 th   free. LMAO. Who needs that many fanny packs?

There’s high pressure, sometimes, just for having the audacity to want to browse and see what’s for sale.

There are deals to be had; I saw a few blouses in the $20 range, which is very reasonable.

—To be continued (food is next.)

We both (Nerd & I,) have a lot of opinions about   food . Some highlights (and lowlights,) are below. I have pictures on various devices and will post them when I get them all in one spot.

The old   World Fresh Marketplace/buffet   no longer exists, really. It’s the same thing, day after day. It’s boring, and tasteless (mostly.)  

Previously, we’ve both championed the buffet. It’s a great, quick alternative. Not everything was a winner, but there was always something for everyone to make some kind of perfectly agreeable breakfast or lunch, if there were time constraints or a desire for a completely informal experience.

Every day I looked at the same turkey-lamb gyros meat, that resembled bad jerky more than anything else.

The breakfast sausages get dry because they let the chafing dishes run out of water, which creates a burned chafing dish.

The pre-printed signs have typos, like “Chicken borth,” and “mapple syrup.” I’m not kidding.

Eggs; runny. Chips; stale. Bread; dry and cold. Meat; dry and overcooked. That’s the idea.

The morning ham and hard boiled eggs are fine, but if you try to get a piece of bacon, you can either have eight pieces, all stuck together, or you can have a few bacon bits. It’s a bit gross.

It’s incredibly disappointing. Our last trip on enchanted had us loving so many things about the buffet. It’s all gone.

The one truly redeeming quality were the fresh made waffles. Delicious. They go well with the mapple syrup.

The   Salty Dog   is also showing signs of decline. The hot dogs are too dry; the cheese for the burger is that fake “American cheese food,” crap that gets individually wrapped for use in grammar school lunches. There’s no yellow mustard for the hot dogs. The burgers are without flavor.  

The   International Café   was also a bit of a disappointment. Every day, it’s the same offerings as the previous day. Nothing changes. That’s not the IC I remember. The food here is also not very good. The salami sandwich I tried was inedible. The only thing I found worth eating was the breakfast sandwich, and only because IC was literally the only place to get food at the time. It wasn’t, however, quite as good as the famous fast food restaurant’s version of the same sandwich.

The pizza from   Alfredo’s   is about the same as it used to be, though the lack of Parmesan cheese at the station is a puzzler.     There are some weird concoctions, like pizza topped with canned tuna, and the pepperoni is not a dried meat I’ve ever tasted. Nerd still likes it, but I don’t eat it.

Gigi’s   was another venue that has taken a turn for the worse. It’s upcharge, now, but we were willing to pay for the veal agnolotti that we loved so much in 2022. Our first and only trip there had us extremely disappointed in the dish. It was completely dry and lacked sauce and flavor. The manager asked us how it was, and we were completely honest. She said that she’s receiving multiple reports that are the same. Corporate changed the recipe on them. I never understand why you change something delicious in favor of something dry and without flavor. It’s a head scratcher.

Room service   was another disappointment. My old favorite, the fish tacos with avocado cream are gone. The choices that are complimentary are severely limited, now. You can order from the specialty restaurants, for a fee. The free options are mostly limited to a burger, a hot dog, a few sandwiches and a couple of desserts. In addition, without the right package, it is a $15 one-time charge to get access to room service. The decision is either to use room service or not. Getting one thing from room service on the cruise is cost prohibitive. The saving point is that you can get alcoholic drinks delivered, even if you have the plus package.  

The   Geletaria   has great gelato. We ate there twice. There doesn’t seem to be any rotation of flavors, even though the MDR does have different flavors every day.  

My complaint with this venue is the inefficiency in how they serve customers. The line is long, and there is no signage to help you know what’s available. They need signs! Here’s our flavors, here’s our toppings, here’s the sauces, here’s the cost. You are basically standing behind people who have to hear what’s available when they get to the counter to order. If you are second in line, you may be able to hear the various sauce choices. This is an easy fix!!

O’Malley’s   is new for us. There was just a basic bar there when we were last on the ship. The food is upcharge, and is fantastic. The blue cheeseburger was delicious. I think I ate three of them (at $10/each.) Nerd loved the onion rings and fish n chips. We both tried the French onion soup with cheddar. It was delicious, and better than what they serve in MDR. It’s not as good as the black and blue soup from Crown Grill, though. ;).  

We spent more time in the   MDR   than we usually do, because the buffet area was just so sad. For the most part, the service here was top-notch. Props to the Maitre’D. He was ever present.  

I have to say that both breakfast and lunch here were really good. The main complaint is how long it takes to eat those meals, when we are more “grab and go,” types of people.  

Most dinners we ate in the MDR were very good to excellent. I’d say the exception is the seafood, which pales in comparison to The Catch. This is to be expected, however.   J

Crown Grill   remains a favorite of ours. We never miss Crown Grill, and we just did our 10 th   Princess cruise. The beef tartar and black & blue soup never disappoint.     This time, we opted for lobster instead of steak, and it was delicious. In our opinion, Crown grill is on our permanent “recommended,” list. I hope that never changes.

The Catch   Wow. This new addition is amazing. We were blown away by the experience.     Our waiter had the brilliant audacity to offer us better options than what we originally thought we wanted.     Every dish was as good as the next. We had some of everything; fish, shrimp, clams, mussels, oysters, crab, lobster – did I leave anything out? LOL. My only disappointing dish was the berry soufflé for dessert. I just didn’t like it at all. It was my first soufflé, ever, so maybe I just don’t like them. I have several pictures from this restaurant.

Great review - thanks

The bread course at The Catch. I don’t remember what it was, but I do remember loving it. The bread was warm. It was some sort of spread. Hopefully, someone who has been to this venue remembers.

Very disappointing to hear about the buffet. It's almost hard to accept that it's gone that far downhill.  😪

I’m hoping it’s just the ship’s situation and not a fleet wide issue. We completely intend on sailing Princess again. It’s time for us to go back to the Grand class ships. We’ve been doing Royal class since the launch of the Royal. 

The buffet quality is one of the good things about Princess, so I’m really hoping it’s a one-off.

Holiday Sharing

11 hours ago, Kmkub said: We purchased a pass   for   The Enclave   . I spent somewhere between 20-25 hours in there; getting therapy from the thalassotherapy pool, hanging in one of the saunas, or reading from the heated stone beds. I love it in there. The pool has powerful jets that pound on sore muscles; some bubble stalls for increasing circulation, a spring shower and metal beds with additional bubblers.   This is one of the best places on the ship. That said, it was fairly inconsistent, in terms of temperature. Some days it was really nice and hot and other days it was cooler; sometimes so cool as to be useless. They also had the usual cucumber or lemon water available for about half the voyage disappear mid-cruise. No real good reason as to why was provided; just shoulder shrugs. Kind of a stinky cost cutting measure. You can get thirsty in there. So boo on that. I wouldn’t dissuade someone who enjoys these types of spas, though, just based on that. The temperature variation is the biggest concern. Why the rapid and dramatic temperature changes? No two days were the same.   Football/NFL   has it’s own in-cabin channel, now, so we got to see a lot of football. Since we started in Rome, some of the Sunday/Monday night games didn’t start until Tuesday morning, so we weren’t up to see the end of a lot of those games. Spread the news, though – Yes, you will see your games on Princess. For the Sunday games, they added a second channel, so two games were available for each time slot.   MUTS     showed several games, but didn’t cover all the available time slots. For one game that we wanted to see, we specifically asked guest services if it would be shown, and the answer was yes. What they actually showed, though, was “80 for Brady.”   The service desk;   Loyalty, Future cruise and excursion   hours are awful. Not enough hours in the day and long lines every time they are open. If this is a cost cutting measure, it’s a terrible one. They need more hours and/or more people.     I talked to one lady who had been waiting an hour to ask a question.   Retail stores   have their own little strip mall, just off the front elevators on deck 7.     I don’t get how these shops make money. With the ability to look up everything online and price compare, you’d think people would opt for the less expensive price at home, even with the duty free. My at-home, walk out the door price for Hennessy XO is $30 less than what the Princess shop was offering. Sheesh.   We also didn’t like the yard sale feel of the area, as they bring out temporary tables and offer “sales.” A $435 cloth tote bag is now only $289. Yikes.   Funny story – one of these yard sale offerings was buy 4 fanny packs and get the 5 th   free. LMAO. Who needs that many fanny packs?   There’s high pressure, sometimes, just for having the audacity to want to browse and see what’s for sale.   There are deals to be had; I saw a few blouses in the $20 range, which is very reasonable.   —To be continued (food is next.)

I really hope you did the survey and mentioned the LOUD piazza games, dancing, etc.  We hated it and couldn’t even have a conversation.  TIA

We just got off the Ruby & expressed the same thoughts as you about their buffet.

Lets hope it's just an experienced crew that hasn't been trained properly yet. 

I would hate to think that Princess has let their food/cooks degrade that much especially after being great for so many years.

The extremely loud Piazza seems to be a trademark of Princess lately. More & more people are complaining. 

1 minute ago, Kmkub said: Oh. 😞   I really hope they send me a post-cruise survey. I didn’t get one last cruise.

My husband & I both received one from the Ruby. I'm sure they were delighted to hear back from us.  😆

Haha

The worst was the Enchanted!  Felt like Carnival.  Huge piazza and filled starting at 9  am line dancing, games, etc.  So loud, the bar hostess couldn’t even hear our orders, nor GS could hear us.  So bad, all three levels.

Too bad.  Loved the ship, otherwise.

We got ours the same day we disembarked for each b2b.

@MissP22  or @PacnGoNow  - do either of you have the email? The subject line will help me search my email. I really do want to provide feedback.

@Kmkub FWIW, We received our surveys before we were off the ship.

Us too, on disembarkation day. 

We found both surveys in my husband’s email. There was an issue with my account that had his email in mine, but we fixed it onboard. It seems it didn’t have time to propagate the change throughout all their various systems.

I filled it out. I mentioned piazza noise at least six times!! 

Thanks, everyone.
