Sky Princess Officially Named by Princess Cruises

Princess Cruises has officially named its newest ship, the 3,660-guest Sky Princess, at a ceremony in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Former NASA engineer Frances Poppy Northcutt and former NASA astronaut Captain Kathryn Kay Hire served as the vessel’s godmothers.

Jan Swartz, president, Princess Cruises, said, “As we celebrate our newest, most technologically advanced ship, one whose spirit of adventure and discovery match the grandeur of her name, Sky Princess, we also applaud the groundbreaking women of the US space programme.”

The ship is an evolution of the design platform used for its three sister ships: Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess. Her new features will also be on another sister ship, Enchanted Princess, which launches in Southampton in June 2020.
