Princess Cruises unveils entertainment programme on UK ship

Princess Cruises unveils entertainment programme on UK ship

Princess Cruises has announced its full entertainment programme on Crown Princess, one of its Southampton-based ships for this spring and summer. Crown Princess is sailing to the Mediterranean and northern Europe from now until September on seven and 14-night cruises.

Onboard activities will be launched such as a last night of the proms celebration, a first for Princess Cruises, and various themed activities including marking Shark Week throughout July in partnership with the Discovery Channel.

There will be performances from guest entertainers including Ria Jones, who has performed in leading roles in numerous West End musicals; ‘The Hollies’ singer Peter Howarth; and former winner of The Voice TV show, Leanne Mitchell.

A number of the main spring and summer sporting events will be available to view both in guests’ staterooms and on the top deck ‘Movies Under the Stars’ cinema screen. These include Premier League and Champions League football, the Ryder Cup and Wimbledon tennis.

Pop concerts will also be on both the big and small screen and feature the likes of Annie Lennox, Peter Gabriel, Sting and Lady Gaga.

And several UK TV channels will be to hand for the first time on a Princess ship - including BBC and ITV HD, Sky News and Sky Sports News - as well as a host of recent films.

In addition, themed food and drink will be served to mark special occasions and complement screenings. For instance champagne, Pimm’s and strawberries will be on offer during Wimbledon fortnight.
