"The name 'Enchanted Princess' is captivating and conveys the elegance and grace of our new ship, which will introduce more travellers to the pleasures and value of cruising," Ms Swartz said. 

Construction on the Enchanted Princess will take place at the Fincantieri Monfalcone shipyard in Italy.

Enchanted will join its sister royal class ships Regal Princess, Royal Princess and Majestic Princess, with Sky Princess set to enter the fleet in October next year.
