Once again, Princess Cruises is taking us behind the scenes on yet another extensive drydock refit, though this time it has a slightly different twist: readers get to follow along as Tahitian Princess is transformed into Ocean Princess.

From November 19th to December 2nd, viewers will be able to watch the refurbishment process take place as the ship is not only revitalized both inside and out, but rebranded as Ocean Princess.  This includes the removal of the name on the bows and stern of the ship, as well as lifeboats, life rings, and signage throughout the ship. 

Tahitian Princess was so-named because her original itineraries seldom took her outside of, surprise, Tahiti.  However, as the smaller ships of Princess experience more demand in a wide variety of destinations, the decision to re-brand the ship as Ocean Princess to reflect her global itineraries is a timely one. 

Even Princess recognizes how popular their past drydock photo-journals on Golden, Dawn, Sea and Coral Princess have been.  Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises Executive Vice President, said “This latest journal will give cruise fans yet another insiders’ peek behind the scenes, with the added interest in seeing the name change.”
