This week, I am reporting from Princess Cruises’ brand new Emerald Princess. Our 12-day Greek Isles and Mediterranean voyage takes us from Rome to Venice.
Along the way, we’ll take part on a special naming ceremony for the ship: Sunday, May 13, in Athens.
Television icons Florence Henderson, best known as “Carol Brady” on The Brady Bunch, and Marion Ross, aka “Marion Cunningham” of Happy Days fame and their TV daughters, Susan Olsen (“Cindy Brady”) and Erin Moran (“Joanie Cunningham”) will all be aboard Emerald Princess to officially welcome her into the Princess fleet.
Captain Stubing (Gavin MacLeod) is on board, and I’ll have an inteview with him later in the voyage.
The 3.070-passenger Emerald Princess is nearly identical to the Crown Princess, launched last year, but with a few new twists. I’ll be reporting on those twists as the week progresses, so bookmark this page and return often.
