Portland Port welcomed the 3,080-passenger Princess Cruises cruise ship Crown Princess at the end of April.

This was another inaugural call by both cruise line and vessel.

Princess Cruises is a major US cruise line owned by the Carnival Corporation, one of the largest holiday companies in the world, and one of the best known names in cruising.

Princess Cruises is the fastest growing international premium luxury cruise line and tour company, operating a fleet of 17 modern cruise ships, carrying two million guests each year to 380 destinations.

Crown Princess is not the only ship making her inaugural call at Portland. Sea Princess and Pacific Princess will both be making their inaugural calls later in the season, and Crown Princess returns on 24 September.
