ARTEMIS: The Original Royal Princess


ARTEMIS: The Original Royal Princess

A. SASSOLI-WALKER & S. POOLE    Book Number: 74033    Product format: Paperback

Drawing on the words of both passengers and crew, this lovely book celebrates the innovation in cruise ship design that Artemis -The Royal Princess represented, and highlights her career with both Princess and P&O Cruises. When she was named by the then Princess of Wales in 1984, she was the most advanced, purpose-built luxury cruise ship ever conceived and constructed. Built at the beginning of the modern commercial age of cruising, she was the trend-setter of the cruise ship world. She also still holds a number of records such as: the first contemporary cruise ship to have all outside cabins and the first British passenger ship to be commanded by a female captain. During her years of service, she has taken passengers all over the globe in luxury and style and, it is hoped, has many more years of cruising ahead of her. At 45,000 tons the Royal Princess is small in comparison with the super-liners of today, but, when she was launched, she was one of the largest cruise ships afloat. Now she has been sold to a German company and is to be renamed Artania - a new chapter in the life of this beautiful ship, but her loyal fans will not forget her. 120 pages 25cm x 23cm absolutely packed with colour photos and appendices giving statistics.
