During sea trials, the cruise ship’s propulsion, speed, maneuverability, stabilizers, and safety features (fire suppression & life saving equipment) are all tested to make sure the ship is safe and seaworthy.
We're excited to share that #EnchantedPrincess has successfully completed her sea trials! 🎉 She set out to sea in Italy and went through a series of test maneuvers. Now back in the Fincantieri shipyard for further finishing, we eagerly await her debut. #PrincessCruises pic.twitter.com/gPL43phwxuOur free cruise newsletter offers the latest cruise news and deals: Sign Up
