Ocean Princess, Princess Cruises
- Entertainment & Activities
Editor's note: Ocean Princess was sold to Oceania Cruises and now sails under the name Sirena.
Along with sister ship, the Pacific Princess, the Ocean Princess is one of two R Class cruise ships from Princess Cruises. These smaller ships, with a more intimate cruise experience and longer duration cruises, generally attract a mature clientele. Retirees and empty nesters will enjoy longer cruises traveling to destinations throughout Europe and the Mediterranean including Italy, Greece, Turkey, Romania and the United Kingdom.
Built in 1999, this ship was refurbished and upgraded in October, 2012. In 2013 Princess Cruises won a Cruise Critic Editor’s Choice Award for the Best Cruise for Couples.
