Crown Princess

The Crown Princess called at the Port of Charlottetown this morning, disgorging more than 3,000 iPad-picture-taking, Tilly-hat-wearing day visitors into the streets and motor coaches of Charlottetown.

No matter what evil you might think of cruise ship tourism, the ship is a truly impressive marvel of marine engineering.

And even though it looks huge, it’s only 52nd on the list of the largest cruise ships in the world.

Crown Princess fun fact: the ships “godmother” is Martha Stewart, having christened it in 2006, only a year after being released from prison.
