Enchanted Princess' Monday call (May 2) at Falmouth (England UK) was unscheduled but added to the Copenhagen (Denmark)-Southampton (England UK) voyage after her stop off at the Isle of Portland (Weymouth, Dorset England) was cancelled.

Built in Italy at a cost of EUR 650 million, Enchanted Princess is one of the newest liners in the Princess Cruises fleet, having her maiden voyage in November 2021.

At 330 metres in length, she is the largest cruise ship to visit Falmouth, with a capacity to bring a total of 3660 passengers to the port town.

Emerging out of the morning mist, Enchanted Princess could be seen off Pendennis Point just after 6:00 a.m. As soon as she dropped anchor, passengers could be seen boarding smaller boats to be tendered to County Wharf.
