Sports Legends join Princess

If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook you will know that Emma and Cathy are currently onboard Enchanted Princess as guests of Princess Cruises. We are excited to tell you about that very soon but first we just wanted to let you know about a special event planned for the ship in August…

Princess Cruises have arranged a special line-up of sport legends for a new sports-themed cruise onboard in August. Enchanted Princess is the newest of the four Princess ships homeporting in Southampton this year so this is a great opportunity to get to know her.

The ‘Sports Stars’ cruise will take place on a seven-night Spain and France voyage departing August 5, 2022. It will be hosted by Olympian Gail Emms MBE, who will run a series of Q&A sessions with sport names spanning rugby, cricket and the Olympics.

The impressive achievements of the guest speakers include:

  • Martin Johnson CBE – Captain of Leicester, England and British Lions in a career spanning 16 seasons, Martin Johnson is best known for captaining England to victory in the 2003 Rugby World Cup and is regarded as one of the greatest players to have played the game.

  • Gail Emms MBE – An icon of British sporting success, with a string of gold, silver and bronze medals achieved in a vast array of international competitions and Olympic Games, Gail Emms won a silver medal at the Athens Olympic Games with mixed badminton doubles partner Nathan Robertson as a former world champion.
