PRINCESS Cruises has introduced live broadcasts over the Internet from the bridge of another seven of its ships.
The move follows the success of a first BridgeCam installed on Grand Princess earlier this year, which attracted more than 77,000 hits a day on Princess’ Web site, with browsers spending an average of 15mins watching the view from the ship’s bridge.
The shot will be updated every 60 seconds, 24hrs a day, as Grand Princess sails in the Mediterranean this summer.
It allows people with relatives and friends cruising on the ship to watch their sailing progress.
Among the other ships which now feature BridgeCams are Sun Princess, Dawn Princess, Sea Princess, Crown Princess, Regal Princess and Sky Princess. All are spending this summer cruising in Alaska.
Royal Princess, which is sailing in the Baltic and Norwegian Fjords, has also had the equipment fitted.
The Princess Web site has 1,000 pages, including 360-degree photos allowing users to tour the cabins and other facilities on the ships. The address is www.princess.com
n Princess’ sister company in the UK has awarded a travel agent a free cruise on its forthcoming new ship Aurora.
Lis Ansell of Lunn Poly in Burgess Hill, Sussex, won a competition to cruise from Southampton to France and Spain. Aurora is due to join the P&O fleet in April 2000.
