Facebook Section Enables Fans to Meet Fellow Passengers on Their Voyage
SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (July 7, 2011) — Princess Cruises has debuted a new Princess Roll CallTM section on its Facebook page enabling passengers on each sailing to connect with each other before and after their cruise. This special feature is designed to give Facebook users a way to ?meet’ fellow passengers, ask each other for advice, organize get-togethers and share the excitement leading up to a cruise and the memories afterward.
“Cruising has always been a very social experience, and passengers often like to embrace the community nature of a cruise even before they set sail,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises executive vice president. “This Roll Call section has been widely requested, and makes great use of the functionality of Facebook to give passengers a place to ?meet’ each other on a platform they already use. They can check in with their fellow cruisers to ask questions and make plans in the same place they use to keep up with family and friends.”
The Princess Cruises Roll Call is organized by ship and date, making it easy to find a specific sailing. Upcoming Princess sailings through December 2011 are currently available in the system, and sailings through spring 2013 will be added shortly. Once passengers indicate that they are joining that voyage, they can leave comments or ask questions of fellow cruisers.
Each sailing’s page will continue to be available after the voyage, so passengers can keep in touch and share stories and photos once they return home.
Passengers will be able to easily find their voyage’s Roll Call page with direct links provided in their booking confirmation, in pre-cruise emails and in their Cruise Personalizer.
