Princess Cruises to unveil Downton Abbey exhibits on UK-based ships

Princess Cruises to unveil Downton Abbey exhibits on UK-based ships
Princess Cruises announced that it will include Downton Abbey exhibits on two of its UK-based ships from next month.

Both the 3,100-guest Emerald Princess and Caribbean Princess will showcase costumes and jewellery worn by several characters from the hit television drama. At least once per cruise the displays will be made available for guests to view on the Princess Theatre stage.
As part of the exhibits an exclusive ‘making of Downton Abbey’ film will be played and afternoon tea served afterwards.
Episodes of the show will be available to watch on guests’ stateroom televisions.
The exhibit will be on Emerald Princess from May 20 to September 5 when she sets sail from Southampton to destinations across Europe, including the Mediterranean and Scandinavia. Caribbean Princess’ exhibit will be available from May 18 to September 3 during her season sailing around the British Isles.
Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises’ vice president UK and Europe, said, ‘Many of our guests are Downton Abbey fans so we wanted to offer them something special to enjoy during their time onboard with us. Both exhibits include collections that are instantly recognisable and helped make the show so popular.’
