Princess Cruises has named the madrina for its next Medallion ship Discovery Princess, launching later this month (March).
The line’s hotel general manager Terri Cybuliak will assume the role for the 3,660-passenger ship.
Cybuliak first joined Princess in 1998 as a junior assistant purser on the original Crown Princess.
As hotel general manager, Cybuliak helped launch Majestic Princess in China and was heavily engaged in the planning of that ship. With Sky Princess, she became the first female hotel general manager at Princess to launch a new-build from a shipyard.
Princess Cruises president John Padgett said: “Terri embodies the Princess Cruises spirit and culture of being a team player, forging strong relationships, learning from her colleagues and mentoring her team to perform at their highest level.
“With gratitude, we proudly honour Terri as the madrina of our new Discovery Princess, recognising all of her incredible contributions over her 24-year career with Princess.”
Cybuliak added: “I am honoured to be the madrina of Discovery Princess. This is a culmination of not only my achievements but also those who have supported me and influenced the leader I’ve become.
“Princess has afforded me the opportunity to travel the world and I am forever grateful for these experiences.”
Discovery Princess prepares for maiden cruise
Discovery Princess shares many of the same aspects as its sister ships – Enchanted Princess, Sky Princess, Majestic Princess, Regal Princess and Royal Princess.
On board, guests will be able to experience 270-degree views from the balconies in the Sky Suites and see new West End-style production shows in the Princess Theatre.
The ship is currently making its way to the Port of Los Angeles to sail on a series of Mexican Riviera and California Coast voyages from 27 March – 24 April 2022.
It will then head up the Pacific coast to begin a season of seven-night Alaska cruises from Seattle.
