Yes, you are correct. Princess acquired several ships in the Sitmar deal. I'm not sure whether this list is complete or not, but...

>> MV Fairwind became MV Fair Princess,

>> MV Fairsea became (the original) MV Sea Princess, and

>> TSS Fairsky became TSS Sky Princess and operated for sister line P&O Cruises - Australia as TSS Pacific Sky

And three ships under construction at the time of Princess's aquisition of Sitmar became MV Star Princess, MV Regal Princess, and the original MV Crown Princess.
