Default Princess Cancels Dual Christening in Santorini

The following information is from Modern Agent 4/18/07

Princess Cruises has cancelled plans to christen two ships May 12 in Santorini out of respect following the April 6 sinking of Louis Cruise Lines' Sea Diamond. The Emerald Princess will now be christened in Athens on May 13, and the new date and location for the Royal Princess festivities will be announced shortly. "Given the great shock and sadness this incident has caused, and out of the respect for those affected, we have decided that it would not be appropriate to continue with the celebrations we had planned in Santorini," said Alan Buckelew, president of Princess Cruises. "Our thoughts are with all those affected, especially the family of the two missing French passengers."

Buckelew said Princess will continue with the original plans to reunite a pair of TV mothers and daughters for the christening of Emerald Princess. Florence Henderson, best known as Carol Brady on "The Brady Bunch," and Marion Ross, aka Marion Cunningham of "Happy Days" fame and their TV daughters, Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady) and Erin Moran (Joanie Cunningham) will all be aboard Emerald Princess in Athens to officially welcome her into the Princess fleet.

Interesting. Funny you mention Florence, she was just in the audience this past week for Dancing with the Stars. She's a big fan of the show apparently.
