Default Caribbean Princess "CB"

Ok, so I'm new to Princess. I have seen on a number of occasions that this ship is referred to as the "CB". What does that stand for?

Hi Jim, the CB is Princess' internal ship reference code, you will see it used on things like the webcam links & some cruise searches.
Is is not CP as you might expect as Sea Princess has that one, Sea Princess is not SP because Sun Princess already had that one.
I believe the current full list is ...


AP = grAnd Princess
CB = CariBbean Princess
CO = COral Princess
CP = sea Princess
DP = DAwn Princess
DI = DIamond Princess
EP = Emerald Princess
IP = Island Princess
KP = crown Princess
NP = goldeN Princess
PA = PAcific Princess
RP = Royal Princess
SA = SApphire Princess
SP = Sun Princess
TA = TAhitian Princess
TP = sTar Princess

hope this helps,

Alan

Caribbean Princess = CB

That is what Princess has designated as her "short name".

So what is the code for Crown Princess?

I think they use CB so much because it takes too much time to type out the whole word...Caribbean! :o As far as the Crown goes, they usually just refer to her as the "Crown" but I have seen it also referred to as KP. I think the K has to do with "King" like a King wears a Crown...but not sure.

Default Thanks

Yes, in everything I've been reading about cruises, I have noticed it referred to as just the Crown. Reading this thread, however, got me wondering if the Crown did have one!
Thanks again

Yep, ninth in the list KP = Crown - where is the ship being built? maybe the local spelling is Krone or such?

Nope, missed it in the list. I swear I read the list 3 times before I asked!
My mistake...

So, I'm not crazy and loosing my mind! My child thinks so, but glad to know it isn't just me. I've not posted much, being a 'virgin cruiser' and all, just taking it all in like a sponge, but I've thought most people were pretty nice tog et along with.
I'm still the new kid, trying to make friends!
