Charleston Harbor Tours & Events has announced the launch of a new vessel: the Charleston Princess. The new vessel, which will take the place of the Carolina Queen, will be available for booking for private events such as weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners and corporate events as of October 2019.
The 100-foot-long Charleston Princess has three decks for entertaining and a capacity of up to 300 passengers. The lower deck is enclosed and climate-controlled, while the mid-deck is partially enclosed and open on the stern, with a glass solarium. The top deck is open. The vessel also has two bars and a premium sound system. A successor to the Carolina Queen, the new vessel provides upgraded comfort, viewing areas and hosting capabilities, Charleston Harbor Tours & Events said.
Charleston Harbor Tours & Events operates year-round, and, in addition to private event bookings it offers up to five sightseeing tours a day, depending on the time of year. The company also offers Combo Tours that pair a Charleston Harbor Tour with a variety of other sightseeing tours that show off in-depth looks at downtown Charleston and several iconic Charleston landmarks.
The Charleston Princess will also host special events such as the "Blues & BBQ Cruise," "Jam on the Water Concert Cruises," "Jazz Brunch," "Harborita-Ville," and other events throughout the year.
