Ocean Princess, formerly R Four, and Tahitian Princess, is an R-class cruise ship owned by Princess Cruises. She mainly sails around the French Polynesian islands, Society Islands, Cook Islands, Marquesas Islands, and often sails to Hawaii. She also spends northern hemisphere summers in Alaska. Her sister ship is the Pacific Princess.

In November 2009 the Tahitian Princess was renamed Ocean Princess to "reflect a more global theme."

History

The vessel entered operation in 1999 under the flag of Renaissance Cruises. The ship was not owned by the company; instead she was owned by a group of French investors. When Renaissance declared bankruptcy in 2001, the ship was seized by creditors, along with the other seven vessels in the fleet.

In 2002, Princess Cruises secured a two year lease for R Four and her sister ship R Three (now Pacific Princess). The vessel entered operation at the end of 2002, and was renamed Tahitian Princess. At the end of the lease, Princess Cruises purchased both vessels.
