Princess Cruises Reunites Television’s Favorite Mothers and Daughters

Florence Henderson (‘Mrs. Brady’) and Marion Ross (‘Mrs. Cunningham’) Launch Contest for Deserving Mother and Daughter to Join Them at Historic Dual Naming Ceremony in Santorini, Greece

In celebration of the historic dual naming of its two newest ships, Emerald Princess and Royal Princess — which takes place over Mother’s Day weekend in Santorini, Greece — Princess Cruises will reunite a pair of television’s favorite mothers and daughters to christen its pair of vessels. Television icons Florence Henderson, best known as “Carol Brady” on The Brady Bunch, and Marion Ross, aka “Marion Cunningham” of Happy Days fame will christen the larger Emerald Princess, while their TV daughters, Susan Olsen (“Cindy Brady”) and Erin Moran (“Joanie Cunningham”) will christen the more intimate Royal Princess.

In addition, these stars united today to announce a contest for a real mother and daughter duo to join them in Greece for the christening festivities. Contestants may enter by logging onto for a chance to win “The Ultimate Mother and Daughter Mediterranean Escape.” The winners will sail on the May 5-17 Greek Isles/Mediterranean Emerald Princess sailing, the inaugural celebration cruise during which the ships will be simultaneously named on May 12. The winning mother and daughter will be announced on April 12.
