Captain Nick Nash has been recently promoted to the rank of commodore for Princess Cruises. He is a veteran in the cruise industry and has been associated with the global fleet for 31 years. He also becomes the seventh commodore in the history of the line, an honour that is bestowed upon the most senior captain of a fleet of ships, and the position represents the highest rank attainable to a Princess Cruises mariner.
Commodore Nash becomes the senior master of the fleet, and will now be representing the interests of all ships and its captains. He also was recently recognised at the delivery of Enchanted Princess as captain of the newest vessel and has the privilege of navigating the ship out of the Fincantieri shipyard for the very first time.
It was back in 1989 that Commodore Nash first joined the company and was promoted to Staff Captain in 1997. He went on to become the Captain in 2002 and has been at the helm of many Princess vessels, most recently Royal Princess. Most recently, Nash served as President of the Nautical Institute and after two years now serves on the council. He was awarded the United Kingdom’s Merchant Navy Medal for meritorious service in 2018.
Jan Swartz, President, Princess Cruises said in a statement that Captain Nick Nash the next commodore of the global fleet is an honour and a testament to his dedication as a master seafarer. She shared that with his successful tenure and utmost focus on the high priority of the safety and security of all guests and crew, Nash will continue to deliver the cruise experience guests cherish when the cruise line return to service.
