Meet Stanley

Stanley Captain

A curious young bear wandered aboard a Princess ship in Alaska. As he explored the ship he accidentally stepped in fresh paint and found a little “princess” on his paw. The ship began to pull away from shore and his eyes welled up with tears as he saw his home disappearing into the distance. At that moment a small child gave him a big, warm hug and asked if they could travel the world together. The crew named the bear Stanley in recognition of Princess Cruises’ founder Stanley B. McDonald.
