Lucky Princess Cruiser Wins a $95,000 Princess-Branded Porsche

Kavita Torvi of Cary, NC is the winner of Princess Cruises’ Porsche giveaway, which attracted more than 850,000 entries across North America.

On December 19, 2022, Princess Cruises officially announced the winner of its Porsche giveaway, offered in conjunction with the Porsche Club of America (PCA).

The lucky winner, Kavita Torvi of Cary, North Carolina, had purchased a $5 accessory ahead of an upcoming Princess cruise, earning her an entry in the drawing.

Torvi had made the $5 purchase on a personalized Ocean Medallion, featuring the word “LOVE” to celebrate her son’s 18th birthday.

That small transaction led to Torvi winning the one-of-a-kind, $95,000 Princess-branded all-electric Porsche Taycan. The high-performance vehicle is emblazoned with Princess’ iconic seawitch logo and includes a host of high-tech features.

“We love helping guests like Kavita celebrate special occasions on board, and this Princess-branded Porsche is quite possibly the biggest surprise ever,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises.

The Princess Porsche has traveled the United States and has been featured at five signature PCA events. The Taycan is adorned with event-specific badges, making it an even more unique award.

“When Princess called me to tell me I had won a $95,000 custom Princess-inspired Porsche I thought they were joking—I almost hung up on them. To be honest, I’m still in shock!” said Torvi.

Torvi, along with her husband and two teenage sons, boarded the Regal Princess this weekend for a previously booked cruise. But before boarding, she and her family were the guests of honor at a dockside reception at Port Everglades where Padgett presented her with the keys and title to her dream car.

“We love sailing on Princess and this Porsche is a life-changing reminder of the amazing times we’ve had on board. Many thanks to Princess and the Porsche Club of America for providing my family with a lifetime of memories!” Torvi enthused.
