This prince of a guy from “The Little Mermaid” enjoys putting his mariner experience to good use and working on ships in his fleet. Even though Eric is a real prince, he acts like your average Joe. When he has an accident at sea and is saved from drowning by a mysterious mermaid, he starts acting like a typical Disney princess: determined to find and marry his one true love. Even though he was only semiconscious during the rescue, he remembers her singing to him with a beautiful voice.
