Royal Princess - a new generation ship
There are only two brand new ships coming to the U.S. Market this year, and both are already generating a lot of buzz with cruisers; Norwegian Breakaway (Norwegian Cruise Lines) and Royal Princess (Princess Cruise Line). The first will reach New York City in April (2013) but the Royal Princess, although it will begin service in June of 2013, will not reach the shores of the United States until October.
The inaugural season of Royal Princess, the largest Princess cruise ship yet to come into service, will be begin in Southampton, the historic British port, with two special cruises of just two nights. These cruises will precede the inaugural ceremonies scheduled for June 16. These two two-night cruises will go on sale to the public on January 29.
