Default Nameing of the New Royal Princess.

I jusst viewed the video of the ceremony to name the new Royal Princess. It was outstanding.

Just thinking we will be onboard her coming this October bringing her to our country to cruise in the Caribbean. Can't wait.

Default Naming of the New Royal Princess

Hi, Ray. I saw a little bit of the ceremony on television. Wish I could sail on her, too!

Hi Ray we were fortunate enough to take a look around her last weekend, we were on for almost 5 hours (okay 2 or which were in the MDR) and we feel that we barely saw half of her.

The theater stage had a sort of "screen saver" running in the background, came out as amazing 3D graphic even without any special glasses - very impressive, hopefully they will use it in the shows.

I will be interested to hear what others think of the Lotus Spa decor & rooms, definitely not to our taste, way to dark, but each to their own.

Loved the idea of the tiered sunbed spaces behind the pool, looks like a great way of reducing disturbance, noise and wind - again we didn't sail, so will look to you for actual experiences.

The attrium really was a huge wow, and although we liked the idea of the 'TV studio', we did think that the seats were quite narrow & uncomfortable. Will be good to see how the 'production' work goes on there.

Food really good in the MDR, and great in the huge self-service area, but we only saw a couple of drinks stations - again as I said we barely scratched the surface, so I am sure there are plenty.

Looks to us as if anyone sailing on her are in for a real treat, please report back & make us all jealous.

Alan & Katrina

For anyone interested, I have uploaded a dozen or so pics from the lookaround.

Great pics, I love the décor of the princess ships, may-be because I am partial to blue :-)
