Just watched a video on Princess new ship to be launched in May 2013.It is going to have an adult only pool with private cabanas and to deep water pools mid ship divided by an island with palm trees.It is also going to have the first ever sky walk thats 120 feet above the water with glass floors. On the other side of the ship will be a lounge that will be 120 feet above the water with glass floors. They kind of looked those tubes hampsters run thru. And there biggest screen as of yet for their movies under the stars.They said they will be realeasing more info later.She looked pretty nice pretty streamlined. oh almost forgot they will be having a light and water show in the 2 pools.

Yup... there's an article about the ship up on our Home Page. She looks pretty good so far.

Even though she'll be larger, I'm betting for an improvement over the Grand Class ships.

Where did Cruise Mates get the info that the adult pool with the cabanas is "In" the Sanctuary?

We got emails from Princess on Tuesday with a link to the video. Check the Web site out. May 2013 is the first cruise..

Sad to see the smaller Royal go away, it is a great ship without all the lines that the larger ships have, Bigger is not always better......

I'm not asking about the video, I was the one that posted the info here in the first place. I was asking about the Sanctuary. No where else, including Princess Press Release is it saying that the adult pool is "IN" the Sanctuary the way that Cruisemates is reporting it. I think that little detail is wrong. It's "Near", not "IN"

No it didn't. You have to listen carefully at that point as she makes three statements together...she's talking about the top deck she says there adults only Sanctuary has been expanded and will be more exclusive, there's a pause and she talks about an adults only pool and then the other two pools.

There's a bar back there, there has never been a bar in the Sanctuary. Princess press release talks about them seperately, other news sites are saying a new adult pool...Near the sanctuary. I don't think the article Cruisemates wrote is correct.

i watched and listened to the video and i would interpret it to mean that the cabana's are in the adult-only sanctuary pool area. She sounds like a beautiful ship, have mixed feelings about calling her the Royal Princess when i have such wonderful memories of the original lady that was the Royal Princess

This article sheds a bit of light. They seem separate to me and the cabanas will be available to rent as I thought. I'm sure the Sanctuary users will use that pool but it's not for their exclusive use.

Next Princess Cruises ship to have glass-bottomed 'SeaWalk' - USATODAY.com

yes you are right, that article definately clears things up, the cabana's are going to be in a new adults only pool area, separate from the Sanctuary

It's been confirmed by Princess, the adult pool is not part of the Sanctuary and is free ton use. There will be a charge for the Cabanas
