Default Are You Ready for Royal Princess?

Are You Ready for Royal Princess?
by Paul Motter

Royal Princess takes the cruise line to a new level in cruise ship innovations and scale.


The new atrium is the centerpiece
of Royal Princess

I tend to see the 2000-decade in cruising as analogous to the 1960s in rock albums where we started with the mop tops on Ed Sullivan but ended with the most iconic rock albums in history.

Cruising in the 2000-decade went through a similar transformation. We started with Voyager of the Seas which defined the early 2000s as the first true mega-ship with an inside open promenade and we ended with the most innovative and luxurious cruise ships ever built; Celebrity Solstice, Holland America Eurodam, MSC Fantasia, Oasis of the Seas, Norwegian Epic, Silver Whisper and more.

Now, Carnival and Princess each took a slightly different approach to that decade. Princess started with Grand Princess at 110,000-tons and ended the decade with Ruby Princess at 113,000-tons. While these Princess ships were already state-of-the-art and gave thousands of excellent cruises, the line just didn't evolve from a design standpoint as much as other lines. But that is about to change.
