Arriving in the spring of 2013, the 3,600-passenger liner is the first of two new-generation ships being built. Features include an over-water SeaWalk and a SeaView bar – a top-deck glass-bottomed enclosed walkway on one side and bar on the other, each extending more than 28ft beyond the edge. On her top decks Royal Princess will also feature a new adults-only pool surrounded by seven private cabanas that appear to be floating on the water.
Two additional pools will flank a tropical island that will offer pool seating by day. By night they will be transformed into an outdoor dance club, complete with a water and light show. Princess boss Alan Buckelew said: "We are taking the best features of our newest vessels and taking them to the next level."
