Some additional new features found aboard are

  • An over-water SeaWalk with views 128 feet straight down
  • A top-deck glass-bottomed enclosed walkway on the ship’s starboard side extending more than 28ft beyond the edge of the vessel
  • A similarly-unique cantilevered SeaView bar, featuring cocktails with unbeatable vistas
  • An even larger and expanded atrium with additional entertainment and casual dining options
  • Princess’s largest top deck pool ever with a water and light show
  • Balconies on all outside staterooms
  • Also on her top decks, Royal Princess features a new adults-only pool surrounded by seven plush private cabanas that appear to be floating on the water, two additional pools, a dazzling water and light show, an expanded version of Princess’s signature adults-only haven, The Sanctuary, and the popular poolside theater, Movies Under the Stars.

    Her sister. Regal Princess, joins the fleet in June 2014.
