Princess Cruises new ship design (Theater Lounge)

Theatre lounge doesn't offer tables or drink holders, so if you order one preshow or come with a drink, you'll have to hold it. The entertainment program is excellent and varied, with a beat that is quite innovative.

Enchanted Princess wiki

In April 2016, Princess Cruises (via Carnival Corporation) signed a shipbuilding order for 2 new vessels, scheduled for deliveries in 2019 (Sky) and 2020 (Enchanted). These are 4th and 5th Royal-class liners (same-designed as Royal,Regal and Majestic) constructed at Monfalcone Shipyard as part of a previous agreement between Carnival Corporation (shipowner) and Fincantieri (shipbuilder). At that time, Carnival Corp had a total of 16 shipbuilding orders, with scheduled deliveries between 2016-2020. All these new vessels are fleet's largest and feature Movies Under the Stars (outdoor theatre), Piazza Atrium, 80% balconied staterooms, new dining venues.

At the end of January 2017, Carnival Corporation announced 2 more shipbuilding orders. The new liners were ordered for the fleets of Princess (Royal-class) and Holland America Line (Pinnacle-class). Carnival signed an MoA (memorandum of agreement) with Fincantieri to construct both vessels, with scheduled deliveries in 2021 (for HAL, at Marghera yard) and 2022 (for Princess, at Monfalcone yard). By the time when both contracts were finalized (February 2017), Carnival Corporation had a total of 19 new ships scheduled for delivery between 2017 and 2022.

Fun facts: It takes 3 million man-hours to build a Royal-class cruise ship. For its construction are used 37,000 tons of steel. For instance, about 12,000 tons of steel were used for constructing the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. The paint used for the vessel is 95,000 gallons (360,000 L), which is two times more than the quantity consumed for Golden Gate Bridge (re-painted annually). The electrical cables wiring the whole vessel are long 2484 ml (4000 km) which is enough to link NYC with LA.

Vessel's keel-laying ceremony was held on February 14, 2019. On the same day was launched (floated-out from drydock) the sistership Sky Princess (planned inauguration in October 2019) and also was held the steel-cutting ceremony for the 6th (final) Royal-Class liner (yet to be named, scheduled inauguration in 2022). During the keel-laying, the traditional coin ceremony was "modernized". To bring good luck, instead of a metal coin, into the hull was welded an OceanMedallion device.

The liner Enchanted Princess will be named in Port Southampton (England UK). Bookings were opened on November 8, 2018.
