The 2013-built Royal Princess cruise ship is the 1st Royal-class vessel in the Princess Cruises fleet, together with the fleet mates Regal Princess (2014), Majestic Princess (2017), Sky Princess (2019), Enchanted Princess (2021) and Discovery Princess (2022). One more vessel of the same class will be constructed for Princess, with a scheduled launch in 2022. From the same class is also the P&O UK ship Britannia (2015).

The vessel (IMO number 9584712) is currently Bermuda-flagged (MMSI 310661000) and registered in Hamilton.

The glass-bottomed SeaWalk offers stunning sea and port views from 128 ft / 39 m above waterline.

An interesting fact is that one of the newest ships of Princess Cruises features in a BBC program - the upcoming ‘Sea Cities’ series. The 3-part documentary based in Southampton UK visits several ports across the United Kingdom to view their events and activities, as well as meet seafarers and staff. Princess Cruises’ Royal Princess appears in ‘Sea Cities: Maritime Liverpool’ episode, highlighting what goes on behind the scenes of the 19-deck cruise vessel during a visit to the city. The 60-minute episode airs on BBC2 on February 18, 2016.

Royal Princess was christened in 2013 by HRH, The Duchess of Cambridge. The ship called in Liverpool 7 times in 2015 on round Britain cruises.

Decks and Cabins

Royal Princess staterooms (1780 total, in 38 categories) include 350 Suites, 1088 Balcony and 342 Inside cabins, in 38 categories. The ship has no Oceanview cabins. Most outside accommodations (1438) have private step-out balconies. The ship also has 36 wheelchair-accessible cabins. The largest are the Balcony Suites (470 ft2 / 44 m2 plus 210 ft2 / 20 m2 terrace).

The boat has 18 decks, of which 15 are passenger-accessible and 8 with cabins.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

For the MDR (main dining room) experience, Royal offers "anytime" and "traditional" evening dining in 3 different restaurant venues. The Allegro offers set-tablemates and set-seating options, while Concerto and Symphony are open seating (between 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.). All of the MDRs offer the same menu, with the most special items occurring on formal nights. All the three main dining rooms offer heart-healthy,

Lotus Spa and vegetarian menu items for passengers with dietary restrictions. Food and service are generally excellent at all meals. One of the greatest improvements on Royal Princess is the Horizon Court. The buffet area offers double the number of seats found on Emerald Princess, Ruby Princess and Crown Princess; Royal provides space for 350 outdoors and 900 indoors and also offers a bigger variety of table styles, including 2-tops and bistro-style "counter-height" dining tables.

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

Royal Princess cruise ship, that is some 20 % larger than Princess' next biggest vessels, introduces more of an evolution than a revolution for the line. The sole big move forward by the cruise liner, that is being named Royal Princess in tribute to Princess' 1st purpose-built ship, is the innovative SkyWalk, which is a cantilevered, glass-enclosed walkway which extends 28 feet beyond the edge of the vessel and 128 feet over the water. On the opposite side of the deck, the similarly designed 20-seat Seaview bar welcomes those who want to mix vistas with their vodka.

Princess Cruises new ship design (Theater Lounge)

The bulk of performance action takes place in Royal's Princess Theater, situated on decks 6 and 7. The theatre features palladium-style seating; it's deep, and if you don't arrive early, you might find yourself in the back, which is far from the stage. However, there aren't any obstacles or bad sightlines. The entertainment is excellent and varied, with a beat that is quite innovative. Passengers are entertained while sailing with top-rated production shows performed live in Princess Theater: The Secret Silk (via a partnership with award-winning composer Stephen Schwartz) and Encore (inspired by “Bravo!”, the line’s top-rated show, and accompanied by onstage orchestra). In addition to the production shows, the Princess theatre hosts other acts including vocalists and instrumentalists.

Itineraries

Royal Princess itinerary program was initially based on Mediterranean and Caribbean voyages (alternating seasonally) with departures from homeports Fort Lauderdale FL USA,Civitavecchia-Rome, Venice, Barcelona.

In 2019-2020, the ship operated Mexican Riviera roundtrips from Long Beach-Los Angeles CA USA. The new itinerary program included 27x voyages (5-days and 7-days long) visiting Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. All 5-day "Cabo San Lucas Getaway" itineraries were with an overnight in Cabo.

Due to the Coronavirus crisis, the Royal Princess ship was paused for 2+ years (March 2020 thru April 2022). Operations were scheduled to restart on April 8, 2022, with homeporting in Vancouver BC Canada and voyages to Alaska and California. The Alaskan deployment replaced the previously planned Australia-New Zealand 2021-22 winter program (based on homeporting in Sydney NSW) which was rescheduled for winter 2022-23.

Fun facts: It takes 3 million man-hours to build a Royal-class liner. 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 mi (4000 km) which is enough to link NYC with LA.
