Royal Princess inaugural cruise countdown, a month to go

Princess Cruises Royal Princess is set for her inaugural cruise on June 16, 2013, which means the one-month countdown has already begun. There’s still a chance to get a last-minute cruise onboard Royal Princess, and from what we have seen it’s something you will not want to miss out on.

She will start her season in Europe, with the very first Royal Princess cruise set for on June 16 and heading off to warmer waters. If you have already booked and just need to refresh yourself on the main features of this new vessel, then you can do so below.

She weighs in at 141,000-tons, which is the biggest in the Princess Cruises fleet, although another is already in construction. The Duchess of Cambridge will name her, and once onboard you will get a true sense of her size, as she is 20 percent larger than other ships in the fleet.

There is a selection of fresh new touches to the Royal Princess, such as the SeaWalk, and her beautiful Atrium. However, what appeals to us is the 24-hour pastry shop.

A number of changes have been made to the cabins when compared to her sister ships, such as 80 percent of them being balconies and inside cabins being made a little larger to make your stay more comfortable.
