Regal Princess, arrived in Venice today to welcome guests on the maiden voyage. The newest cruise ship to join the Princess fleet is the sister ship of Royal Princess. The seven-day inaugural cruise includes stops in Corfu, Mykonos and an overnight call in Istanbul. Will return to Venice next week.
“We’re absolutely delighted to welcome another addition to the Princess family with Regal Princess,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president. “This new ship now expands our fleet to 18 vessels that visit worldwide destinations, and guests traveling aboard Regal Princess will truly have a special experience while enjoying her exciting features including the showpiece atrium, exceptional dining, relaxing Lotus Spa and innovative features like the over-water SeaWalk.”
Throughout the summer, the new ship will sail on Princess’ signature Grand Mediterranean cruises, with two itinerary choices and will debut in North America in November. After the repositioning cruise, will begin the season of Eastern Caribbean cruises from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Some of the features of the new Regal Princess are The SeaWalk, a top-deck glass-bottomed enclosed walkway on the ship’s starboard side extending more than 28 feet beyond the edge of the vessel; the Atrium, the social hub of the ship with light meals, beverages, entertainment, shopping and guest services and the Chef’s Table Lumiere, in which guests will be magically surrounded by a curtain of light as they savor the chef’s special menu.
These are features that also has the Royal Princess, but there are two new features of Regal Princess include an additional aft pool and access to the exterior promenade on deck 7, enabling passengers to walk the length of the ship.
