The SeaWalk – The ship’s most distinguishing design element is an over-water 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. From here passengers can enjoy dramatic views, including to the sea 128 feet below.
Dramatic Atrium – The social hub of the ship, the soaring atrium offers a vibrant collection of always-changing quick bites and light meals, beverages, entertainment, shopping and guest services. New features such as Bellini’s Italian cocktail bar, Ocean Terrace seafood bar, and a gelateria add to the Piazza’s lively atmosphere.
Chef’s Table Lumiere – Princess is now setting a new standard for the chef’s table experience with the debut of the Chef’s Table Lumiere in which passengers will be magically surrounded by a curtain of light – providing a soft wall of privacy that envelopes diners as they savor the chef’s special menu.
Water and Music Shows – The ship’s central pool area features daily and nightly performances of four separate themed sequences comprised of dancing fountains, special music and live performers. The Movies Under the Stars screen is also incorporated as an additional show element.
Princess Live! – The ship’s new television studio, a first for Princess, features programming throughout the day from 8 am until midnight. Passengers can enjoy live talk shows, demonstrations and performers here, including the daily Wake Show.
Horizon Court Buffet – One of Princess’ most popular casual dining options, the Horizon Court buffet on Royal Princess has been redefined with a completely new layout. Action stations offer up intriguing choices such as Asian cuisine, Mediterranean dishes, a pasta corner and salad-tossing stations. Diners can also indulge in new specialty experiences at the Crab Shack and Fondues.
Horizon Bistro Pastry Shop – The Horizon Court introduces an industry first: a dedicated pastry shop. Here passengers can indulge in fresh-baked goodies throughout the day and even get to see Princess’ pastry chefs in action as they demonstrate their skills in chocolate work and cake decorating.
Private Cabanas – New private cabana options give passengers the opportunity to personalize their relaxation time, with elegant cabanas in The Sanctuary and poolside cabanas at the Retreat Pool. Cabana guests looking for a gourmet treat can order one of the ship’s new cabana picnic baskets, packed with artisan edibles paired with a premium wine.
