Royal Princess Staterooms Offer New Amenities Suggested by Passengers
Royal Princess’ staterooms offer a number of updated features inspired by suggestions made by the line’s passengers. Among the changes are more contemporary décor, larger showers and hand-held shower heads, pillow top mattresses, upholstered headboards, bigger television screens, and energy efficient lighting with card readers to help conserve electricity.
Deluxe Balcony – Debuting on Royal Princess, this new category of stateroom is an extra spacious balcony cabin with a comfortable sofa bed and some of the upgraded amenities found in a mini-suite stateroom, including enhanced bathroom amenities, waffle bathrobe and an upgraded duvet. Royal Princess features 720 deluxe balcony staterooms throughout the ship.
Mini-Suite – In addition to the new general stateroom amenities, mini-suites offer a decorative central lighting fixture, a privacy curtain between the bed and sitting area, and marble-topped counters.
Suite – Suites feature larger televisions, two sinks in the bathroom, accent lighting and a glass-paneled shower. For the first time on a Princess ship, suite passengers have use of a dedicated concierge lounge, an exclusive area to relax or work, with access to full front desk services, plus light snacks and beverages. Here, these passengers have dedicated staff to assist with such things as shore excursions, specialty dining or Lotus Spa reservations. It will also be used as a private disembarkation lounge for suite passengers.
All staterooms feature a variety of subtle changes based on feedback from passengers. Room décor uses contemporary and rich finishes, modern carpet patterns, and soft, soothing colors. Bathrooms offer larger shower spaces and hand-held shower heads. Sinks are square to provide more vanity space, mirrors feature built-in vanity lighting, and beds have pillow top mattresses and upholstered headboards. Decorative wall sconces provide enhanced lighting and televisions will be larger and wall-mounted.
Some changes have also been added to make traveling with technology easier. Electrical sockets have been spaced farther apart to accommodate multiple plugs and now offer a 220-volt socket. Additionally, several energy-saving features have been built in to the staterooms, including a card reader that activates the room’s lighting, plus low-energy LED lighting fixtures.
Families traveling in more than one cabin can take advantage of another new option with the addition of 50 adjoining staterooms.
