Royal Princess to Debut Maiden Season in Mediterranean

February 14, 2012 By: Adam Leposa

Princess Cruises’ newest ship, the Royal Princess, will start its debut season sailing the Mediterranean.

The ship’s inaugural voyage, departing June 16, will be a seven-day Iberia cruise from Southampton to Barcelona. After that, it will sail a program of 12-day Grand Mediterranean cruises between Barcelona and Venice beginning on June 23.

Bookings for the maiden season will go on sale March 15. The line will also offer two three-day preview cruises sailing roundtrip from Southampton on June 10 and 13 that will be available for booking at a later date.

At the same time the line also announced more details about the ship’s signature atrium. The space will be 50 percent larger than on the newest class of Princess ships and will boast a number of new features, including Bellini’s Italian cocktail bar, Ocean Terrace seafood bar, a gelateria, and Celebrations, a new gift shop for those marking special occasions onboard.

Passenger spaces returning from previous ships include the International Café, Sabatini’s Trattoria, and Crooners martini bar, which will now feature dueling piano entertainment and an ocean view. Also, the Bar Piazza will feature a twin tea tower with over 300 tea and infusion combinations.
