Princess Cruises has revealed Princess Live!, a new type of cruise ship entertainment venue aboard the Royal Princess. Taking the audience behind the scenes, Princess Live! will showcase live television broadcasts, performances from musicians and special events such as cooking shows, plus the venue will feature an adjacent café.
On Royal Princess’ deck 7, Princess Live! will be a 280-seat venue based on a television broadcast studio. When the ship debuts in June 2013, Princess Live! will serve as a venue for daily broadcasts of “The Wake Show” with a daily live audience. This daily show staring the cruise director and special guests from around the ship is common across the Princess fleet but is rarely staged live.
The Princess Live! studio will also host a variety of events, including game shows, interactive cooking shows, art house films, enrichment classes, murder mysteries, trivia, and “Meet the Experts” presentations from the crew. Additionally, Princess Live! will serve as a performance venue for onboard musicians who will offer “unplugged” and “in-the-round” shows, providing an opportunity for entertainers to connect with the audience in a unique environment.
The adjacent Princess Live! Café will offer passengers interactive wall-mounted screens showing the ship’s position, ports of call, points of interest and even international newspapers. The café will serve up specialty coffees, teas, freshly squeezed citrus juices and pastries in the morning.
Royal Princess will also feature the line’s largest Princess Theater, with unobstructed sight lines from every seat. The ship will also include an updated Vista Lounge at the aft of the ship to serve as an alternate evening performance venue.
