Princess Cruises, like other cruise companies, has their own version of an cruise vacation that allows passengers to disconnect from real life, embark on activities to see places they don’t really normally see. When passengers adopt no matter the plan is on a cruise line, the result is usually a cruise traveler that walks off the ship by the end, going back to ‘real life’ refreshed and renewed. Different cruise companies focus on different components of that, choreographing individual components of their own unique experience their own way and Princess Cruises is not any exception with their version enabling their guests to ‘Escape Completely.’ Its a tried and true formula for fulfillment containing fueled the queue in the Love Boat for decades. On upcoming Royal Princess, the queue goes one step or two further, using the core components of what they do best and building with them in greater comfort, in no small part because in the physical layout in the ship’s design.
Carnival has their ‘Fun Ships’ and whoever has sailed with them knows precisely what which means. Far higher than a slogan, Carnival has ‘fun’ nailed in just about everything they actually do. Azamara Club Cruises, an entirely different line with just two boutique ships has their ‘destination immersion’ that can the main objective in the experience off their nicely appointed ships and places it squarely on the places they visit, often staying overnight to get a complete experience ashore. Royal Caribbean ‘Wows’ guests with more than the very best, innovative attractions of the unique ships which might be like few other. Celebrity Cruises ‘Modern Luxury’ also offers a well-defined experience that’s heavy on cuisine and luxurious amenities. They’re all a bit different, all unique and each has clearly differentiated themselves from another during the last few years.
It should be no surprise whatsoever that Princess Cruises, waiting eagerly on the sidelines without any new ships during the last five-years, has had stock of itself, what other people are doing and what can certainly be a good fit for existing clientele along with future yet-to-sail with them prospects. The consequence of those a lot of thinking and planning are might know about are seeing unfold on Royal Princess along with younger twin-sister Regal Princess.
Going experience by experience, Princess has added some unique, all to easy to identify line things that beg us to leave completely as never before.
Like the cabana privacy trend with upscale spa treatments that seems to have woven its way into what most cruise companies do? Princess includes a version of this.
When Royal Princess debuts in June, cruisers will find a spa with a welcoming feel and contemporary, sophisticated d??cor, along with more treatment rooms than some other Princess spa. New features will include private Couples Villas and The Enclave ‘ a thermal suite that’s triple how big is any existing Lotus Spa. Here passengers can totally decompress with new relaxing options such as the Hammam (a Turkish-style steam room), the Caldarium (an herbal steam room), the Laconium (a dry heat sauna) and the queue’s first-ever hydro-therapy pool.
‘The potential for total daybed trundle relaxation is one in the key top reasons to cruise with Princess,’ said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises executive vice president in the pr release. ‘So naturally, our signature spa is really a popular location for passengers to leave from any stress and tension. With the new Lotus Spa aboard Royal Princess, we’re excited to give our passengers the ultimate spot to unwind.’
Check these other features too:
Scrub & Shine Bar ‘ As a prelude to your spa treatment, or as an addition to utilization in The Enclave, passengers could get recommendations from your ‘mixologist’ for your perfect scrubs to complement their treatments.

Relaxation Lounge ‘ A private space to unwind before a therapy, this comfortable lounge includes a calming atmosphere and scenic ocean views. Passengers can enjoy a cup full of herbal tea or fruit-infused water while they unwind.
Where these ideas result from is important to remember too. Vice President of Interior Design Teresa Anderson and Coordinating Architect Giacomo Mortola are actually with Princess for quite some time. Mortola since 1974 during Princess Cruises beginning as Sitmar Cruises and Anderson since 1994, also have a hand with what brings Princess on the unique designs of Royal and Regal Princess completely.
‘I believe it is precisely what Princess Cruises is about ‘ taking influences from fashion, from art, from history’ what you capture when you’re traveling the planet,’ noted Anderson.
‘More than some other project I’ve worked on, on the new Royal Princess, I used light as a central component of my designs,’ said Mortola. ‘The Chef’s Table Lumiere inside aft living area is really a great instance of this. The table is in the middle of a curtain of fiber-optic lights which creates real drama ‘ unlike any dining experience a person has had.’
Indeed, known for creating the first-ever chef’s table experience cruising, Princess will probably be setting a brand new standard for this popular knowledge about the debut in the Chef’s Table Lumiere. Offering a magnificent dining experience that may go ahead and take chef’s table to a brand new level, passengers will probably be magically in the middle of a curtain of light ‘ providing a soft wall of privacy that envelopes a custom-made glass table located inside the Concerto living area.
