Debuting earlier in 2014, the Regal Princess marks the cruise line’s next generation. The sister ship to the Royal Princess, the Regal Princess features multiple upgrades compared to previous classes. For one, the Atrium – the ship’s social and primary casual dining area – is larger and includes more restaurants, lounges, and entertainment options. Two, private dining spans a greater range of flavors. And three, Movies Under The Stars® now has its largest screen so far – 30 percent greater! Ordered in 2010, the 19-deck ship set sail for its maiden voyage in May 2014. Princess now has this Royal Class ship scheduled for Mediterranean and Eastern Caribbean itineraries.

Princess prides itself on flexible dining covering a range of culinary choices, all made with the freshest ingredients. Now with expanded private dining and more specialty restaurants, the Regal Princess offers: Traditional: The standard cruise experience gives you the same table mates and wait staff each night, with meals at a fixed time. Taking the experience to a new level, the Regal Princess presents Chef’s Table Lumiere, or meals served behind a softly-lit curtain. It’s just as extravagant as it is intimate. Any Time: Along with the dining rooms allowing meals at your leisure, consider going down to a private wine cellar to savor the cuisine. Specialty: Princess begins with the standards, such as Italian eatery Sabatini’s and steakhouse the Crown Grill, and adds more restaurants. Casual: Want a meal by the poolside? Considering a gelato? Get both and more with the expanded casual dining possibilities. Choose from the Horizon Court, the Pastry Shop, Alfredo’s Pizzeria, the Ocean Terrace seafood bar, Gelato, the International Café, and Vines, which serves wines, sushi, and tapas.
Entertainment & Activities
There’s so much to do on the Regal Princess, you won’t want to leave once you arrive in port. The new features begin with entertainment. The standard Movies Under The Stars® lets you see the same sports games, concerts, and first-run movies by the poolside – but this time, the screen is significantly larger. As well, the Princess Theater, considered the largest in the cruise line’s history, complements Princess Live!, a space for broadcast shows, culinary demonstrations, live concerts, game shows, and comedy. For something more leisurely, view the ocean from the ship on the new SeaWalk, a glass-paneled walkway extending over the water. Similarly, the Princess® WaterColor Fantasy puts on a dazzling display of sounds and light with dancing fountains. In the evening, the nightlife is almost like going to your city’s downtown – if not better! Check out the new Club 6, or hang around the many new lounges, including the Vista Lounge, the Italian-themed Bellini’s, Crooner’s Lounge and Bar, or the Wheelhouse Bar, known for its live piano entertainment. And for something familiar, test your luck and your good hand at the Princess Casino. The Regal Princess takes daytime activities up a notch, as well. While adults can enjoy Princess’ classic Sanctuary, the Lotus Spa, Retreat Pool, and Fountain Pool present different atmospheres for each traveler. As well, stay in shape or gear up for that long walk in the Fitness Center or the private aerobics studio. For something more leisurely, the putting green is open for golf, bocce ball, or croquet, or consider table tennis, the jogging track, or the laser shooting range – whichever matches your activity level. Children, too, have more options onboard. While Princess divides those under 17 into three age groups, activities go from arts and crafts to video games and the new DJ booth.
