The Royal Princess Cruise Ship is the perfect holiday retreat for travelers wanting to visit some of the world’s fascinating destinations. The 30,200 ton, 710 passenger vessel provides a wonderful and intimate ambience for travelers on board. The Royal Princess has just about everything you need for an exciting holiday cruise – from fresh water swimming pools, to casino, and exciting night spots.
On board, passengers would enjoy the stunning observation lounge with floor to ceiling windows on three sides. The ship boasts of its fine wood paneling and leather armchairs, and a massive library that houses over 4,000 titles. In fact, its library is one of the best stocked at sea. The ship has a total of 355 staterooms, most of which offers a balcony for an extraordinary view. Probably the most beautiful spot would have to be the dramatic grand staircase which reminds you of the ones found in transatlantic liners during the Gilded Age.
Some of the destinations of the Royal Princess include Alaska, Caribbean, the islands of Hawaii and Tahiti, Europe and Mediterranean, Panama Canal, and South America. The staterooms are designed for longer cruises, with sufficient closet space, a small sitting area, robes and a bathtub. The suites are generally nice, complete with dining rooms, entertainment centers, whirlpool bathtubs, and a large balcony that provides an outstanding view of the ocean.
Restaurants and Bars
There are two specialty restaurants on board, Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria and Sterling Steakhouse, but you would need reservations for a nice dinner.

The room service is also available all the time free of charge.
