The Regal Princess is the latest addition to the Princess Cruises fleet. Holding 3560 passengers, this new vessel is the sister ship of the popular Royal Princess. Both the Royal Princess and the Regal Princess represent the new generation of Princess ships, complete with exciting new innovations such as The SeaWalk glass-bottom walkway, spectacular dancing fountains and a special app messaging service to help guests keep in touch with each other whilst onboard. In addition, guests will also find a large range of dining options, opportunities for relaxation, sports and fitness activities, not to mention a fantastic array of evening entertainment.
The ship will sail across the exotic Caribbean, stopping at ports such as St.Thomas, St. Maarten and Princess Cays in the beautiful Bahamas. In April 2015, the ship will reposition to Northern Europe, sailing to Russia, Scandinavia and even the UK. Once in port guests will be able to choose from plenty of optional shore excursions, from snorkelling in the stunning turquoise waters of the Bahamas to enjoying a classical ballet performance in the fascinating city of St. Petersburg, Russia.
There are a number of Stateroom options available onboard the Regal Princess, from comfortable Interior rooms, to spacious suites complete with a balcony, plus wheelchair accessible Staterooms.
