Regal Princess joined the Princess Cruises' fleet in May 2014. As sister ship to the Royal Princess, this contemporary ship retains the evolutionary design of her predecessor, all perfectly complemented by chic interiors, modern artwork and a glittering array of on-board facilities. The splendid Piazza Atrium serves as the social hub of the ship with plentiful bars, restaurants, shops and entertainment venues lining the balconies, along with atmospheric lighting and a grandiose horseshoe-shaped staircase at its heart. Unique on-board experiences include 'walking over water' along the glass-floored Sea Walk and admiring the awesome panoramic vistas from the cantilevered Sky View Bar.
Days at sea are the best time to enjoy the highlights of Regal Princess. Soak up the sun by day alongside the Fountain Pool, where interactive sound and light Princess WaterColour Fantasy shows light up the decks after dark. Adult-only The Sanctuary, with its private cabanas, whirlpools and the Retreat Pool, is the perfect place to escape. Indulge your mind and body in Lotus Spa and The Enclave thermal suite. Add activity to your day with a spinning class or join in a game of basketball at Centre Court. The Pelicans and Shockwaves Centres offer fun and activities for children aged from 3 to 12 years, while the Remix Teen Lounge is perfect for teenagers.
Regal Princess presents a myriad of dining styles and culinary experiences in her restaurants and eateries. The Allegro Dining Room hosts fixed time Traditional Dining, and the Symphony and Concerto eateries offer Anytime Dining options, each serving a five-course menu of gastronomic delights.
