If you are ready for a cruise ship experience like no other, you need to take a cruise on the next generation of cruise ships. The Regal Princess is luxurious and innovative, and with destinations all over the world, there is a cruise on a Regal Princess perfect for you. We cruised the Caribbean on this amazing ship and are so excited to share all the unbelievable features of the Regal Princess with you.
About The Ship
The Regal Princess, designed in Italy, embodies everything we imagine when we think of Italian design. Italy is a trendsetter when it comes to all things design which explains why this ship is so innovative.
The atrium on this ship is truly a masterpiece. It is fifty percent larger than on other ships. Inside this piazza style atrium, you will find casual dining options and places to hang out with your travel companions. There are even exciting street style performances and live music there! You can grab a glass of wine in the wine bar before your dinner reservations elsewhere on the ship.
The Lotus Spa is the place to go if you want to treat yourself to some first class pampering. With extensive spa and salon services, you could spend a whole day there and feel better from head to toe. There are wraps, therapies, treatments, massages, and pools to help you feel centered and healthy.
One of the most exciting new features on the Regal Princess is the Sea Walk on the top deck. The Sea Walk is a glass bottom walkway that juts out from the side of the ship, giving you a view of the ocean like you are walking on air. You have never experienced anything like the feeling you have when you look down and all you see under your feet is the deep blue sea. You can take some fun pictures here for sure!
The Sanctuary and Retreat pool also on the top deck are exclusively for adults. Relax in this more low key environment. Swim in the pool without kids doing cannonballs and hang out in the Sanctuary without hearing babies cry. The Retreat pool has little gazebos around for lounging. The Sanctuary offers a quiet, shaded, and luxurious space to be still and calm.
Kids aren’t left out though. If you travel with your kiddos, the Regal Princess has something for them too. The Youth and Teen Center is set up to entertain kids in an age appropriate way from ages 3 to 17. Kids are separated into age groups and won’t want to leave.
In the evenings, meet on the deck for movies under the stars on the largest screen on a Princess ship ever. They play current blockbuster films. There is just something about watching a movie on the big screen under the stars that feels magical. It is a great way to unwind and have a low key evening.
The Princess Theater presents original productions in a full theater atmosphere. Take in a show everyday! The entertainment is spectacular. The dancers and singers are incredibly professional and everything goes off without a hitch. Even theater aficionados will be impressed with the level of performance. Everyone in the audience will love how catchy the songs and dances are and will find themselves humming a tune from the show long after the curtain falls.
For night life, they’ve got you covered as well. The Club 6 night club is perfect for dancing the night away. If you are feeling lucky, check out the Princess Casino for popular casino and card games.
Your fitness routine doesn’t have to come to a screeching halt while on your cruise. There is a fitness center with equipment for cardio and strength training. You can run or walk laps on the outdoor jogging track. This walk adds a fun twist to your normal workout, that is unless you normally work out on the open sea in the Caribbean! There is also a private aerobics studio and courts for basketball and volleyball as well as a golf swing area and bullseye shooting simulator.
No matter what your budget, there is a luxurious and comfortable stateroom for you. These new rooms were designed by taking guest feedback into account. The interior rooms have all the amenities you could ever want. If you desire a balcony, you can choose from different levels of rooms based on size and view. The premium accommodation on this ship is the suite with a balcony. The suite is expansive and includes amenities like a walk in closet and access to the Club level.
