March 14, 2011:  Princess Cruises unveiled new specifics on the first of its two 141,000 gt, 3,600 passenger newbuilds, the ROYAL PRINCESS, due in 2013.  Taking the name from Princess Cruises’ first newbuild of 1984 (which is now sailing as P&O’s ARTEMIS), the new ROYAL PRINCESS will be constructed by the Monfalcone branch of the Fincantieri Shipyard, near Trieste.  It will feature a cantilevered glass skywalk 128 feet above the sea on its starboard side and a glass-floored Seaview Bar on its port side.  The ship will also have an adults only pool with floating cabanas and a tropical island between two of its pools and an expanded Movies Under The Stars as additional features.  More information on ROYAL PRINCESS will be revealed soon.
