An unusual start for me today as I am at Copenhagen Airport waiting on a flight to Gatwick then a train to Southampton to join the brand new Royal Princess. I am quite excited at the prospect of seeing both of the Royal Princess’s and feel it is quite fitting that the Duchess of Cambridge will become a Godmother and a mother within a few weeks of each other.
I am really looking forward seeing the ship as even though Cruise365 have sold Princess Cruises for over 10 years this is actually my first stay on a brand new Princess Ship. Amanda from the office was on Royal Princess on Saturday so if anybody has any specific questions it may be worth calling her as she will be able to help, I will be in the office on Friday and Saturday if you have any queries for me.
I will hopefully be boarding Royal Princess at 330pm UK time and will be trying my best to view and take pictures of as many areas that I can. At 141,000 GRT, a length of 1,082 ft and 18 decks to explore I feel that my legs may feel it in the morning.
I really do hope that Royal Princess lives up to my own expectations as on paper she looks a fresh ship with enough space to relax, entertain and pamper.
I will start snapping away and give my opinions this afternoon, Anth
