Royal Princess celebrates first year anniversary

Royal Princess celebrates first year anniversary
Royal Princess, the 3,560-guest ship launched last year by HRH, The Duchess of Cambridge, marked its first year of sailing, last Friday.

During the past 12 months, Royal Princess, part of the Princess Cruises fleet, has travelled 120,000 miles and carried 150,000 guests. The ship has set sail on 44 cruises, visiting 39 ports in 20 countries including the Bahamas, US and Italy. Royal Princess is currently travelling across Scandinavia and Russia.

The ship will shortly become a star of the small screen, as several crew members were filmed for a behind-the-scenes ITV documentary. The four-part series, entitled ‘The Cruise Ship’, will air over the summer.

The first year has seen Royal Princess’ guests eat 1.2m dinners, and drink 700,000 cocktails and 150,000 bottles of wine.

Royal Princess’ sister ship, Regal Princess, was launched on May 20.
