Princess Cruises ups the wow factor with SeaWalk

See also

In the never-ending world of cruise lines trying to out-do each other in a bid to attract attention, passengers and revenue, Princess Cruises is opening a new chapter with its SeaWalk feature.

Passengers taking a stroll on the Royal Princess (which will make its maiden voyage in May 2013) will be able to walk out over the deep blue sea, which will be a vertigo-inducing 128 below the glass-bottomed floor of the ship's SeaWalk.

This will be the third time Princess Cruises has used the name Royal Princess for a ship, but it will be the first vessel to feature a walkway that actually extends 28 feet out, away and over the waves.

The new Royal Princess will be a 141,000-ton behemoth that will carry up to 3,600 passengers. The cruise line will add a sister ship to its fleet in 2014.

Both vessels are being built at the Fincantieri shipyard near Trieste, Italy.
