Other Information

The Royal Princess III is a new class for Princess. The new ship design has come under fire from critics because it lacks features found in older model ships. For example the promenade deck does not circle the ship. There are no midship stairs on all decks. There is no aft pool. The main pool is small for the size of the ship. Princess also did away with the Explorers Lounge on this ship. However the Piazza is much larger and the Retreat area has been expanded.

During Oct 2016 drydock stairs were added from the aft of Lido deck to aft of Sun deck. Crew stairs in center of ship were converted to passenger stairs.
