Princess Cruises’ newest flagship Royal Princess will sport a plus-size atrium when she debuts in June 2013.

Fifty percent larger than her sister ships, the ‘social hub’ of the vessel will feature an array of brand-new venues along with a twist on some passenger favourites.

“Many features aboard the new Royal Princess will be exciting evolutions of the popular and successful features found throughout our fleet and the atrium is no exception,” Princess Cruises executive vice president Jan Swartz said.

“The expansion in size of this space provided us an opportunity to add some brand new venues to what is already a favourite passenger area.”

Some of these venues include Italian cocktail bar ‘Bellinis’s’, the ‘Ocean Terrace’ seafood bar, a gelateria and the ‘Celebrations’ gift shop offering a range of unique gifts for special occasions celebrated onboard.

Passenger favourites the ‘International Café’, ‘Sabatini’s’ trattoria and ‘Crooners’ martini bar will return, along with the ‘Bar Piazza’ complete with over 300 tea and infusion combinations.
