Launched in the same year, these sister-ships include all the features traditionally enjoyed on Princess's Grand-class vessels, but with a twist. They're larger than their Grand-class fleet mates, yet carry fewer passengers relative to their size. As a result, they have sleeker profiles, a higher ratio of space per person and feel much roomier.
Inside, the arrangement of public rooms is a bit different, with the signature Wheelhouse Bar moved forward of its position on Grand-class ships and, in its place, an expanded Internet Café, where beverages and snacks are actually served. An Asian-theme full-service spa offers a relaxing thermal suite, for a fee. All the elements of a Princess ship are here, particularly the small-ship atmosphere and sparkling, yet understated, interior decoration.
