A new kind of entertainment is about to be rolled out on the all new Royal Princess. Today, Princess cruises just unveiled one of the newest and freshest kinds of entertainment aboard a cruise ship, live tv.
Princess Live! will be a new kind of venue that will take cruise passengers behind the scenes of a live television broadcast that will be featuring singers, live cooking shows, a daily show and more. A 280 seat area will act as a television broadcast studio where audience members can both participate in and watch the venues that Princess is rolling out.
This new entertainment venue will be situated on deck 7 just aft of the Piazza, which will be featured in many of the “broadcasts”. Those of you that have sailed with Princess may be familiar with “The Wake Show”. Aboard the Royal Princess this will be a live broadcasted show that involves audience participation and one special guest from around the ship.
It looks like the Princess Live! show is going to keep the crew busy as it hosts many live events. Not only will passengers be able to watch and enjoy cooking shows, “The Wake Show”, and singers. There will also be trivia, art house films, enrichment classes, murder mysteries, and “Meet the Experts” presentations from the crew.
The live broadcast will also allow onboard musicians to connect with their audience more as they sing and play their instruments in a more intimate atmosphere with “unplugged” and “in-the-round” shows.
“Princess Live! will be an exciting new experience for passengers,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises executive vice president. “Not only will they enjoy the high energy of being part of a live television production, but they also will have a new opportunity to see more intimate performances from many of our onboard entertainers.”
The Royal Princess is set to sail in June of 2013 and is currently under construction. You can see from the virtual tour here that it has revolutionary designs and will be sure to please its passengers.
80% of the ship’s staterooms will be balconies and the ship will carry more than 3,600 passengers. It’s an all new design that has expanded the space of the main atrium and added a glass-bottom walkway on the top deck that will extend 28 feet over the edge of the vessel to give cruisers an unparalleled experience.
We hope to have more information about the Royal Princess as it comes out, but it should be quite a ship.
