Picture below of the 500 ton section of the keel which was laid on Thursday for the new Princess Cruises ship ' Royal Princess '.

She will be about 141,000 grt and carry 3,600 passengers.

She is due to enter service in the spring of 2013.

Royal Princess - in service less than a year from now? WOW! Shipbuilders Fincantieri must really know their stuff.

Don't be so sure. :) I booked the Royal Princess Maiden Passage for October 2013 last April and the ship was sold out... completely. I started out on the wait list and got a cabin; my sister booked about a month ago and is still over #400 on the wait list for any non-inside cabin. Her first cruises in the Caribbean are sold out as well.

If you see a cruise you'd like to take, I'd grab it. :)

Picture from the ship yard showing the ' Sea Walk ' which when finished will be built out about 30 feet from the side of the Royal Princess.

It has a glass floor, and is about 128 feet above the water ! :eek:
