The “Royal Princess” is a 329-meter cruise ship built by Fincantieri at their shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy.

The “Royal Princess” was launched in August 2012 and delivered to Princess Cruises in spring 2013. The ship's horn can play the first two bars of the The Love Boat theme and usually does it when the ship departs from a port. Do not forget that the original Love Boat was a Princess Cruises' ship, the “Pacific Princess”.

Great photos, VP, especially that second one. Made we wonder why those two were still on board. :-)

So many balconies!

That guy looks so small.

Bravo for the second photo. The balconies.

I'd probably laugh out loud if I ever hear that horn. Fun! She's gorgeous, too, and I love your second photo - looks almost like abstract art.

I would not want to sail on it, but your photos of the ship are very impressive.
Funny about the music!

VP said...

In Livorno they will hear that horn again next Sunday, in the late afternoon.
