Musical salute welcomes Royal Princess

Musical salute welcomes Royal PrincessA musical salute provided a spectacular welcome for Royal Princess to Southampton, England today (June 7) as the new cruise ship arrived to begin a week-long series of special inaugural events. British actor, director and writer Simon Callow orchestrated the Southampton University Brass Band to serenade the new Princess Cruises ship with a rendition of “God Save The Queen” as the vessel sailed into the harbour. Royal Princess will be officially named in Southampton on June 13 by The Duchess of Cambridge. The 3,600-passenger Royal Princess is a new-generation ship sporting such features as a dramatic multi-storey atrium serving as the social hub of the ship. an over-water SeaWalk, a top-deck glass-bottomed walkway extending 28 feet beyond the edge of the ship. plush private poolside cabanas that appear to be floating on water. the new Princess Live! television studio. the largest pastry shop at sea. a special Chef’s Table Lumiere, a private dining experience that surrounds diners in a curtain of light. and balconies on all outside staterooms.
