New Princess Cruises vessel floats out

Date Posted: 06 Feb 2008
Category:
The newest member of Princess Cruises', Ruby Princess, has begun her official float out in Italy, it has been announced.

Princess Cruises reports that the move symbolises a "significant construction milestone" and a special ceremony took place at the shipyard to mark the occasion.

Once the dock is filled with water in the next 48 hours or so, the ship will be floated out to an outfitting dock where the final stages of construction finishing will be completed.

Ruby Princess is set to feature a "dramatic piazza-style atrium" which will include small eateries and rotating series of performing street artists.

The new cruise ship will also include an adults-only retreat called The Sanctuary in addition to a large outdoor movie screen.

Ruby Princess is scheduled to begin her maiden sailings in November 2008 in the Caribbean.

Princess Cruises recently launched a new streamlined disembarkation process on its fleet in a bid to maximise passengers' enjoyment of their cruise holidays.
