Princess now has a new look

Looks great to me. First time I saw the logo was when we got on the Fair Princess in 1990, didn’t realize they called it the “Sea Witch” until much later. Loved it, I’m from the transportation industry and gave it the top rating for a logo in that game.

Had it in my mind that the logo was called, the “Fair Princess”, for a long time, the flowing hair and all. Anyway, it appears to streamline the looks of the relatively blunt bow on their two largest ships, which was necessary.

What I really like though, is that now they have a public staircase next to the mid-ship elevator tower, in the Royal, the Regal is next.

Looks great, I am looking forward to getting on one of the new ships.

Looks like they are taking a cue from NCL.

Whenever a new paint scheme comes out for whatever, there always is a huge variety of opinion, some not so kind. Couple of choice ones here regarding the new Princess look. LOL:

“On the other hand, I find the NCL bow "artwork" to be tacky and I think it gives the line a low end feel. That said, I did have an enjoyable cruise on their cheapest ship with friends who wanted to save money. It was lower end, but we knew what we were getting into.”

“At least it is not quite as tacky as Norwegian; they are really bad. There is no way that elegance can be indicated with such "fun" stuff plastered on the bow and down the sides.”

“I really like the look, at least in the photos. Adds color and distinguishes Princess ships from others."

"Thankfully not black and dreary like Holland America's "death ships".

HAL's hulls are a very dark blue, not black.

the two who posted about NCLs hulls being " tacky ", are probably Carnival fanatics.

that being said, I like the new Princess hull art.

Now, having allegiance to only Princess, HAL and Regent where two lines have white hulls and one mostly black, (hey my wife tells me I’m color blind, maybe it is blue) I have a tough time arguing the virtues of any of these though from a paint job standpoint.

However, with respect to dark hulls, last winter we ran across the Disney Fantasy. I must say, it is the most impressive ship, color wise, sleek--design wise, etc. that I have ever seen.

Agree - looks great!

I agree.

I was on the Royal in April and going again in November - when did they add the staircase?

Just happened, when it came out of dry dock the other day. Apparently they converted the crew staircase, which was always there, to a public staircase.

I think it looks great, I also like NCL s designs.

The dark hulls are really nice, they give a touch of class.
