Royal Princess is a Modern, Model Megaship

The current wave of 3,500- to 4,000-passenger ships introduced in the industry in the last couple of years or so have ushered in all manner of new features and functionality, and Royal Princess (launched mid-2013) is no exception.  A few nice touches:  ceiling fans above tables on the pool deck; an outdoor, all-weather par course circuit ringing the jogging track; Movies Under the Stars with custom chaise pads; Watercolor Fantasy water & light show nightly; nice Asian food station in Horizon Court; the first Lido-dedicated Pastry Shop; check-in/check-out through security with handhelds, which speeds up the process greatly; and the Sea Walk observation platform.
