Fincantieri floated out the new Royal Princess at their Monfalcone yard today. As noted in the video, the ship and the ceremony had a special connection to the original Royal Princess.
A detail of the ships port side shows the level of completion as it is moved to the outfitting dock.
This is the bell that you heard about in the video which will like the original Royal Princess with the newest ship to bear the name.
Royal Princess will be delivered in the spring of 2013 and will enter service in June 2013.
