Princess Cruises today released the latest in its series of videos previewing the new Royal Princess. In this most recent installment, the interior designers creating the look and feel of the new ship offer a preview of what passengers can expect when the vessel debuts in June 2013.
Featuring Vice President of Interior Design Teresa Anderson and Coordinating Architect Giacomo Mortola, the video takes viewers through the ideas behind the new ship design, from the ethereal feel of the marble and glass spiral staircases in the atrium to the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright in the décor of the aft dining room.
For Anderson, Royal Princess' design springs from the concept of 'global chic.' "I believe that's what Princess Cruises is all about - taking influences from fashion, from art, from history... what you capture when you're traveling the world."
While for Mortola, light was an important element. "More than any other project I've worked on, on the new Royal Princess, I used light as a central component of my designs," said Mortola. "The Chef's Table Lumiere in the aft dining room is a great example of this. The table is surrounded by a curtain of fiber-optic lights which creates real drama - unlike any dining experience you've had."
"My goal," notes Anderson, "is to find a harmony of comfortably elegant décor throughout the ship that is spectacular, yet resonates with all types of people. And on Royal Princess with the use of rich and elegant materials with warm tones, I think we've achieved that goal better than ever before."

Anderson joined Princess in 1994 and has overseen the interior design development for all the cruise line's newbuilds and ship refurbishments since. Born in Lima, Peru, Anderson has a long list of outstanding design accomplishments, from government buildings in Brunei to the Paradise Grand Hotel in the Bahamas.
Genoa-based Mortola has a long affiliation with Princess, having begun his initial work as a technical advisor with the former Sitmar Cruises in 1974. One of the recognized leaders in cruise ship architecture, he has been involved in the design of most Princess ships, and has also overseen the refurbishment of many of the line's vessels.
The 3,600-passenger Royal Princess is a new-generation ship currently under construction for Princess Cruises. Among the new features found on board will be a 50 percent larger atrium which is the social hub of the ship; a dramatic over-water SeaWalk, a top-deck glass-bottomed walkway extending more than 28 feet beyond the edge of the vessel; plush private poolside cabanas that appear to be floating on the water; a dazzling water and light show; the new Princess Live! television studio; a dedicated pastry shop; more dining options including a special Chef's Table Lumiere, a private space that surrounds diners in a curtain of light; and balconies on all outside staterooms. The ship's 2013 maiden season will include cruises on the line's signature Grand Mediterranean itinerary throughout the summer, followed by Eastern Caribbean cruises beginning in the fall.
