Princess' website boasts of the "new" Royal Princess. Did they give another ship that title, or is it the same Royal Princess I sailed on maybe five or six years ago? Anyone know?

This one is the second to carry that name for Princess. It is one of the former Renaissance ships - the R-8, that then became the Minerva II for Swan Hellenic. It was transferred to Princess from Swan Hellenic when both were under the Carnival corporate umbrella (Swan no longer is) and rechristened as the Royal Princess by Lorraine Artz, Princess' most traveled passenger, who maintains a suite on board and travels with the ship most of the time. We were on her for the Montreal to Fort Lauderdale Colonial America cruise this past fall. She's a sibling to Tahitian and Pacific Princesses, but was built without the mini-suites, so carries a few more passengers - around 700 to their 600 plus.

The current Royal Princess was built in 2001. She went into service for Princess in May 2007. She is a delightful ship. For a photo tour of her: http://beyondships.com/Princess-RP-Tour-1.html

The original Royal Princess was built in 1984 and is now P&O Cruises' Artemis. She is also very nice - - all outside cabins. For a photo tour of her:
