At a Glance: A Travel + Leisure World’s Bet 2016 winner, placing seventh in the Mega Ocean Ship category. Like its sister ship the Regal Princess, the 3,560-passenger Royal Princess is the line’s largest class of vessel. It manages to balance modern touches (resort-style pampering, crowd-pleasing specialty restaurants) with traditional ones (formal nights, set seating times), offering something for old- and new-school cruisers.
