Part of the fun of cruising is the nightlife on board the ship. You get back from spending the day in port, have dinner, and let the fun begin. Maybe you check out a show in the theater, play a few games in the casino, or have a few drinks and some dancing in the nightclub. Today’s new ships have a ton to do to keep you entertained long into the night.

Recently Princess Cruises gave us all better look at what the nightlife will look like on their newest ship, the Royal Princess. The Royal Princess will make her debut on June 16, 2013. She will be sailing 12-day Grand Mediterranean voyages before her first trans-Atlantic voyage to Fort Lauderdale where she will sail from for the winter.
“Royal Princess will feature the widest variety of entertainment we have ever offered at sea,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises’ executive vice president. “No matter how passengers like to spend their evenings at sea, we’ll have an exceptional array of options to keep passengers entertained.”
Club 6 – A new dance club, conveniently located on Deck 6 near the Atrium, Club 6 offers a vibrant space with an intimate atmosphere and contemporary decor. Passengers can grab a cocktail and dance to their favorite hits.
Production Shows – With high-definition screens and a brand new lighting system to enhance each show, the Princess Theater will offer a larger and more spectacular space for the line’s original production shows and entertainers. Four new productions will debut aboard Royal Princess, including “Colors of the World,” an experiential journey through the destinations visited by Princess ships; “Spectacular!” a musical revue extravaganza; “Sweet Soul Music,” an upbeat tribute to Rhythm and Blues; and “What the World Needs Now,” a timeless, elegant show celebrating the music and style of the ‘60s.
Vista Lounge – A more intimate entertainment setting, the Vista Lounge will host a variety of top-notch entertainers each night, from live bands to comedians and illusionists, plus themed parties and special events.
Casino – The Princess Casino aboard Royal Princess will feature the latest new slots and table games. Passengers can indulge in their favorite games of chance, from blackjack to Texas Hold’em and roulette, or participate in the excitement of slot tournaments.
Water & Light Show –Something that I’m excited to see is on the top deck where pools with fountains shoot plumes of water to delight and amaze all members of the family. Royal Princess also boasts a second-level stage above the pool area where live bands will play during unforgettable evening parties.
Crooners – The resident entertainer in Crooners will keep the crowds singing along while passengers try to choose their favorite from the bar’s famous selection of more than 50 martini varieties.
Bellini’s – The new Bellini’s bar offers a prime location for watching the action in the Piazza below. This hotspot serves up a variety of Bellini-inspired drinks, including the new signature “Royal Bellini.”
Movies Under the Stars – Naturally Princess’ signature poolside theater will have a variety of movies and concert playing on the big screen. Featuring the largest Movies Under the Stars screen yet, Royal Princess offers passengers a great view while they relax on a comfortable lounger snuggled under a cozy fleece blanket and snack on complimentary fresh-popped popcorn or delicious cookies and milk.
For me, I’m excited about the water show on the pool deck. My other item I’m really looking forward to is the Movies Under the Stars. I like the open air. Love to be outside so that’s why those intrigue me. I probably could be found in the casino playing a little poker though.
