|The Grand Plaza, also called the Atrium, is a huge, three-story open area in the center of the ship that is very impressive. It was hard to take a picture of the atrium that does justice to how it really looked. On top of that, the synthetic lighting in the area gave the pictures a strange hue. The first picture above came on the CD I bought. The other two pictures are mine.
|1. Chess anyone? Luckily, the pieces are not heavy. 2. In the second picture, you get a good view of the Skywalker Lounge and the entryway sloping up to it. 3. The entry to Skywalker Lounge is like a crazy disco. 4. Although the picture of the Princess Theater is dark, I included it because Genelle and I really liked watching the shows there. Princess puts on productions every bit as professional and extravegant as a show on broadway. The lighting, sound system and understage hydraulic elevators were all state-of-the-art. NOTE: I did not take the last two pictures.|
|I took all of the pool pictures above. 1. This indoor pool is called the Calypso pool. On those cool Alaskan evenings, this is a nice warm place to swim. The entire structure above is a huge skylight. 2. This is called the Spa pool because it is located next to the gym and a beauty shop and is surrounded by lots of rooms for massage, suntanning and other health treatments 3. There are several large Jacuzzi pools on the deck where I am standing to take this picture. The ship is not as narrow as this picture makes it look. There are large dining rooms for the 24-hour buffet just off both sides of this pool. 4 & 5. Neptune's Reef is an outdoor pool near the center of the ship. The second picture, shot from the opposite end, gives a good idea of it's location.|
