This episode of Princess Cruises‘ video diary gives cruisers a glimpse into the Engine Control Room and various technical aspects of running a cruise ship.  I think the interviews are a good way to showcase different perspectives in cruise ship operations.  I especially like the information they shared about environmental benefits for Alaska.

Enjoy this unexpectedly fun look at the upholstery shop that now occupies the Vista Lounge onboard the Grand Princess.  (No, they aren’t setting up shop in the lounge for cruisers to buy upholstery!)

Watch as what was the Grand Princess’s Skywalkers Lounge is removed from the ship.  This vantage point gives us an idea of what a massive undertaking these drydock renovations are for Princess Cruises:

Here’s another interesting and fun episode in Princess Cruises‘ video diary.  We get a glimpse of how the crew working on the Grand Princess’s renovations get to spend their free time while in the Bahamas.

For cruisers, it’s a nice, brief overview of the destination, except for the white sand beaches the Bahamas are famous for.  Let Celebrations International Travel’s Princess Cruises Certified Experts help you plan your next cruise vacation!

I particularly like this latest episode from Princess Cruises, showing us how the Grand Princess’s  main galley (kitchen) is still fully operational during drydock, providing all meals, snacks, and beverage station service for those hard at work on the ship’s major renovations.  Life onboard a cruise ship has always intrigued me, and it’s neat to see how these construction workers and other contractors are living and working aboard the Grand Princess.

Princess Cruises‘ food and service has always been excellent, and it’s nice to see that the galley and restaurant crew members are providing the same level of service and quality food to the workers as passengers would receive.  One of my personal favorites is featured in this video, Princess Cruises‘ signature fresh pasta!

We look forward to helping you plan your next adventure aboard Princess Cruises!
