Royal Princess Cruise News from the Shipyard

Tweet Diary from the Shipyard

Shipyard visit reveals new photos of Royal Princess

Shipyard visit via Twitter


Today, Princess Cruises will tour the shipyard with a small group of  media and bloggers to check on the construction progress of Royal Princess. Of course, I would have jumped at the chance to put on a construction hat and walk around the shipyard. But, not everyone can be invited to the party.

But, because of social media and Twitter, those of us left behind (34,775 Twitter followers and 1,094,985 Facebook fans) can follow along in real-time. Although it’s not exactly the same thing, I am really enjoying seeing all the photos and updates from the live shipyard tour of the new 3,600-passenger Royal Princess cruise ship set to debut in June 2013. You too can keep up with the buzz by following along the #RoyalPrincess hashtag.

Lauderdale.
