The wonders of a modern cruise ship can sometimes rival the wonders on shore. To this end, Princess is offering The Ultimate Ship Tour, a three-hour look that goes beyond the public areas with visits to the ship’s engine control room, medical center, print shop, laundry, photo lab, bridge, and other places typically seen only by the crew. Participants will also receive themed mementos at many of the stops along the route. The tour will be offered once or twice per cruise on an at-sea day and costs $150 per person. The program will debut in November aboard the new Ruby Princess (at right) and eventually will be introduced on all Princess ships.
