Princess Cruises Reveals the Ultimate in Relaxation
Next week is National Relaxation Week (15 - 21 August), and in honour of this, Princess Cruises has unveiled details of the expanded Lotus Spa features that will offer the ultimate in relaxation for passengers cruising on board the new Royal Princess.
When the ship débuts in June next year, passengers will find a spa with a welcoming feel and contemporary, sophisticated décor, as well as more treatment rooms than any other Princess spa.
