Crown Princess was built by Fincantieri for Princess Cruises as the first of a slightly different subset of vessel of the 'Grand Class' series of ships. A brief technical description of the sister ship Ruby Princess can be found at www.ship-technology.com.
Photos of Grown Princess are found at ShipParade. A review of Grand Princess is found at www.cruisepage.com.
In July 2006 Crown Princess had to return to port after heeling to extreme angles due to unusual rudder action causing several passengers and crewmembers to be injured and damage to the unsecured furniture. More on this incident can be read in the corresponding NTSB report.
