Wouldn’t it be better if each Princess ship had it’s own unique hull art work (like NCL)?

My 100 shares of Carnival Corp stock says; No. They have letters on the ships to differentiate them already.

There is NOTHING that Princess should have, make or do that could possibly be better "like NCL"

Debarking is a cruel procedure done to dogs.
Upgrades, Upsellls and Move Over Offers are completely different things.
As are being denied boarding and being disembarked early.
And don't get me started on Port Charges vs. Government Taxes, Fees, and Port Expenses.
The Jones Act is for cargo. The PVSA is "that terrible law" that restricts USA domestic sailings. But without which there would likely be no cruise ships with casinos, duty free shops, and international crew members willing to work fantastically hard every single day.
Lots of people fly in the morning of the cruise and catch crazy early flights home. Why ask us if you can? Just to be harassed by the regulars?
No hotels have free shuttles, free breakfast, free wifi, or free parking. You pay in the rate. And could have found a better deal paying by the piece.
And don't forget: the cruise line is in complete control of the weather, political unrest, medical emergencies, and anything else that delays or re-routes your cruise. Be sure to demand compensation as it is you and only you who were affected.

NO! Princess should be Princess & let NCL be NCL.
(I don't especially care for the new Princess "art work" on the bow now.)

No. Keeping it the same across the fleet makes for instant brand recognition.

I liked the look of the clean white hull and would not have voted to spend the money to paint all ships in fleet with these waves or Sea Witch hair. I'd rather Princess spent that on maintaining higher quality food items.

Mr Steelers,
What do think about having a Patriots’ flag on the side of the ship for the Super Bowl Champions...
Go Patriots!!!!

I like the Bliss hull work, it sails Alaska so there are fish on the hull.

Don’t think I'd ever sail them again if they did that.

Personally I am not a fan of the hull “art”. I prefer the more classic and traditional lines and painting.
