The Royal Princess sets sail with ClearShield on board

Princess Cruises is one of the premier cruise lines in the world. Today, its fleet carries more than one and a half million passengers each year. The Royal Princess is the latest addition to the fleet and the fifteenth Princess Cruises ship to be protected with Ritec ClearShield®.


The new Royal Princess’ evolutionary design builds on the hallmarks of the Princess Cruises brand, to offer new and innovative ways for its customers to enjoy the ultimate cruising experience. This has now extended to the soaring new glass atrium, an impressive glass walkway, cabin windows and other exterior glass which all need to maintain a sparkling appearance and optimal vision for greater viewing pleasure.

Glass in the marine environment faces some of the harshest conditions, however, ClearShield® Glass will be able to resist the salt sea spray staining and discolouring the glass on the ship as well as ensuring the glass looks as clean as possible.

Ritec treated over 15,500 sq.m. of glass to protect the Royal Princess from the damaging effects of moisture, alkalinity and dirt.

A team of Ritec Applicators travelled to Italy to treat the glass on the Royal Princess after being commissioned by the main contractor, the Somec Group.

Applying the ClearShield System onto the glass has resulted in a higher quality of glass giving excellent vision. In addition, the ship’s glass will now stay in pristine condition for longer and will always be easier to clean.
