Contest: Win Big in the First-Ever Cruise Ship Surgery Guessing Game (With Video)

April 26, 2011 | By | 53 Comments

Like an aging starlet unrecognizable after her latest bout with rhinoplasty, the 2,670-passenger Grand Princess is forever altered. That’s because the 13-year-old Princess Cruises vessel, which is in the midst of a massive refurb (details here), recently had its distinctive “shopping cart” handle — aka Skywalkers disco — sliced off its stern. After Skywalkers was separated from superstructure, a giant floating crane (the Chesapeake 1000) carried off the 161-ton former dance club. In honor of the ship’s new profile, we’re running a little contest:


Check out the surgery video below and then … guess the square footage of Skywalkers! Post your wager (one per player) in the comments section, and the closest to the pin as of 5:30 p.m. EDT will win a Cruise Critic T-Shirt.
