(8:10 a.m. EST) -- Princess Cruises' newest ship, Regal Princess, successfully completed five days of sea trials this week. The at-sea maneuvers assessed the ship's propulsion, steering and navigational equipment.
The ship is now back in the Fincantieri shipyard for further exterior and interior finishing.
Regal Princess debuts May 20 with a seven-day Mediterranean sailing from Venice.
