The photos from Emanuel and Janice Perlman's latest vacation are a little different from shots they took during other cruises. Along with photos of them smiling in tropical ports of call, they've got images of the medical triage area outside their stateroom and vans lined up to whisk passengers to the airport when the cruise was cut short. "We couldn't believe what we were seeing outside our window," Emanuel Perlman said at his Pikesville home yesterday. The couple were among about 240 passengers who were injured aboard the Crown Princess when the cruise ship suddenly tilted to starboard Tuesday afternoon, about an hour and a half after leaving Port Canaveral, Fla., on the last leg of a nine-day trip.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The sudden lurch of the Crown Princess cruise ship last week that sent 94 passengers to the hospital was caused by a bridge officer's mistake, Princess Cruises said yesterday. But in an open letter to passengers posted on the Web site of Los Angeles-based Princess Cruises, President Alan Buckelew said human error was the cause and "the appropriate personnel changes have been made." Princess, declining to specify those changes, said the error was not made by the ship's captain, who continues to command the $500 million vessel, but by another officer who is no longer on active duty.

TOKYO -- The first tantalizing clues were the low heels that Crown Princess Masako wore to the National Bonsai Exhibition in February. Then she caught a cold, or so the Imperial Household Agency announced, and was unable to attend a reception for the German president last month.That did it. To Japan's irrepressible tabloid press and royal watchers, the combination was a sure-fire sign of the news Japan had been waiting for: After nearly four years of marriage to Crown Prince and future Emperor Naruhito, Masako was finally pregnant!

ON BOARD THE REGAL PRINCESS -- Teresa Anderson snoops around every corner of this 811-foot-long floating resort, fretting over details like a hostess waiting for her party guests.The new light fixtures haven't arrived for the pizzeria on the Bravo deck. A small tree is blocking the mural in front of the Adagio bar on the Promenade deck. Someone forgot the black granite for the floor in front of the cabaret on the Dolphin deck. The painting outside the Baha deck is . . . questionable -- an abstract of an iceberg.

Little did the people in the tranquil Belmont, Mass., neighborhood where Masako Owada grew up suspect that having her become Japan's crown princess-to-be would turn into a royal hassle.Suddenly, Japanese reporters and tourists started wandering secluded, winding Juniper Road, knocking on doors to ask where Ms.Owada lived when her diplomat father taught at Harvard."They've been coming constantly," said Esther Coconides, whose daughter owns the house the Owadas rented. "They wanted to come in and see the rooms she occupied."

If your plan is to bypass the mighty euro by cruising Europe on a North American ship next year (and paying in dollars), you better hurry before everyone else snaps up the 63,000 beds. The six large cruise lines that sail predominantly in North America -- Carnival, Celebrity, Holland America, Norwegian, Princess, Royal Caribbean -- plan to base 31 ships in Europe for part or all of 2009. The armada, including several ships that aren't finished yet, will have the capacity to carry more than 63,000 passengers at any one time, depending on season.

Cruise lines are having trouble filling cabins in the Caribbean this season. That's good news for you. In fact, this may be the best time to nab a bargain. "It's been a challenging environment in the Caribbean," said Howard Frank, Carnival Corp.'s vice president and chief operating officer, in a conference call to financial analysts. The hardest hit, he said, were the shorter three-, four- and five-day cruises. To prop up corporate coffers, Carnival Corp. is aggressively cutting prices for its fleet of ships in the Caribbean, Frank said.

PORT CANAVERAL -- A glitch in the autopilot system on the Crown Princess likely caused the month-old cruise ship to tilt harshly to one side, injuring 240 passengers, marine experts said yesterday. About 2,500 of the ship's passengers were bused to Orlando International Airport to fly home yesterday. The final 600 or so are expected to get flights out today. Twenty of the injuries were considered serious, cruise ship officials said, and all are expected to recover fully. Princess Cruise spokeswoman Julie Benson said that each passenger on the nine-day cruise would receive a full refund - an average of about $2,000.
