It is actually more accurate to say that the link to the picture for the bridge cam is live. The image itself is not being refreshed. My guess is they were testing the cam and the link and then turned it off. We’ll have to keep an eye on it to see when it updates again.
I’ve updated my Princess Cruises webcam page to include Royal’s bridge cam. It is a great page to bookmark if you want to keep an eye on all the ships in the Princess Cruises fleet.
