Princess Cruises has announced the design and key features of Majestic Princess, the newest ship in its fleet.

Jan Swartz, President of Princess Cruises, said: “Over the past 50 years, we have developed a mastery of global travel delivering a truly international cruise holiday experience to our guests.

“With the debut of Majestic Princess, first in Europe and then in China, we invite guests to indulge in a world-class experience that allows them to completely relax, unwind and ultimately ‘come back new’.”

Majestic Princess will sail its inaugural voyage on 4 April 2017, on a five-day Adriatic Sea cruise roundtrip from Rome, with stops in Kotor and Corfu.

The Royal-class ship is a sister ship to Regal Princess and Royal Princess. The ship will offer many of the same distinctive features onboard the sister ships, including the Piazza atrium, the central focal point of the ship; the unique over-the-ocean SeaWalk – a glass-floor walkway extending eight metres beyond the edge of the ship; the Princess Live! TV studio; and the special Chef’s Table Lumiere, a private dining experience that surrounds guests in a curtain of light.

Majestic Princess will also boast new features unique to the ship, including private karaoke rooms with a modern design, fitted with sofas, large TV screens and a mini-bar and two new specialty restaurants – Harmony Cantonese Restaurant, created in partnership with Chef Richard Chen, and Le Bistrot, located in the Piazza.
