Discovery Princess, the newest cruise ship in the Princess Cruises fleet was delivered on January 28 during an official handover at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. Discovery Princess expands the Princess Cruises fleet to 15 MedallionClass vessels and features an evolution of the design platform used for the cruise line’s previous Royal-Class ships.
The 3,660-guest Discovery Princess is the sixth and final Royal-Class newbuild and shares all of the spectacular style and luxury of her sister ships – Enchanted Princess, Sky Princess, Majestic Princess, Regal Princess, and Royal Princess.
With an array of innovative new experiences, guests will enjoy 270-degree sweeping views from the largest balconies at sea in the Sky Suites, unwind in ultimate comfort at The Sanctuary and indulge the senses with world-class dining options.
Plus, Princess live entertainment presents mesmerizing new Broadway-style production shows that can only be seen in the state-of-the-art Princess Theater. Discovery Princess uses the latest technologies to reduce fuel consumption, treat wastewater, and support our environmental compliance efforts.
Families will find creative and engaging programs for kids ages 3 to 7 at Camp Discover and The Lodge for kids ages 8 to 12. Teens aged 13 to 17 can meet and hang out at The Beach House. Spoiled for dining options, the Discovery Princess offers endless possibilities of included venues as well as a variety of specialty dining.
