Princess Cruises Unveils Designs and Key Features for Majestic Princess
Cruise News – August 24, 2016
Princess Cruises has unveiled designs and announced key features of its newest ship, Majestic Princess, which departs April 4 on her inaugural voyage, a 5-day Adriatic Sea cruise roundtrip from Rome with stops in Kotor and Corfu.
The 3,560-guest Majestic Princess will feature popular culinary offerings from sister ships, Royal Princess and Regal Princess, such as the exclusive Chef’s Table Lumier, Crown Grill & Bar, and Alfredo’s, but will introduce two new specialty restaurants: Harmony, created in partnership with Chef Richard Chen, formerly of Wynn Las Vegas “Wing Lei” (the first Chinese restaurant in North America awarded a Michelin star), which will serve Chef Chen’s interpretation of classic Cantonese dishes; and Le Bistrot, which offers casual French home-style dining with a modern twist that harkens back to an authentic Parisian bistro.
Influenced by fashion, art, and history, the interior designs of Majestic Princess present a sophisticated and stylish visual experience representative of traveling the world. Designs use metal, glass, and inlaid wood; European marble, mosaic tile floors, polished woods, and sumptuous fabrics; and plush Asian-inspired custom-designed carpets.
More than 80 percent of Majestic Princess’ staterooms include a private balcony, and all staterooms feature the new Princess Luxury bed, featuring a custom-made mattress developed by Dr. Michael Breus, the board-certified sleep expert recognized as “The Sleep Doctor.” The bed also includes luxury linens designed by Candice Olson, the Canadian design star of the hit HGTV shows Candice Tells All and Divine Design. The bedding system is exclusively designed for the Princess SLEEP program.
Entertainment includes musical shows Fiera and Fantastic Journey; Movies Under the Stars on the largest outdoor screen at sea; and Water Color Fantasy, a cruise industry first presenting a dazzling water and light show at sea. The new ship will also feature Princess’ signature SeaWalk and SeaView Bar, the Piazza Atrium, and The Shops of Princess.
Following her maiden cruise, Majestic Princess sail 7-, 14-, 21-, and 28-day Europe cruises departing from Rome, Barcelona, or Athens. A repositioning voyage will depart Barcelona on May 14, 2017, visiting Dubai and Singapore before arriving in Shanghai, her new homeport, from where she’ll begin sailing on July 11, 2017, to a variety of destinations in Japan and Korea.
