Discovery Princess: the newest cruise ship in the Princess Cruises fleet

The newest cruise ship in the Princess Cruises fleet – Discovery Princess – was delivered on 28th January 2022 during an official handover at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. The new cruise ship 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 also uses the latest technologies to reduce fuel consumption, treat wastewater, and support our environmental compliance efforts. In addition, Discovery Princess is the newest ship to join the fleet offering Princess MedallionClass Vacations which begins with the Medallion™ wearable, a quarter-sized, device that enables everything from expedited contactless boarding to locating loved ones anywhere on the ship, as well as enhanced service like having whatever guests need, delivered directly to them, wherever they are on the ship. In addition, guests can share their favorite cruise moments using MedallionNet, the best WiFi at sea, as well as stay connected with friends and family back home, work remotely anywhere on the ship, quickly post content and stream favorite movies and shows. As the leading cruise line on the west coast, Discovery Princess will depart Italy and make her way to the Port of Los Angeles to sail on a series of Mexican Riviera and California Coast voyages from 27th March to 14th April 2022, before heading up the Pacific coast to begin a season of seven-day Alaska cruises from Seattle.

  1. For a long time now, I’ve wanted to see Seattle and do an Alaska cruise. This could be my opportunity to tick both boxes.

  2. Do you remember all those voices of woe at the beginning of 2020 when the pandemic began? Some Cassandras said it would be the end of the cruise industry. Well, here we are 2 years later and cruising is going from strength to strength.
