Wow so Princess have released information on their brand new ship the Majestic Princess, to be launched in Summer 2017 this will be the sister ship to both the Regal and Royal Princess. Now where as both of these ships have sailed from Europe and encourage mainly Europeans and Americans onboard, the Majestic Princess will have a different aim as she will be marketed mainly for the Chinese and Asian markets. Her home port will be Shanghai and will even have her name written in Chinese along her hull 盛世公主号meaning “Grand World” or “Grand Spirit.
Many activities will also be focused on the Asian market including T’ai chi at sea, ballroom dancing, subtitled Hollywood movies and Chinese satellite TV channels. Also the restaurants will cater for them too with a wide selection on Chinese dishes in the buffet restaurant, this is a first for such an International cruise company to cater so specifically to one category of client, however the growth of the cruise industry has grown dramatically over the last few years, and Shanghai is a hub for the whole of Asia. I would imagine she will attract passengers from all over the world.
The 3560 passenger ship is expected to take over from the Sapphire Princess which currently sails out of Shanghai and although not fully released yet, her itineraries are expected to concentrate on a variety of Far Eastern ports including Seoul, Busan, South Korea, Fukuoka, Kagoshima, Okinawa and Nagasaki.
The ship will feature Princess cruise signature Movies under the Stars, known as having the largest outdoor cinema at sea, as well as brand new innovative features which were initially launched on her sister ships the Royal and Regal princess, such as the above-the-water SeaWalk which is a glass floor walkway cantilevered over the sea, a little to scary for my liking, but no doubt you will definitely get the full ocean experience.
There is a multi-level atrium, Princess Water Colour Fantasy fountain and light show which sounds fantastic and multiple dining venues including the exclusive Chef’s Table Lumiere, which is a private dining experience that surrounds guests in a curtain of light. if your onboard celebrating a special occasion this experience will be a must do
Majestic will also have more outdoor space, especially around the pools as she will have more pools than her sister ships as well as extra poolside cabanas. Plus there are more balcony cabins and also a first she will have a increased amount of single cabins onboard, which will definitely appeal to travellers
I for one am very excited to see how popular she will be when she is launched and waiting with baited breath when her full schedule will be released……so watch this space
