China-bound Majestic Princess takes a bow with new livery design

Majestic Princess, the first ship built and designed specifically for the China market, has made her first ocean appearance, showing off a brand new livery design that will eventually adorn all the ships in the Princess Crusies fleet.

“For nearly half a century our Princess logo has represented the adventure of cruise travel around the globe,” Jan Swartz, the Princess Cruises president, said ysterday. “Now our ships sail to more than 360 ports of call worldwide and will be instantly recognised from afar. As the very first cruise ship built for China, we take great pride that Majestic Princess is our first ship to proudly display our new livery design.”

Majestic Princess, which sets sail next year, reached a significant construction milestone yesterday when the vessel “floated out” in its building dock at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. The occasion was marked by a traditional ceremony as the ship met ocean water for the first time.

The ship will offer many of the same special features as Royal Princess and Regal Princess. These include a large atrium serving as the social hub of the ship; a top-deck glass-bottomed walkway extending 28ft beyond the edge of the ship; the Princess Live! interactive studio; and a special Chef’s Table Lumiere, a private dining experience that surrounds diners in a curtain of light.

Majestic Princess, which will homeport in Shanghai and carry 3,560 guests, will also feature a number of new venues and experiences created for the Chinese market, the details of which will be revealed in the coming months.
