It will also Movies Under the Stars with the largest outdoor screen at sea and 81 per cent of its staterooms will have balconies.
The ship will also feature the liner’s recently-announced Ocean Medallion Class, including the Ocean Medallion, a first-of-its-kind wearable device that will offer enhanced services and a more personalised guest experience.
The vessel will be built at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy.

“With four new ships now due for delivery, starting with Majestic Princess in March, these are incredibly exciting times for Princess Cruises.”
