Introduction To Princess Cruises’ Newest Ship, Discovery Princess

Introduction To Princess Cruises’ Newest Ship, Discovery Princess

On 29th April 2022, Princess Cruises held their traditional naming ceremony celebration for their newest ship, Discovery Princess. Joining its sister ship, Enchanted Princess, which completed its maiden voyage in November 2021, Discovery Princess becomes the 15th ship in the cruise line’s fleet. Below, we share what you can expect from this latest luxury vessel.

A MedallionClass® ship

Like Enchanted Princess, Discovery Princess is a MedallionClass® ship and the final addition to Princess Cruises’ Royal Class. Offering the MedallionClass® experience means that guests can enjoy the industry’s latest innovations in contactless, personalised service. Perks include expedited embarkation, touch-free boarding and high-speed Wi-Fi. You can also order food and drink, reserve a table in one of the onboard restaurants or book entertainment, all at the touch of a button. 

The cabins

Discovery Princess is one of Princess Cruises’ ships renowned for the luxury of their Sky Suite. Hosting up to five guests, the suite has a continuous balcony stretching over 1,000 square feet and a spectacular 270-degree panorama. With a dedicated Suite Experience Manager to attend to your every need and a range of inclusive amenities, it’s just perfect for a special celebration.

Discovery Princess also has an excellent range of other suite options, from balcony staterooms with private outdoor space, budget-friendly interior staterooms and a selection of wheelchair-accessible options.

Entertainment

On Princess Cruises’ ships, you’ll be dazzled by their Broadway-calibre productions. Debuting this spring and exclusive to Discovery Princess is Spotlight Bar, an imaginative show set in a vibrant bar atmosphere, where local storytellers transform their life experiences into song. For film lovers, Movies Under the Stars® is the place to go.

As an exclusive, open-air poolside amphitheatre, it shows feature films, concerts and sporting events, all under the beautiful night sky. There are also world-class musicians and entertainers, from the live singalongs at the piano bar and classical strings renditions to hilarious comedy stand-ups, jugglers and acrobatics. With entertainment to suit every taste, one thing is for sure; you’ll never get bored!

Dining

Across the Royal-Class ships, you’ll enjoy an impressive range of inclusive dining options for almost any taste or time of the day. There’s plenty to choose from at The World Fresh Marketplace, with international favourites and customised dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Meanwhile, the Salty Dog Grill and Slice Pizzeria will deliciously satisfy any burger or pizza cravings. For a snack any time of the day or night, the International Café is open for small bites and gourmet beverages 24/7.

Treat yourself to a meal at one of Discovery Princess’s speciality dining restaurants, and you won’t be disappointed. The Chef’s Table Lumiere is a highlight. Dining here, you’ll be taken on an indulgent culinary journey, starting with champagne and hors d’oeuvres, before moving on to their extravagant multi-course dinner. You can also sample modern French bistro-style cuisine created by Chef Emmanuel Renaut at Bistro Sur La Mer or artisan pasta and family Italian classics at Sabatini’s.

Sports, swim and spa

Discovery Princess offers everything needed to re-energise, refresh and revitalise mind and body. Get your workout in at its state-of-the-art fitness centre, where you can participate in classes such as Pilates, Yoga or Body Sculpt Boot Camp or enjoy a game of basketball or volleyball on its multi-purpose court. When it’s time to relax, the Lotus Spa® offers a variety of luxurious treatments, including facials, aroma stone therapy massages, and detoxifying ocean wraps.

Or perhaps you’d rather chill out by the pool – there are several to choose from! Enjoy the impressive views of the infinity-style Wakeview pool and bar, or discover the two deep-tank pools linked by sunken, communal seating, exclusive to Sky Princess, Enchanted Princess and Discovery Princess.

Children’s Clubs

Like its sister Royal-Class ships, Discovery Princess provides thoughtfully designed, age-specific children’s clubs. Children ages 3-7 have a whimsical, forest-themed world to explore, filled with many fun and engaging activities, while 8–12-year-olds can enjoy games, dancing and creative competitions in the Lodge. Even teens will love to hang out in their very own Beach House, where they’ll find movie-viewing, hip hop dance classes and sports and video game tournaments.

Itineraries 

Discovery Princess is currently spending its time sailing around the USA and Canada, calling at some stunning destinations, including the Mexican Riviera, the Californian coast, Vancouver, Seattle and Washington.
