Discovery Princess, the latest ship to join the Princess Cruises fleet, has set sail on her maiden voyage from the Port of Los Angeles. As she heads to the Mexican Riviera, she marks the 15th vessel to join the cruise line.
Among the highlights are the largest balconies at sea in the entire Princess Cruises fleet, giving guests 270-degree views of their surroundings. Entertainment includes Broadway-style production shows such as Spotlight Bar which will connect guests with local storytellers who share tales of their lives through song.
A total of 25 bars and restaurants are available on board, including Bistro Sur La Mer by three-Michelin-star-chef Emmanuel Renaut, Crown Grill Steakhouse and Bar, Crooners, The Salty Dog Gastropub and three main dining rooms.
Princess Cruises President John Padgett said: “Today we celebrate our newest ship, Discovery Princess, as she sets sail on her maiden voyage to the Mexican Riviera from the Port of Los Angeles – the same port our very first cruise departed from in 1965.
“Cruising is back and the elegant Discovery Princess showcases the many reasons why travellers should take a cruise now. We also recognize and applaud the ship’s company, who will work tirelessly to deliver memorable cruise vacations to all who sail on this magnificent cruise ship.”
Discovery Princess is the sixth and final Royal Class new build ship to join the fleet and will share the luxury and style of her sister ships.
