Princess Cruises’ sixth Royal-Class cruise ship will be christened Discovery Princess, and will be the cruise line’s first-ever vessel to be based on the West Coast, sailing out of Los Angeles.
Designed from the ground up as a Princess Medallion Class ship, the 143,700-ton, 3,660-passenger Discovery Princess is currently under construction at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. The ship will feature an evolution of the design platform used for the cruise line’s previous Royal-Class ships.
Discovery Princess is scheduled to debut on November 3, 2021, on a seven-day Mediterranean & Aegean inaugural cruise from Rome (Civitavecchia) to Athens.
With cruise vacations open for sale from October 8, 2019, Discovery Princess will sail on destination-rich itineraries to the Mediterranean, Caribbean and South America before arriving in Los Angeles for her West Coast debut, sailing to Mexico and the California Coast.
The worldwide itineraries offered onboard Discovery Princess to Europe, the Caribbean, South America, Mexico and the California Coast for the 2021/2022 cruise season, is also Princess Cruises’ largest-ever inaugural launch programme.
The inaugural season of Discovery Princess includes 30 departures on 21 unique itineraries to more than 50 destinations in 23 countries.
