Majestic Princess: Sailings in China, Australia & the South Pacific
Majestic Princess, which debuted in April 2017, sails itineraries in Asia and the South Pacific out of Sydney. She is a sister ship to Princess's most recent ships, Regal Princess and Royal Princess, although several tweaks have been made to the public spaces, activities on board and dining venues to accommodate the large number of Chinese passengers on board.
Carrying about 3,600 guests, Majestic Princess offers several new features with a Chinese flair, and she is also the first ship in the fleet to feature a brand-new Seawitch livery design at her bow with hair flowing toward the stern.
