Discovery Princess Sea Trials

Discovery Princess marks successful sea trials milestone

Princess Cruises has achieved a major milestone in preparation for the debut of its newest ship - Discovery Princess - with the completion of sea trials.

Discovery Princess set out to sea from the construction dock at Fincantieri Shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, and was put through her paces with a series of tests of the steering, navigation equipment and propulsion. After a successful five days of trials, Discovery Princess is now back in the shipyard for further exterior and interior finishing to prepare for her maiden seven-night Mexican Riviera cruise, sailing roundtrip from the Port of Los Angeles on March 27, 2022.

The 3,660-guest Discovery Princess is the sixth and final Royal-Class newbuild and shares all of the style and luxury of her sister ships - Enchanted Princess, Sky Princess, Majestic Princess, Regal Princess and Royal Princess. Guests can enjoy 270-degree views from the largest balconies at sea in the Sky Suites, unwind at The Sanctuary and indulge in some world-class dining options. 

In addition, Discovery Princess is the newest ship to join the fleet offering Princess MedallionClass holidays which begins with the Medallion, a 10 pence-sized, wearable device that enables everything from expedited contactless boarding to locating loved ones anywhere on the ship, as well as enhanced service like having whatever guests need, delivered directly to them, wherever they are on the ship. 

Discovery Princess will sail on a series of Mexican Riviera and California Coast voyages from March 27 - April 24, 2022, before heading up the Pacific coast to begin a season of seven-night Alaska cruises from Seattle.
