Princess Cruises celebrated the arrival of its newest ship —the first specifically designed for the Chinese cruise market.

The cruise line received the Majestic Princess, the third ship in its Royal Princess class, during a ceremony held March 30 at the Monfalcone shipyard in Italy.

The ship’s inaugural cruise take place today, April 4, 2017 from Italy. Majestic Princess will homeport in Shanghai this summer and exclusively serve the Chinese market year-round.

The 143,700-gross-ton ship is the sister of Royal Princess and Regal Princess. This is Princess’ first ship to be loaded with new features aimed at Chinese cruisers. The ship is also the first to bear the cruise line’s redesigned logo on the bow. The ship accommodates 3,560 passengers.

Majestic Princess offers a multi-story atrium that serves as the social hub of the ship. The ship’s over-the-ocean SeaWalk is a top-deck glass-bottomed walkway extending 28 feet beyond the edge of the ship. For entertainment, guests can enjoy the Princess Live! interactive studio or a Chef’s Table Lumiere, a private dining experience that surrounds diners in a curtain of light.
