The maximum number of passengers on this ship is 3,560 and the inaugural cruise for the Majestic Princess was April 4th 2017.

Princess has created The Enclave, which is the largest thermal suite on a Princess ship with a hydro-therapy pool, cascading rain shower and therapeutic air jets. You can relax on heated stone beds, soothing water beds or indulge in Turkish-style steam baths.

With departures out of Auckland and Australia there is likely to be a cruise for everyone.

P & O Fleet to expand and gain a Medallion Class ship

Golden Princess will be moving to P & O in 2020 which will mean the addition of an Ocean Medallion ship to the P & O fleet. Golden Princess will be introducing the Ocean Medallion device and platform from November 2018 and this technology will be transferring with the ship when she moves over to P & O in 2020.


Medallion Class is a new class of Princess cruise with the addition of the Ocean Medallion which is a free wearable device that will create an extraordinary on board experience. The Medallion is sent to you prior to your cruise and this helps expedite the check-in process, it will unlock your cabin door, pay for everything on board the ship and enable the crew on board to easily see your preferences and they can serve you better.

The Medallion can be worn as a wristband, pendant or you can just keep it in your pocket.
