The Discovery Princess will now undergo its final touches before it celebrates its debut voyage in March 2022 with a seven-day itinerary from Los Angeles to the Mexican Riviera. It will sail the region through April, when it will begin the summer season sailing Alaska from Seattle.

The new ship is the sixth and last Royal-Class ship Princess will build, completing its Royal Class ship category. With a capacity for 3,660 guests, the premium ship will feature some of the largest balconies at sea with its Sky Suites.
