Scheduled to depart for its maiden voyage on April 4, Majestic Princess will take part in a five-day Adriatic Sea roundtrip cruise from Rome with stops in Kotor, Montenegro, and Corfu, Greece.

After the Majestic Princess’ inaugural trip, the ship will tour Europe on seven-, 14-, 21- and 28-day cruises departing from Rome, Barcelona or Athens.

The Majestic Princess ship has gained mainstream attention thanks in part to a wide variety of features and experiences. Firstly, the cuisine on the vessel will be a mix of the top foods in the world, prepared by chefs from France, Italy, the United States, Australia, China and Japan.

In addition, the ship will also feature two new specialty restaurants including “Harmony” and “Le Bistrot,” both of which will offer specialty dishes and cater to the needs of each individual passenger.
