Designs and Key Features Unveiled
 For Newest Ship in the Growing Fleet
Princess Cruises today unveiled
 designs and announced key features of Majestic Princess, the
 newest and most luxurious ship in
 the global fleet. Departing April 4,
 Majestic Princess will sail on her
 inaugural voyage, a five-day Adriatic
 Sea cruise roundtrip from Rome with
 stops in Kotor and Corfu.
Following her maiden cruise, Majestic
 Princess will tour Europe, offering
 guests a chance to experience
 the ship on 7, 14, 21 and 28 day cruises departing from Rome, Barcelona or Athens. A repositioning
 voyage will depart Barcelona on May 14, 2017, visiting Dubai and Singapore before arriving in
 Shanghai, her new home. Majestic Princess will begin her first cruise from its home-port in Shanghai 
on July 11, 2017, carrying 3,560 guests to a variety of destinations in Japan and Korea.

"Over the past 50 years, we have developed a mastery of global travel, delivering a truly international
 cruise vacation experience to our guests," said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president. "With the debut
 of Majestic Princess, first in Europe and then in China, we invite guests to indulge in a world-class
 experience that allows them to completely relax, unwind and ultimately 'come back new.'"

Majestic Princess, a sister cruise ship to Regal Princess and Royal Princess, will offer its guests
 a variety of enticing features and experiences, including:

Global Cuisine – Exceptional culinary offerings are a pillar of the Princess guest experience, designed
 and executed by masterfully trained chefs from France, Italy, the United States, Australia, China and
 Japan, among others. They create memorable dining experiences inspired by the more than 360 
exotic ports of call visited by the line annually. This is why Princess Cruises has been named "Best 
Cruise Line for Food Lovers" by Food & Wine Magazine.

Popular culinary offerings from sister ships Royal Princess and Regal Princess will be aboard Majestic
 Princess including:
  • The exclusive Chef's Table Lumiere, a unique and engaging dining experience personally
  •  hosted by our Princess Executive Chef which includes a private galley tour and a multicourse
  •  dinner served at a grand custom-designed table where guests are surrounded by a glimmering
  •  curtain of light.
  • The award-winning Crown Grill & Bar, an American steakhouse, preparing top-quality cuts of
  •  beef, chops and seafood in an open-kitchen served in a classically elegant restaurant setting.
  • Alfredo's, named after Princess Cruises' award-winning Master Chef Alfredo Marzi, offers a
  •  selection of classic Italian and signature Neapolitan-style pizzas (voted "Best Pizza at Sea"),
  •  along with baked pasta dishes and specialty appetizers and desserts.
Two new specialty restaurants will be introduced onboard Majestic Princess. They include:
  • Harmony, created in partnership with Chef Richard Chen formerly of Wynn Las Vegas "Wing
  •  Lei" (the first Chinese restaurant in North America awarded a Michelin star). Harmony will
  •  feature haute Chinese cuisine paired with pristine ocean views and modern décor, serving
  •  Chef Chen's interpretation of classic Cantonese dishes.
  • Le Bistrot, located in the lively atrium, offers casual French home-style dining with a modern
  •  twist. Harkening back to an authentic Parisian bistrot, guests will enjoy traditional Escargots

  •  tourtes and French Patisseries.
To top it off, there will also be a wide selection of all-day gastronomy in the World Fresh Marketplace
 (Horizon Court buffet on other ships), where guests can taste flavors from diverse food stations
 around the world ranging from Mediterranean dishes, a pasta specialty counter, colorful farmer's
 market salads and fresh fruits and a new "East Meets West" street food specialty counter. The
 Bakery inside the World Fresh Marketplace will serve Western, European and Asian pastries and
Modern & Stylish Cruise Ship Design – Influenced by fashion, art and history, the interior designs
 of Majestic Princess present a sophisticated and stylish visual experience representative of traveling
 the world. Exquisite designs use metal, glass and inlaid wood through-out to welcome guests who 
appreciate the elegance and glamour of premium cruising. European marble, mosaic tile floors,
 polished woods and sumptuous fabrics are featured onboard the ship. Plush custom-designed
 carpets in the guest corridors feature floral motifs that represent an Asian-inspired beauty and
 grace. Hand tufted area rugs also mirror floral motifs located at the entrances to the main dining rooms.

Modern & Stylish Stateroom Design – More than 80 percent of Majestic Princess' staterooms include
 a private balcony. All staterooms feature the new Princess Luxury bed, featuring a custom-made
 mattress developed by Dr. Michael Breus, the board-certified sleep expert recognized as "The Sleep
 Doctor." The bed also includes luxury linens designed by Candice Olson, the Canadian design-star
 of the hit HGTV shows "Candice Tells All" and "Divine Design." The superb bedding system is
 exclusively designed for the Princess SLEEP program.

World-Class Entertainment – The first two shows to be seen on Majestic Princess will be "Fiera"
 and "Fantastic Journey" both have been met with enthusiastic acclaim by international audiences
 across the Princess fleet.  These musical shows feature a world-class cast of singers and dancers
 along with some of the most elaborate production numbers, costumes and advanced multimedia
 stage technology ever produced at sea.  It also features Movies Under the Stars on the largest
 outdoor screen at sea, as well as Water Color Fantasy, a cruise industry first presenting a dazzling
 water and light show at sea.

Onboard Experience – Onboard Majestic Princess, guests will also experience the signature SeaWalk,
 the industry's first glass floor walkway at sea, and SeaView Bar featuring "flair" bartending with the
 best views at sea.  The Piazza Atrium, the central focal point of the ship features live entertainment
 throughout the day and evening.  It is a grand spectacle surrounded by The Shops of Princess,
