Stop the presses! The newest Princess Cruise ship has been announced, and we’ve got all the juicy details. If you want to be on trend with your cruise vacation, you’ll need to hop aboard Discovery Princess – it set sail on its maiden voyage in March 2022.
But hold onto your life jackets, folks! Sun Princess is hot on Discovery’s heels and will become the newest addition to the line when it starts sailing in February 2024. Brace yourselves for an even newer and more up-to-date experience on that one!
Of course, if you don’t care about being trendy or having access to fresh restaurants, bars, attractions or cabins…well then this whole article is probably useless to you. But we digress.
If newness is what floats your boat (pun intended), then stick with vessels built within the last decade or so. You won’t find as many optionsSponsored Product for wining and dining on older ships from the late ’90s/early ’00s era unless munching a stale sandwich at a lukewarm buffet while sitting in plastic patio chairs rocks your nautical socks off.
Today’s rankings are brought to you courtesy of raw-tonnage-measurement enthusiasts who refuse anything less than transparency in their ranking metrics (we put them right under fans of first editions).
Starting with numero uno: Discovery Princess tops our list as the newest ship available from Princess Cruises; followed by Enchanted Princess and Sky Princess — both started setting sail just a little over two years ago — while Majestic princess arrived back in 2017 which feels like forever-ago by now.
Regal-princess seems ancient despite her freshman status one would think she came out sometime during George Washington’s presidency but nope she actually debuted way back in 2014! On par timeline wise with Royal princess unveiled during Obama’s reign also part of class-of-vessels six-ship royal series that began coming out in 2013.
Coming back to fresher air, Sun Princess like the first flower of spring is set to make its debut February 2024 as a part of Sphere-class series followed by Star Princess arriving sometime in year 2025! These are what we call truly novel experiences for all you thrill-seekers and novelty connoiseurs – with access to private restaurants, lounges and sun decks that won’t be cluttered with common folk!
If none of this is making any sense to you or seems boring (unlikely but possible) — we’ve got room for one more paragraph! Older ships can be as much as thirty percent smaller than newer vessels, which might sound like a bit of a letdown. However they often offer up more intimate feels plus are perfect for those who prefer non-crowded excursions – keep Coral Princess & Island Princess on your radar. But if supersized vessel entertainment floats your proverbial boat – sky princess, majestic princess or enchanted princess seem perfect optionsSponsored Product!
Still not convinced? We get it — how exciting can boats really be anyway? But if there’s one thing we know about people who love to travel (and yes cruises count as travel), it’s that they’re always looking for their next adventure. So whether you choose Discovery Princess or something else entirely…just remember that getting out there and exploring the world is what really matters.
