Princess Cruises has added two 14-day “Grand Asia” voyages sailing between Shanghai and Singapore to its lineup on the fleet’s newest ship, Majestic Princess.
Available to guests throughout the world, these sailings will visit Japan, South Korea, Vietnam and Thailand in 2018, including spending more time ashore on the late night call in Hong Kong. The first voyage departs Shanghai on Feb. 25, 2018, with the second departing Singapore on March 11, 2018.
“Based on the response we received during Majestic Princess’ recent maiden cruise, we are confident she has redefined the international, luxury cruising experience,” said Jan Swartz, group president of Princess Cruises and Carnival Australia. “We are thrilled to open up the opportunity for other guests to experience our newest flagship in our fleet.”
Unique dining venues aboard Majestic include two new restaurant concepts, La Mer and Harmony.
La Mer offers an authentic, yet updated Parisian bistro experience with a fine dining dinner menu featuring authentic French cuisine made unique with modern twists by three Michelin-star chef Emmanuel Renaut. Harmony is a specialty restaurant featuring a Cantonese dinner menu designed by Michelin-star chef Richard Chen.
In addition, guests also have the opportunity to taste Gong Cha, the Chinese-style bubble milk tea, the authentic American steakhouse experience of Crown Grill familiar across the global fleet, Lobster Grill and Dim Sum Bar, as well as Alfredo’s featuring “The Best Pizza at Sea.”
On May 21, Majestic Princess will embark on the “Silk Road Sea Route,” a 49-day journey from Rome to Shanghai. During the voyage, the ship will visit a total of 22 ports including Athens, Dubai, Cochin, Singapore, Port Klang and Xiamen before arriving in Shanghai, its new homeport in China.
