Interior Cabin
Majestic Princess

Majestic Princess is the newest sister ship to Royal Princess and Regal Princess, offering the Princess experience and signature favourites you've always loved, plus exciting new features with a Chinese flair. She is also the first ship in the fleet to feature a brand-new Sea witch livery design at her bow with hair flowing toward the stern.

Royal Princess

A welcoming ambience and innovative offerings create the perfect way to see the world.

On every Princess ship, you'll find so many ways to play, day or night. Explore The Shops of Princess, celebrate cultures at our Festivals of the World or learn a new talent — our onboard activities will keep you engaged every moment of your cruise vacation.

The cabins:

Interior - These staterooms are the perfect place to recharge your batteries. The most affordable option, featuring two twin beds or a queen-size bed. Other amenities include a refrigerator, hair dryer, TV, closet and bathroom with shower.

Balcony - This impressive stateroom offers the added indulgence of a balcony and gives you more space than a standard stateroom. Enjoy your own private outdoor space with a table, two chairs, and a relaxing view of the inspiring scenery surrounding you, whether a beautiful sunset over the ocean or a new city to explore. It’s also perfect to enjoy cocktails before dinner or a leisurely breakfast.

Mini-suite - Choose a luxurious Mini-Suite with balcony which is substantially larger than a Balcony stateroom and receive a complimentary welcome glass of bubbly. Mini-Suites include a separate sitting area with sofa bed and two flat-panel televisions. For families or groups needing a little extra space, Mini-Suites offer an appealing and affordable option.

Suite - Surrounding you with deluxe accommodations, a spacious Suite with balcony includes all the amenities of a Club Class Mini-Suite, plus incredible premiums. Enjoy more living space, a sofa bed and separate seating areas, and wonderfully enhanced amenities that range from priority embarkation and disembarkation to a complimentary mini-bar setup in suite and so much more.

Our experienced Travel Advisors can provide you with information on all available cabins and which is best for you.
