Discover the newest cruise ship in the Princess fleet! This Medallion Class ship offers a variety of onboard experiences that are sure to delight.

Guests can enjoy 270-degree sweeping views from the largest balcony at sea, unwind in ultimate comfort at The Sanctuary and indulge their senses with world-class dining. Plus, the ship’s touchless Medallion experience enables staff to greet you by name and make personalized recommendations.

Comfort & Convenience

The Discovery Princess is one of the newest ships in the Princess fleet and spent the summer of 2022 sailing back and forth between Mexico and Alaska. It’s also the first ship in the fleet to feature the MedallionClass technology that enables many things to be done without using your cruise card.

Cabins are comfortable with all the basics included – high thread count sheets, a refrigerator, private bathrooms with showers and a large balcony. Standard Balcony cabins have Pullman beds while Deluxe and Premium Deluxe cabins have sofa beds. Obstructed view cabins will split opinions as some people love them while others don’t like seeing the lifeboats or bridge from their balcony.

Entertainment & Activities

Whether you’re looking for sunrise yoga or a karaoke night, Princess ships offer an array of nonstop activities. You’ll find enrichment programs led by destination specialists, naturalists and culinary experts aboard many cruises, too.

Designed from the ground up with Princess MedallionClass, Discovery Princess(sm) offers an array of innovative new experiences. Guests can take in 270-degree sweeping views from the largest balconies at sea, unwind in ultimate comfort at The Sanctuary and indulge their senses with world-class dining options.

Dining & Nightlife

McCool Travel Tip: Fresh ginger is served with sushi here and it’s a delightful touch. Among the ship’s other fine dining options are Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria, Ocean Terrace Seafood Bar and Bistro Sur La Mer. Reservations are recommended for these premium dining options.

The ship is outfitted with Princess Cruises’ MedallionClass technology which enables guests to use a small wearable device to make on demand dining, room service and other features. It also helps cabin mates locate one another and unlocks doors to their staterooms. The Vista Lounge hosts tribute bands and karaoke, while Take 5 is a jazz lounge with a dark speakeasy vibe.

Specialty Bars & Lounges

Revitalize body and soul in the state-of-the-art spa. Then relax by the pool or enjoy a show at one of the ship’s entertainment venues.

For-a-fee specialty restaurants on discovery princess include Crown Grill, a steakhouse venue with the same design accents as other Princess Cruise ships. This restaurant offers a multicourse menu including appetizers like polenta fries with goat cheese and grilled asparagus, soup or salad, handmade pasta and premium meats.

A more casual option is Gigi’s Pizzeria, which serves pizza and other quick bites day and night. There’s also a poolside Salty Dog Grill and the Mix Bar, which provides classic cruise drinks like pina coladas.

Pools & Hot Tubs

The ship’s four pools and ten hot tubs provide plenty of opportunities to soak up the sun. The Retreat Pool on Deck 17 is a quiet adult-only oasis with a medium-sized pool and loungers. Order drinks and snacks using OceanNow on your Medallion and they’ll be delivered to you while you’re relaxing poolside.

Chocolate has long been known as an aphrodisiac, and on Discovery Princess it’s available in many forms — from desserts to the Lotus Spa’s chocolate body treatment. Also, all dining venues have hand-washing sinks or sanitizer dispensers near the entrances to encourage guests to wash their hands before entering. Princess also has additional sanitation measures, including sanitizing frequently touched surfaces throughout the ship.


Despite being a fairly new cruise ship, Discovery Princess doesn’t have as many suites as some of the larger vessels operated by her competitors. That said, the line offers a couple of suite types that include some extra perks such as reserved seating at the theatre and a deluxe telescope for stargazing.

Club Class Mini-Suites, located near the front corners of Decks 9 to 12, sleep up to four. They’re similar in layout to a typical balcony cabin, but also offer a separate sitting area. And they have a bigger balcony than the average balcony cabin. See the video above for a look at one.
