3.) Majestic Princess – Princess Cruises
Launch Date: 2017 Passengers: 3,560

The Majestic Princess has little wonders hidden throughout, from the movie nights out by the pool to the hedge gardens in the Hollywood Bar there are small escapes hidden for you to find.
Whilst onboard don’t forget to enjoy some of the exquisite cuisine in two new specialty restaurants, prepared by Michelin star chefs Richard Chen and Emmanuel Renaut.

2.) Celebrity EDGE – Celebrity Cruises
Launch Date: 2018 Passengers: 2,908
“The ship designed to leave the future behind.”
The Celebrity EDGE takes a surprising approach on modern luxury cruising which might just catch on industry wide. Onboard almost all cruise ships operating today, bars and pool areas are all designed to look inward instead of outward at the ocean views. Celebrity EDGE challenges this tradition with colossal sweeping views and multi story open spaces that put the focus back on the ocean itself.
Celebrity Cruises and their team of A-list designers have delivered a unique cruising experience with outward facing spaces like their multi story villas and new Infinite Veranda stateroom design. The Infinite Veranda transforms your living space into a balcony with a press of a button, taking the classic cabin design to the EDGE…
Perhaps the most ambitious feature onboard the EDGE is the Magic Carpet, the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform that reaches heights of 13 stories above sea level. Basically it is a giant bar jutting out on the side of the ship, constantly changing levels like an elevator, the highlight of Celebrity’s new outward-facing vision.

The Big Kahuna…. our number 1 ship also happens to be the largest cruise ship in the world right now measuring in at a staggering 362 metres long and 65.5 metres wide. The Symphony made it to the top of the list because it is literally a floating city, who doesn’t want to holiday on a floating city!
