The first luxury cruise liner built specifically for the China market, Majestic Princess, arrived in Shanghai on Sunday and an inaugural ceremony was held at Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal.

Representatives from the Shanghai government, travel agencies and news media also took part in the ceremony.


“The maiden voyage of Majestic Princess means a lot for Carnival and Princess Cruises,” said Arnold W. Donald, CEO of the Carnival Corporation. “We believe all Chinese families will have lifelong memories from their holidays aboard Majestic Princess.”
