Once the Discovery Princess embarks from Los Angeles and starts heading north to Vancouver, British Columbia, in Canada, it doesn’t take long for guests to find their way to the top deck to enjoy the warm California sun, spectacular views, and fun ambiance.
This upper deck is a favorite spot during the cruise to enjoy the pool and the ocean breeze. You’ll also find numerous food and beverage options to satisfy every taste.
Family time is great, but you might want to indulge in a private getaway at The Sanctuary, an exclusive, adults-only retreat on the ship. This tranquil oasis offers signature beverages, light meals, a bubbling spa, and relaxing massages from attentive stewards.
