The inaugural ambassadors for Majestic Princess have been announced. Yao Ming and his wife, Ye Li will name the purpose-built ship for the Chinese market at a ceremony held in China.

The inaugural festivities will take place aboard Majestic Princess in Shanghai on July 9, as the culmination of weeks of celebrations, upholding maritime traditions, as well as featuring traditional Chinese, contemporary Chinese, and western-inspired cultural performances that took place between Rome and Xiamen.
