“When I was asked what part of the ship I wanted to see during the christening of Discovery Princess in 2022, I chose the engine room and spent five hours learning about how the many complex systems onboard are able to efficiently—and almost invisibly—service thousands of customers’ needs. The scale of it is staggering, ” said Savage in a press release.
