Princess Cruises has lifted the curtain on their next generation of sailing, introducing to the world, the new Sun Princess

Sun Princess will house more than 4000 guests, with panoramic views, bustling venues, high tech entertainment and multi-floor dining all part of the package.

Currently being constructed at the famous Fincantieri shipyard and set to meet the ocean in 2024, the giant 175,500 ship is Princess’s biggest ship ever.

The inaugural season will feature a range of Mediterranean itineraries, with the first three voyages set to be available for bookings from *am AEST Friday September 16 for Elite guests and by midnight for others.

John Padgett, Princess Cruises president said: “Sun Princess is a new and bespoke ship platform, designed to simultaneously embrace Princess heritage while boldly pressing into the future with iconic, elegant and pure lines unique to our brand.

“A show-stopping, first-of-its-kind Dome on the top deck and suspended glass Piazza in the centre of Sun Princess offer innovative designs showcasing expansive ocean views for incredible opportunities to connect with the sea.”

What you’ll get

Princess will embrace Italian heritage with its spectacular three-story Piazza, with spectacular architecture and LED lighting creating a unique and impressive centrefold and activities hub for the ship.

Also aboard will be on The Dome, modelled on the iconic terraces of Santorini, this multi-level deck and enclosed dome structure will be the first of its kind on a cruise ship. The Dome will be an indoor and outdoor pool by day, and then a sweeping stage by night with all encompassing entertainment, offering a South Beach vibe with innovative lighting and aerial performance capabilities. 

New suites and staterooms

Amongst the 2157 staterooms on board, you can expect the spectacular. Much of the opulence will be found in the Signature Collection, a new level of suite accommodations. Offering exclusive access to a restaurant, lounge and sun deck in a private area of the sanctuary. 

Club Class accommodations will now be called the Reserve Collection, which will be the best location for those looking to purchase mini-suite staterooms, and will also offer access to an exclusive restaurant.

Sustainability is also core to the design, with Sun Princess being a part of Carnival Corporation’s green cruising focus and will be powered by LNG fuel.
