When the brand new Sun Princess starts sailing in early 2024, it’ll be home to a range of brand new restaurants and culinary experiences. A host of Princess favourites have also been revitalised with an imaginative touch.

John Padgett, Princess Cruises president said: “Outstanding food and drink at exceptional value are a cornerstone of the Princess experience. Sun Princess elevates the entire portfolio of offers and wraps them in restaurants, bars and sundecks that reveal stunning views, ocean vistas and sunshine, ice and wildlife.

“Our chefs will serve up vibrant flavours, pour perfectly crafted cocktails and provide personalised service that is second to none.”
