Sun Princess receives Asia-inspired elements

Australian cruisers will be the first to experience a refurbished and Asia-inspired Sun Princess, when the ship completes its AU$30 million transformation later this month.

Entering drydock at the Sembawang shipyard in Singapore, the ship will be fitted with a new dining venue, Kai Sushi, the atrium will receive a new signature International Café and the Horizon Court buffet will feature food service areas and action stations for live a la carte cooking as well as a pastry shop, coffee bar and expanded seating.

The Lotus Spa will also receive new décor, while the top deck hamburger grill will be transformed into an al fresco barbeque venue and the ice cream bar will add specialty coffee options.

Asia-inspired adjustments to the ship come after the ship’s debut in Japan earlier this year.

Once the ship leaves drydock, Sun Princess will set sail on a season of cruises from Australia, before beginning a second season of Japan-based cruising in April 2014.
