New Sun Princess to Join Princess Cruises Fleet in 2024
Luxury Cruise Guide
20 September, 2022
Princess Cruises has revealed details of its new ship, Sun Princess, which is under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard. Slated to debut in early 2024, the 175,500-ton vessel is the brand’s largest ship ever and can accommodate over 4,000 guests.
The cruise line also announced that Sun Princess will sail an inaugural spring/summer season of Mediterranean cruises followed by Western and Eastern Caribbean voyages out of Port Everglades, Florida in the fall of 2024. The ship’s first three voyages are available for bookings.
Sun Princess embraces Italian heritage by featuring a suspended glass Piazza in the center and the Dome, a top-deck entertainment space inspired by the terraces of Santorini. The ship will also feature the exclusive Princess Medallion.
The Piazza spans three stories, offering guests an outward looking suspended space with comfortable seating and areas to enjoy ocean views in every direction. An LED screen is also showcased in the center of the Piazza that can be moved and configured to deliver live entertainment programming. Adjacent to the Piazza Atrium will be a new coffee shop, Coffee Currents, Bellini’s Cocktail Bar, alongside Princess favorites such as Crooners Bar and Alfredo’s Pizzeria.
The multi-level covered deck and glass-enclosed Dome features an indoor-outdoor pool and unique water feature during the day. At night, the pool becomes a stage, and the Dome transforms into an entertainment venue with a South Beach vibe, lighting effects and the ability to deliver aerial performances.
The 21-deck Sun Princess features 2,157 total staterooms, including 50 suites and 100 connecting rooms; all balcony accommodations feature an in-room sofa. Launching exclusively on Sun Princess will be a new level of suite accommodations, the Signature Collection. Besides stateroom amenities, Signature Collection suites include access to the Signature Restaurant, Signature Lounge and Signature Sun Deck, a private area of the Sanctuary.
Club Class accommodations onboard Sun Princess and all Princess ships will now be called Reserve Collection, which are the best-located mini-suite staterooms. Within the Reserve Collection will be Reserve Collection Cabana Rooms–resort-style staterooms that offer a balcony and private cabana. These accommodations also include access to the Reserve Collection Restaurant.
Sun Princess is part of Carnival Corporation’s green cruising focus and is one of 11 new ships in the corporate fleet powered by LNG fuel technology. This is the third ship to be honored with the “Sun Princess” name, adding to the legacy of the first ship sailing from 1974 to 1988 and the second ship sailing from 1995 to 2020. At that time, it had the largest number of balcony cabins, besides the cruise line’s first 24-hour café.
More information about Sun Princess will be announced over the coming months. A second Sphere-class ship is also on order, slated to be delivered by Fincantieri in spring 2025.
