Sun Princess – Debuting in 2024


That’s right, Princess Cruises’ newest, biggest and boldest ship, Sun Princess, is due to enter service in 2024 and today, we’re going to take a closer look at what her guests can expect.

Sun Princess will begin her life at sea by sailing from Barcelona and Rome on a selection of 10-day Grand Mediterranean voyages, followed by a selection of 7-day cruises that take in the beauty of Spain, France, Greece, and Italy.

She’s the first of her kind and will offer accommodations for up to 4,300 guests. Alongside new features and facilities, she’ll also offer some Princess guest favourites! Let’s have a look inside…

Dining options

Alfredo’s Pizzeria – This charming favourite that has been named “Best Pizza at Sea” will once again have an open kitchen design, allowing guests to watch as the chefs create pizza by hand and serve them straight out of the oven. New to the kitchen is a professional, open-mouth oven that reaches 968 degrees, allowing chefs to create a truly authentic contemporary Neapolitan pizza.

Crown Grill – A favourite of Princess guests who enjoy a perfectly grilled steak. Crown Grill on Sun Princess takes this iconic space and modernises it with a classic steakhouse feel woven with modern touches. Inviting leather booths, circular seating and modern artwork custom designed for this restaurant will welcome guests in for an unforgettable dining experience. Plus, guests can enjoy views of their food being prepared in the largest show galley on a Princess ship.

Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria – Serving a modern, casual but elegant Italian dining experience, the newly imagined Sabatini’s unique handmade pasta courses will be prepared fresh daily. A crisp, tailored, geometric design that also will feature a pasta room for guests to marvel at the pasta-making process. The restaurant is designed with intimate bistro-style nooks and a dramatic circular main room.
