In early 2024, the Princess Cruises fleet will welcome their next-generation and biggest-ever cruise ship, Sun Princess that will carry more than 4,000 passengers. Sun Princess will also be the first ship in the fleet to be powered by Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) - this cleaner burning fuel will significantly reduce air emissions and marine gasoil to minimize our environmental footprint.
Sun Princess, the line's 16th ship, will launch on February 8, 2024 and will debut as the first of two all-new Sphere-class vessels. Sun Princess has a total of 2,157 cabins - including 50 suites and 100 connecting rooms - and will have more outdoor balcony space than any other ship in the Princess fleet. New features debuting on Sun Princess include the Signature Collection, a new level of suite accommodation where guests will have exclusive access to the Signature Restaurant, Signature Lounge and Signature Sun Deck, a private area of the adult-only retreat, The Sanctuary.
Located on the ship's top decks, Park19 is also set to make its debu t aboard Sun Princess. Park19 will feature nine outdoor family-friendly activities spread out on decks 19, 20 and 21. One of Park19's highlights is Sea Breeze, which is set to become the first roll glider at sea. The glass-enclosed dome is multilevel AND multipurpose: pool by sunlight, stage for shows by starlight - it features acrobatic performances created in partnership with the renowned Cirque Éloize.
Sun Princess will enter service on February 8, 2024 and the maiden voyage will be a 10-night Grand Mediterranean itinerary departing on February 28, 2024. She will sail the Western Mediterranean for the 2024 spring/summer season and then reposition in the U.S. for a fall season of seven and 14-day Western and Eastern Caribbean voyages out of Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale), Florida.
