Princess Cruises Takes Delivery Of New Sun Princess

Princess Cruises has taken delivery of Sun Princess, an entirely new ship platform designed by Fincantieri exclusively for the Princess brand. 

The 175,500-ton, 4,300-guest Sun Princess is the most impressive luxurious and stunning Love Boat ever created, offering an array of exciting new entertainment and activities, as well as sensational staterooms and suites across a broad spectrum of categories. With the most balconies on any Princess ship, guests can take in the sunshine and crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean and Caribbean from the comfort of their stateroom. The Dome, a transformational entertainment venue inspired by the terraces of Santorini, is the perfect place to relax and the Arena! is an evolution and the most technologically advanced Princess Theater design.

Sun Princess is the largest ship built in Italy to date, as well as the first LNG cruise ship ever built by Fincantieri and the first dual-fuel ship powered primarily by LNG to enter the Princess fleet. Liquefied natural gas is the most advanced, mature, scalable and commercially viable fuel technology for the maritime industry. It is also considered one of the cleanest fossil fuels as it reduces greenhouse gas emissions and almost completely eliminates other air emissions and particulate matter.

Sun Princess is the first in Princess Cruises’ Sphere class, which includes a sister ship scheduled for delivery in 2025. Each ship accommodates approximately 4,300 people and is based on a next-generation platform design.

The ship will remain alongside in the shipyard to allow for additional technical work to ensure an outstanding vacation is delivered. Accordingly, the cruise line regrettably is cancelling the February 18 voyage. Sun Princess now will make its maiden voyage on February 28 from Rome.
