Sun Princess

Sun Princess

The starting signal for the next generation of cruises has been given! Sun Princess® is the first ship in our fleet to run on liquefied natural gas (LNG). This more environmentally friendly fuel significantly reduces pollutant emissions in the air and fuel consumption in the sea, minimizing our environmental footprint. Sun Princess® is the third ship to bear the name, joining the legacy of the first and second ships, which operated from 1974 to 1988 and from 1995 to 2020, respectively. Sun Princess featured the largest number of balcony staterooms at that time, as well as our first 24-hour café.

Enjoy more than 29 bars and restaurants and reside in one of 1,500 balcony staterooms (more than on any other Princess ship).
