Sun Princess

Sun Princess is Princess Cruise Line’s newest ship. The ship is currently in construction in Italy and will be the cruise lines largest ship.

Princess is not saying why the ship will be delayed.

Sun Princess is a 175,500 gross ton ship. The ship will initially offer European cruises before moving to Fort Lauderdale for Fall and Winter Caribbean Cruises.

Inaugural Voyage Canceled

Princess Cruises formally cancelled the inaugural voyage from Barcelona on February 8, 2024. The sailing was to be a 10-night sailing from Barcelona to Rome.

Princess is offering a full refund for the cruise fare as well as pre-purchased onboard expenses. The cruise line is giving all the guests a 50% future cruise credit as well.

The cruise line will also reimburse up to $200 in airline change fees to guests booked on the sailing.

Princess notified travel agents and guests this week about the cancellation in a press release.

The sailing for February 18, 2024 from Rome to Barcelona will sail as scheduled.

New Experiences

Sun Princess has some awesome new experiences.

I previously wrote about Spellbound a new experience on the ship. You can read about that here.

In addition, Princess has a new partnership with Butcher Block for famous steaks and food options onboard. You can read about that here.

Onboard, Princess is debuting a round theater and many more cool experiences.


Hopefully guests will be able to rebook the cancelled sailing and make use of the 50% discount on a future sailing.

I am looking forward to checking out Sun Princess in December, 2024 for a Caribbean Sailing.

Are you sailing on Sun Princess?
