Sun Princess Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
Launched in 1995 as the first of Princess Cruises’ Sun-class ships, Sun Princess was a cruise industry pioneer. When she was christened, she set the bar for offering more staterooms with private balconies, which became a Princess signature. Sun Princess is now based in Australia year-round, sailing mainly from Sydney and Fremantle. The ship has been updated to include popular onboard venues, including The Sanctuary and Movies Under the Stars
Refined and graceful, Sun-class ships offer many of the choices attributed to larger Grand-class ships without sacrificing the smaller-ship atmosphere for which they're noted. The four-story atrium with a circular marble floor, stained-glass dome, and magnificent floating staircase are ideal settings for relaxation, people-watching, and making a grand entrance. Only Sea Princess sails Caribbean cruises; Sun and Dawn Princess are deployed in the South Pacific.
Onboard decor is a combination of neutrals and pastels, which are easy on the eyes after a sunny day ashore. The main public rooms are situated in a vertical arrangement on four lower decks, and, with the exception of promenade deck, cabins are forward and aft. In a nice design twist, the casino is somewhat isolated, and passengers aren't forced to use it as a passageway to reach dining rooms or the art deco main show lounge. Sea Princess also has an outdoor Movies Under the Stars LED screen.
