Navigating the Seas of Change: The Sun Princess® Sailing Saga Continues and Princess takes Delivery of the Cruise Ship

Ahoy, fellow cruisers! Today, we embark on a journey through the latest chapter of the Sun Princess® sailing saga. As Princess Cruises takes delivery of its newest vessel, we find ourselves at the cusp of a new era in luxury cruising. With promises of unparalleled experiences and breathtaking adventures, the Sun Princess® heralds a new beginning for cruise enthusiasts worldwide, but unfortunately this launch has been with a few glitches. But as we set our sights on the horizon, Princess has finally taken delivery of the newest member of the fleet.

Princess Cruises Introduces the Sun Princess®: A Beacon of Luxury

In a monumental moment for Princess Cruises, the Sun Princess® emerges as a beacon of luxury and sophistication. Designed by Fincantieri exclusively for the Princess brand, this 175,500-gross-ton, 4,300-guest vessel is the most impressive and luxurious Love Boat ever created. Boasting the most balconies on any Princess ship, guests can soak in the sunshine and crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean and Caribbean from the comfort of their staterooms. The Sun Princess® offers a plethora of exciting new entertainment and activities, along with sensational staterooms and suites, and new restaurants across a broad spectrum of categories. From the Dome, a transformational entertainment venue inspired by the terraces of Santorini, to the Arena!, the most technologically advanced Princess Theater design, every aspect of the Sun Princess® promises an unforgettable journey.

Delays and Disappointments: The Cancelled Voyage

Despite the anticipation surrounding the Sun Princess®, additional technical work is required to ensure an outstanding vacation experience for all passengers. Regrettably, Princess Cruises has announced the cancellation of the February 18th voyage and the earlier February 8th voyage. Sun Princess now will make its maiden voyage on February 28th from Rome.

Additionally, Princess is protecting travel agent commissions.

Conclusion: Looking Ahead to Smooth Sailing

Despite the bumps along the way, Princess Cruises' commitment to guest satisfaction and experience shines through.
