Your easiest holiday yet 

A cruise is one of the quickest and easiest ways to book a worry-free holiday. On board, all your needs are taken care of, from accommodation and food to entertainment – just pick the package that best suits your style. Travelling in a group and looking to elevate your experience? Groups of up to five people can stay in the suave stateroom and enjoy exclusive access to swish restaurants and private lounges, while a couple celebrating a Crystal anniversary might select the Signature Sky Suite for its panoramic views. 

Princess Plus® allows guests to enjoy more freedom and benefits, such as unlimited Wi-Fi, drinks, a juice bar, two premium desserts, fitness classes and casual dining. Princess Premier® takes things up a notch, including specialty dining, premium drinks, and unlimited fitness classes to keep your routine on point as well as a photo package to capture more once-in-a-lifetime memories and reserved theatre seating.

Princess MedallionClass® ensures your onboard experience is effortless with a wearable ‘Medallion’ device that facilitates keyless stateroom entry, locating loved ones anywhere on the ship, and enhanced services such as having whatever you need, delivered to you. Perhaps you hit the pool but forgot your sunscreen? No worries, Medallion Class® will have that coming right up. Desperate for a burger or beer but hate queuing? Order whatever your heart desires and it’ll be delivered to your table – wherever that may be.

Love this onboard experience 

The excitement starts the moment your ship leaves the port. Princess Cruises® Sail Away Celebrations invite guests to the main deck for a departure party on every voyage. Take in the receding city skyline and the freedom of the ocean as you sail away into the sunset with a cocktail (or bubbly!) in hand. 

Guests can choose from a variety of stateroom options that cater to every type of traveller. Friends travelling together can opt for a cosy interior twin stateroom, or couples seeking a romantic sojourn at sea can check into the mini-suite with a private balcony. Better yet, celebrate life’s milestones with your nearest and dearest by booking the Cabana Suites® on Sun Princess®. With exclusive deck access to an extra-large lounge space and unique outdoor furniture, these suites are the perfect place for recognising birthdays, achievements or anniversaries with family and friends while taking in the ocean breeze.

Fall in love with food 

On Sun Princess® spend your first day onboard soaking up the views from the Signature Sun Deck, or wander down to visit the Promenade to explore an array of al fresco dining options. At dusk, marvel at the architectural beauty and interior design of the ship at Horizons Dining Room, a three-storey venue with multi-course meals and a different gastronomic experience on each level. 

Share treasured stories with your family while sampling the menus at Crown Grill, Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria, The Eatery, Umai Teppanyaki and O’Malley Irish Pub then grab a sneaky late-night dessert at the Gelateria together. Couples can hide away in The Promenade, Good Spirits At Sea or Wheelhouse Bar for a romantic moment or arrange a private dining experience. 

Venture into The Piazza, a sphere of glass with sweeping ocean views and delectable venues such as Alfredo’s Pizzeria, International Cafe, Bellini’s Cocktail Bar, Coffee Currents and Crooners for a breakfast catch-up or jovial afternoon session with friends.

Romance and relaxation 

Spend your initial days at sea sinking into holiday mode. A romantic couples’ massage or ladies-only afternoon is best spent at the Lotus Spa where indulgent treatments and soothing therapies are on offer. Soak up some vitamin D on The Sanctuary alfresco sun deck with your friends with a cocktail in hand, or take a dip in the pool on the Sea View Terrace. The new Wake View Terrace features an infinity pool and is surrounded by poolside hangouts such as Lido Grill, Lido Slice by Alfredo’s, Lido Tacos, Lido Greens, Coffee & Cones and three bars.

Reignite your love for travel 

The Sun Princess® sails the Mediterranean and Caribbean, taking you to some of the world’s most alluring destinations with ease. A seven-night Mediterranean voyage could take your family from the Spanish Catalonian capital of Barcelona to Naples – the birthplace of pizza – in Italy.  Guests can go to sleep on the ship after a day exploring the largest French city on the Mediterranean coast, Marseille, then wake up in Florence where you can walk the Tuscan countryside, sample wine or visit the fishing villages of Lerici and Portovenere. 

Those seeking a romantic summer getaway might opt for the 10-night Greece and Italy sailing from Istanbul in Turkey to Rome in Italy, visiting a new idyllic destination almost every day. Visit Oia village for a wine tasting and cooking class in Santorini, or stop in at Sicily for a beach break or a tour of Messina.

World-class entertainment 

Squeeze the most out of your final cruising days by exploring the hidden treasures on board the Sun Princess®, the next generation of cruising. Kids are fully catered for with Firefly Park Kids Club, the Neon Grove Tweens Club and the Underground Teen Lounge. Families can explore Park19 together, a top-deck adventure space featuring a Sea Breeze Rollglider, the Net Ropes Course, Infinite Horizon Tilt Wall and the Coastal Climb, Splash Pad and Lookout. 

An arts and entertainment program is sure to surprise, inspire and delight all guests. The Dome transforms from a daytime pool area into a stage by night where acrobatic performances created in partnership with Cirque Éloize take place. The Victorian-theme Spellbound bar has magicians performing mind-bending tricks, and Princess Arena hosts an array of theatre performances with singing, dancing, acting and mesmerising sets. 

While travelling is about going on an adventure and experiencing new destinations and cultures, a voyage with Princess Cruises® is so much more than a journey, it’s a destination worth discovering itself. Princess Cruises® sails to 330 destinations worldwide including Australia, New Zealand, South Pacific, Japan, Alaska and Europe, with 16 ships in the fleet.
