Review of Sun Princess

Launched in 1995, Sun Princess is the 1st Sun-class Princess Cruises ship, together with Dawn and Sea. The ship cost US $300 million to build and was last refurbished in April 2016.

History - construction & ownership

Princess Cruises is a cruise line headquartered in Santa Clarita CA in the U.S. and incorporated in Bermuda. The company, which was previously a subsidiary of P&O Princess Cruises, is now one of the ten cruise ship brands owned by the largest cruise ship operator in the world Carnival Corporation & plc. Princess accounts for around 19% share of its revenue and is part of Holland America Group, controlling the three Carnival brands based on the U.S. West Coast. The line's ships sail worldwide and are marketed to American and international travelers. Princess Cruises company was made famous by the TV series "The Love Boat", in which Pacific Princess was featured. The brand new Royal Princess became line's flagship in May 2013, and a year later was joined by a new sister-ship, Regal Princess.

When the 77,441-ton, 1,950-passenger Sun Princess debuted in 1995, she was not only the largest cruise liner of Princess but also the industry's biggest-ever cruise ship. Together with the other Sun-class ships which followed - like Sea Princess, Dawn Princess and the former Ocean Princess (now P&O's Oceana) - the vessel was outfitted with innovative features and facilities, which created a revolutionary effect on the industry, and served as a precursor to Princess' later establishment of Grand-class ships. Despite the relaxed atmosphere, Sun Princess has been a bit bypassed by more recent Princess innovations. Personal Choice Dining is unveiled long after the liner was designed and so the concept of versatility is not as smoothly incorporated into the dining venue scenario. Standard rooms, while effectively appointed, might be a narrow fit for a couple, and the 400 verandas are less than abundant when compared to newer vessels in the fleet. 

Sun Princess underwent a US$30 million refit from April 5-18, 2016. The 14-day dry dock in Singapore added the new Princess Luxury Bed to cabins and Curtis Stone's Share restaurant. Kai Sushi was transformed into Kai Seafood Bar. Other additions include Amuleto Café, NZ Natural ice cream outlet and Legends sports bar, showing tennis, weekly AFL and NRL football matches on LED screens.

Cruise itinerary program

Sun Princess itinerary program is based on Australia and New Zealand cruises, departing from Sydney and Fremantle cruise ports. 

Sun Princess

Cabins

Most Sun Princess staterooms are 145-sq.foot insides rooms (396). Almost 80% of ship's outside accommodations have private balcony views. There are a total of 1011 staterooms in 27 categories. 19 are the wheelchair accessible rooms. The largest aboard Sun Princess are the Balcony Suites (470 ft2).

Dining options - Food & Drinks

Sun Princess food options are generally good and guests have enough variety to be satisfied, without having to pay for specialty dining. Vegetarian selections are excellent, desserts - superb. A good selection of healthy items is provided every night. Waiters are friendly and helpful. The Regency Dining Room offers breakfast and lunch, but most passengers opt for the casual Horizon Court buffet or fresh baked pizzas at the Italian Verdi's pizzeria. The popular dining venue, Horizon Court, is open 24 hours a day. Horizon Court is situated one deck above ship's swimming area. The buffet is tiny by new-ship standards, but offers excellent breakfast options from 4 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., along with abundance of fruits and breads, and European specialties. Terrace Grill offers BBQ, hotdogs, salads and chips by the pool.

The 'British Invasion' features hits from the 1960s from UK bands like The Rolling Stones, The Who and The Beatles. The Princess is a steeply sloped palladium theatre featuring excellent sight lines and theatre seating with small stands for drinks.
