   February 5, 2023 ,   Cruise Industry

Princess Cruises revealed a first glimpse of the most contemporary/state-of-the-art designs imaged yet aboard Sun Princess - the line's newest and biggest ship due to debut in February 2024.

The Horizons Dining Room is a first for Princess and introduces a stunning 3-story dining venue. The newly envisioned space is open/flexible and features dining options to suit every mood. Wake views/natural light highlight a sculpture that spans decks 6-7-8. The 3 decks each have their own personalities and offer different dining experiences.

The Princess Arena Theater boasts the most technologically advanced Princess Theater design. Upon entering, passengers are drawn to a stunning visual above the central stage. A radical ceiling accentuates the in-the-round configuration of the Arena with softly curved walls alluding to the movement of the tide. With moveable seats and a capacity of 1000+ people, 3 configurations maximize sight lines.

Additional signature favorites with new designs and decor scheduled to debut on Sun Princess in early 2024 include:

Alfredo's Pizzeria (named "Best Pizza at Sea") has an open kitchen design, allowing passengers to watch as the chefs create pizza by hand/serve them straight out of the oven. New to the kitchen is the professional, open-mouth oven reaching 968 degrees and allowing chefs to create a truly authentic contemporary Neapolitan pizza.

Princess Casino is the fleet's largest in both size/number of gaming positions. Positioned in the Piazza, it gives guests easy access to betting games. The spacious floorplan ensures comfort and entertainment, with 200+ of the newest/most popular slots and video poker games.

Crown Grill is an iconic space with a classic steakhouse feel. Circular seating, modern artwork, and inviting leather booths welcome guests in. Passengers can enjoy views of the food being prepared in the fleet's biggest show galley/kitchen.

Sabatini's Italian Trattoria serves a modern and casual but stylish Italian dining experience. It appeals to families with handmade pasta courses. A crisp, geometric design also features a pasta room for vacationers to marvel at the pasta-making process. The venue is designed with a dramatic circular main room and intimate bistro-style nooks.

Princess Live! combines the design elements of Princess Live! and Explorer's Lounge. Guests enjoy participatory activities like trivia, game shows, and the daily Wake Show. Luxurious textures/materials are featured on a mixture of comfortable loose/fixed lounge seating with an inviting semi-open facade, full beverage service, and a large LED screen on stage. Passengers can easily move from Princess Live! and enjoy a meal/cocktail with close proximity to restaurants/cocktail lounges, bridging an integration of entertainment and bar concepts.

The Shops of Princess (shopping complex midship on decks 7-8) consists of 5 retail stores. Modern, stylish boutiques connect fluidly and feature interactive experiences. Passengers can shop easily from space to space offering Princess logo merchandise, a new bazaar with destination-specific selections, a lifestyle boutique, plus jewelry, cosmetics fragrances, watches, and a modern art gallery.
