In addition to its record-breaking size, massive suites, and the geodesic dome that is a pool by day and stage by night, the new Princess ship, Sun Princess, will offer 29 new drinking and dining options.
Scheduled to debut in February 2024, the Sun Princess will be the first Sphere-class ship and the cruise operator’s largest vessel at 175,500 tons. The company promises an exceptional gustatory experience that combines value and quality.
According to John Padgett, the president of the California-based cruise line, “Outstanding food and drink at exceptional value are a cornerstone of the Princess experience. Our chefs will serve up vibrant flavors, pour perfectly crafted cocktails and provide personalized service that is second to none.”
