Princess Cruises unveils next generation ship

The 175,500-ton vessel is scheduled to debut in 2024

Princess Cruises has revealed its largest ever ship ever with a capacity for more than 4,000 guests. 

Named Sun Princess, the vessel boasts innovative entertainment venues, multi-story dining rooms and next-level stateroom accommodations while staying true to the clean lines and design aesthetics for which the brand is known.

Currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard and scheduled to debut in early 2024, the 175,500-tonne vessel is the largest Princess ship ever constructed and features The Dome, a cutting-edge entertainment space inspired by the terraces of Santorini.

John Padgett, Princess Cruises president said: “Sun Princess is a new and bespoke ship platform, designed to simultaneously embrace Princess heritage while boldly pressing into the future with iconic, elegant and pure lines unique to our brand. 

"The show-stopping, first-of-its-kind Dome on the top deck and suspended glass Piazza in the centre of Sun Princess offer innovative designs showcasing expansive ocean views for incredible opportunities to connect with the sea.”

With 2,157 total staterooms, including 50 suites and 100 connecting rooms, the 21-deck Sun Princess features more outdoor balcony space than previous ships and all balcony accommodations have a sofa.

Also launching exclusively on Sun Princess will be a new level of suite accommodations called the Signature Collection. In addition to premium stateroom amenities, Signature Collection suites include access to the Signature Restaurant, Signature Lounge and Signature Sun Deck, a private area of the Sanctuary.


Sun Princess is part of Carnival Corporation’s green cruising focus and is one of 11 new ships in the corporate fleet powered by LNG fuel technology.

The inaugural season for Sun Princess begins in early 2024 with Mediterranean itineraries. More details about Sun Princess, including additional dining details, entertainment and onboard features, will be unveiled over the coming months.
