About Princess Cruises

Princess Cruises has a successful history of more than 50 years. Once known from the original “Love Boat” TV-series, today Princess Cruises is renowned for a modern and luxurious way of travelling. Guests enjoy great service, first-class catering and interesting itineraries. Because of the international guests and English as the on board language we recommend travellers to have a fairly good command of the English language to make the cruise a pleasant experience.

The Ship

Commissioned in 1995 the “Sun Princess” offers space for up to 1.990 passengers at a length of 261m. In the late 90s of the 20th century she was chosen as the location for the US TV series “The Love Boat: The Next Wave”.


All staterooms are spacious, comfortably equipped and provide enough storage room for your luggage. Staterooms have a minimum size of approximately 14m². Many of the cabins on board feature a private balcony.

Atmosphere on board

On the Sun Princess you will enjoy amenities of a modern ocean liner. Many bars, lounges and public areas are one reason for her popularity – the crew’s individual and discreet service is another. Though most guests are English native speakers the travellers come from all over the world and create an international and classy atmosphere. This is reflected in the dress code: casual during the day and elegant in the evenings.

Food and Beverages

Gourmets will be delighted by the excellent food on board Princess Cruises’ ships. No matter if you dine in the included buffet and à la carte restaurants or in one of the specialty restaurants – quality and taste have a superior level. Guests may choose between the traditional early and late dining with assigned tables or “anytime dining”, where you are free to dine whenever it suites you best.

Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation

Princess Cruises is famous for their “movies under the stars” where the pool deck turns into a romantic cinema. Daily shows are entertaining the audience in the evening, the Casino invites all who love to play and several lounges and bars are ideal places to socialize. On the other hand the Sun Princess offers wonderful places to relax and enjoy calmness. The large Spa area is the perfect place to revitalize yourself. For all those who enjoy sports, the pools, the fitness center and the sports court are available.

Our Summary

If you search for a high quality cruise with excellent service and food and you are not looking for the latest and most thrilling attractions, you should seriously consider the Sun Princess.
