Sun Princess Revitalisation
Sun Princess has completed an extensive $30 million revitalisation to refurbish and enhance the Princess Cruises vessel. After entering dry dock for a two-week makeover, Sun Princess is emerging with a sparkling new atrium with Princess' signature International Cafe, a new sushi and seafood venue, an updated Horizon Court buffet, and a refreshed Lotus Spa.
Sun Princess has also received new interior furnishings and finishes, fresh hull paint and exterior refurbishment and new contemporary and Asian-style touches. "Sun Princess debuted our first Japan-based cruise program earlier this year, and now the vessel will benefit from its time there with some new Asian-inspired elements as well as signature Princess features," said Princess Cruises Executive Vice President, Jan Swartz.
As part of the revitalisation, the ship's new atrium will now feature Princess' signature International Cafe, with expanded seating and new décor. A new dining venue, Kai Sushi, which will serve up sushi and seafood, has been added. The Horizon Court received a contemporary update to its food service areas and action stations, to allow for live a la carte cooking, as well as a special pastry shop and coffee bar, refreshed décor and expanded seating. A sophisticated space designed especially for the ship's Sterling Steakhouse experience has also been added. The ship's top deck hamburger grill has been transformed into an al fresco barbeque venue and the ice cream bar will now also feature speciality coffee options. The Lotus Spa has also received a thorough makeover, with new décor.
The makeover has come just in time for Sun Princess to set sail on a season of Asia and Australia cruises, before beginning a second season of Japan-based cruising in April 2014.
These new features add to Sun Princess' already impressive array of dining and entertainment options, plus signature innovations such as the popular Movies Under the Stars poolside theatre and The Sanctuary, an exclusive top-deck retreat. The 77,000-ton Sun Princess carries 2,022 passengers and features a high number of staterooms with private balconies, a steakhouse, pizzeria, boutiques, and internet cafe among other amenities.
