Sun Princess


The Sun Princess is perfect for those of us who like the grand 90 style cruise ships, when elegance was understated, when ships were not theme parks or resorts. There is choice between personal choice or conventional dining alternatives, as well as a number of unique port expeditions and trips. The Caribbean itineraries provide water sports as part of the package. The disabled facilities here are also excellent. The Sun Princess is also home to the huge outdoor LED screen that is among the largest.

The Sun Princess is not actually a mega ship in the best sense of the term, there are no rock climbing walls or ice skating. The cuisine choices are also limited; there are not many world cuisine choices. The ship also demands formal dress code when you are dining. There is also not much party opportunities and to meet singles.

Thus the Sun princess is essentially a ship for the middle aged cruisers who need a relaxing experience with great ambience and good facilities.

Sun Princess – Cruise experience . . .

The Sun Princess was launched in the year 1995, and was the largest cruise ship in the world at the time. The ship at 77, 000 tons garnered a lot of attention not only because of its size but the perfectly designed interiors. The exteriors were not bad at all either, and although the 1 s t position with respect to size was lost in a short while, the beauty of the ship was admired as a classic. There were sisters made of the ship – Ocean, dawn, Sea Princesses. The Ocean and the Sea have been shifted to Europe.

The Sun Princess is a truly remarkable ship, and the best quality that is cited by cruise critics worldwide is that the ship has the versatility that makes for a relaxed time for the calm, and enough vibrancy to give the active a great time as well. Although mid class, it has to be noticed that there is more than enough space for all manner of facilities as well as for entertainment. The ships perfectly designed interiors have been appreciated a lot, as there is no crowding at almost every location, the use of space is optimized to the highest level.
