Three stories, an elegant design, multicourse meals guests rave about and a different experience for each level. Plus, specialty restaurants Crown Grill steakhouse and Sabatini Italian Trattoria; as well as the Eatery (buffet style dining.)



Entertainment & Onboard Activities
The entertainment offerings on board the Sun Princess are just as innovative and thoughtfully designed as the ship itself. In fact, we're transforming the future of entertainment not just at sea, but anywhere. Our belief is that entertainment should always feel new, exciting, and keep you on your toes with spaces and experiences that you won't find anywhere else.

The Dome
This glass-enclosed dome is multilevel AND multipurpose: pool by sunlight, stage

for shows by starlight. It features acrobatic performances created in partnership

with the renowned Cirque Éloize.

Air travel, if required, is on your own and can be purchased through Princess Cruises’ EZ Air program. The fares are competitive, flexible and payment is not due until cruise final payment.
