Princess Cruises Completes Multi-million-pound Ship Refit

“Sun Princess”

Princess Cruises has completed the refurbishment of its 2,000-passenger ship, following a two-week refit in Singapore.

The multi-million-pound enhancements include a redesigned youth center, new premium staterooms and upgraded onboard shopping.

“We are thrilled to provide guests sailing the regions with our newest onboard features that enhance their cruise experience while sailing this beautiful part of the world,” Princess Cruises President Jan Swartz said in an announcement.

According to an announcement, the refit comprises:

  • A Camp Discovery Youth Center for cruisers aged 3-17, created in partnership with the Discovery Channel. Catering to specific age groups, children and teens can make new friends and participate in activities specially designed to help them discover, play and fuel creativity,
  • Club class mini suites: Sun Princess now features club class mini suites, Princess Cruises’ premium stateroom category that includes VIP amenities, exclusive dining and priority embarkation and disembarkation,
  • Enhanced Boutiques: A number of enhancements and upgrades have been made to the onboard shops including the introduction of an Effy Fine Jewelry boutique and luxury designer brands including Burberry, Coach, Longchamp and Guess,
  • The line’s signature logo on the ship’s bow.

The enhancements continue Princess’ “Come Back New Promise” campaign, with £330 million being invested across the line’s fleet of 17 ships.

Sun Princess is currently sailing in Southeast Asia before returning to Australia for the 2019 winter season. Her itineraries begin on the western coast before transitioning to the eastern coast and New Zealand.

Furthermore, Princess Cruises has recently confirmed that in 2020, Sun Princess will be docked in Yokohama Port and serve as a “floating hotel” during the Tokyo Olympics to help support local accommodation. The vessel will be chartered by a Japan travel agency for 19 days.
