Sun Princess primes 2019 cruises

SINGAPORE, 19 July 2018: Princess Cruises’ guests aboard the Sun Princess will now have access to the newest on-board enhancements following an extensive 14-day, multimillion dollar dry dock in Singapore.

It’s part of the line’s “Come Back New Promise” commitment that focuses on investing more than USD450 million across the global fleet.

From Singapore, Sun Princess is sailing the waters of Southeast Asia before returning to Australia for the 2019 winter season, where her itineraries begin on the west coast and then to east coast ports including New Zealand itineraries.

“Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand have always had an allure for travellers, and cruising is one of the best ways to explore this part of the world,” said Princess Cruises president Jan Swartz. “We are thrilled to provide guests sailing the regions with our newest on-board features that enhance their cruise experience.”

Sun Princess is the latest ship in the fleet to receive the livery design featuring the Princess Cruises logo, one of the most recognized brand logos in cruising. In addition to displaying the line’s signature logo on her bow, new and enhanced on-board offerings have been added on the ship.

Some of the new features include Club Class Mini-Suites, a new premium stateroom category featuring VIP amenities and exclusive dining.

A Camp Discovery Youth & Teen Centre for cruisers ages three to 17 has now been included on Sun Princess.

Duty-free shops offer an upgraded shopping experience with world famous brands.

Princess Cruises offers guests the opportunity to sail the waters of Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand in 2019 with ships sailing more than 80 departures on 20 itineraries to 64 destinations in 14 countries.

A highlight of the ship’s upcoming Australia winter season schedule includes a four-day Sun Princess Australia Getaway cruise departing 5 January, 2019. The itinerary features a maiden call to Moreton Island, located just off the Queensland coast and boasts to be one of the world’s largest sand islands.

Sun Princess guests sailing Southeast Asia will have a chance to witness the storied dragons of Komodo as the ship makes her only call to Indonesia’s Komodo Island during the 15-day sailing departing 23 December 2019.
