When built in 1995, the 77,441-ton, 1,950-passenger Sun Princess was one of the largest ships in the world, taking 2,015 guests. Previously the Princess ship was in a fleet that was a subsidiary of P&O Princess Cruises. Her sister ships are the Sea Princess, Dawn Princess and the former Ocean Princess (now P&O’s Oceana). Refurbished in 2015, a US$30 million refit, she takes 2,000 guests now in 1,011 cabins, in 27 categories, but only 400 have verandas. Most staterooms are 145-sq.foot insides rooms (396). The 14-day dry April dock in Singapore added the new Princess Luxury Bed to cabins and Curtis Stone’s Share restaurant. SHARE is an elegant restaurant designed by this award-winning chef and New York Times best-selling author. The Kai Sushi was transformed into Kai Seafood Bar. In came a new Amuleto Café, an NZ Natural ice cream outlet and the Legends sports bar, showing tennis, weekly AFL and NRL football matches on LED screens.This is a very popular ship, as is the Oceana at P&O, sailing routes in Australia, the Pacific and a World Cruise. 19 cabins are the wheelchair accessible. The largest cabins aboard Sun Princess are the Balcony Suites (470 ft2), but compared to modern ships what used to be the largest ship at sea can now be considered a smaller, more homely ship that its guests love and return to.
