Sun Princess, the largest cruise ship ever built by Princess Cruises, will make her U.S. début in October 2024, offering seven- and fourteen-day Caribbean cruises from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The ship is the first of the line’s new Sphere class and will winter at Port Everglades following a season of Mediterranean and Europe voyages when it debuts in February 2024.

Sun Princess Caribbean voyages will strike the ideal balance between incredible Caribbean islands and tranquil days at sea, allowing guests to enjoy all that Sun Princess has to offer, such as captivating entertainment in state-of-the-art venues, spacious relaxation areas with breathtaking views, and the line’s largest-ever casino.

  • 7-day Eastern Caribbean with St. Thomas, including an evening in San Juan and a visit to our private island resort Princess Cays.

John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises, remarked, “We are thrilled about the expansion of the Princess fleet and know that homeporting Sun Princess in Ft. Lauderdale offers a convenient option for guests to explore the most elevated experience ever from the Love Boat. The warmth, pristine beauty, and crystal-clear waters found throughout the Caribbean form an idyllic backdrop for our iconic new ship and create the perfect setting for Princess guests to enjoy the stunning views and playful adventure that are magnified on this beautiful, iconic new ship.”

The 175,500-ton, 4,300-passenger Sun Princess, currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy, will feature an array of thrilling new dining, entertainment, and activity options, as well as luxurious staterooms and suites across a wide range of categories.

With the most balconies of any Princess ship, passengers can enjoy the Caribbean’s sunshine and crystal-clear waters from the convenience of their cabins. The Dome, a transformative entertainment venue inspired by the terraces of Santorini, is the ideal place to unwind, while the three-story Horizons Dining Room is certain to generate conversation.

Sun Princess will also feature the exclusive Princess Medallion, which will extend Princess’ leadership position in providing exceptional personalised experiences indicative of small ships with the finest large ship amenities.
