Princess Cruises is celebrating the float out of its new next-generation ship, Sun Princess.
At a special ceremony at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy last week, Princess Cruises Hotel General Manager Simona Stumberger was selected as ‘Madrina’ to offer blessings and best wishes for the vessel. Having worked with Princess Cruises for nearly five years, “Simona is the ideal candidate to serve as Madrina of our newest ship, Sun Princess, because she embodies all the best qualities that our company has to offer – an unwavering commitment to service, hospitality and friendliness,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises.
The float out completes the first phase of construction for Sun Princess, which now transitions to focus on building the ship’s interiors. Captain Gennaro Arma will oversee the ship’s final stages of construction,
Upon completion, the 4,300-guest Sun Princess will offer an array of new dining, entertainment and activity offerings, as well as luxurious staterooms and suites across a broad spectrum of categories. It will feature never-before-seen spaces such as The Dome, a transformational entertainment venue inspired by the terraces of Santorini, the brand-iconic Piazza, and the three-storey Horizons Dining Room.
In addition, Sun Princess has been designed to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. It will be the first ship in the Princess fleet to be powered by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).
Inaugural 2024 Sun Princess cruises to the Mediterranean and Europe are now on sale.
