Overview

Summary

Sun Princess has always been a cruise ship industry pioneer. When she was christened, she set the bar for offering a high percentage of balcony staterooms from which to view the exotic destinations of the world. Today, Sun Princess is based in Australia year-round, sailing mainly from Sydney and Fremantle, and has been recently updated to include our most popular onboard venues, including The Sanctuary, a serene haven just for adults, and our inviting Movies Under the Stars.

Under 18

With Princess, young kids and teens have their own kind of fun – and their own place to hang out. Our youth and teen centers are fully equipped with everything from the latest video games and movies, to arts and crafts, fooseball tables, board games and jukeboxes. And for the littlest ones, activities like kids’ karaoke, pizza parties, pajama nights and more.

Kids & Teens

This ship’s activities run the age-appropriate gamut for those under 18 – from Princess Pelicans (ages 3 to 7), and Shockwaves (ages 8-12), to Remix (ages 13-17).
