Sun Princess cruise ship guide

0

Based in Australia 365 days a year, Sun Princess offers trips around Asia, the coast of Australia and the surrounding islands in style. A high percentage of her rooms come with a balcony, adding that extra touch of class to an already exciting trip.

But it’s not all about excitement – during your time on board you’ll also have the chance to take it easy and let the stresses and strains of day-to-day life float away.

Check out the trips Cruise 1st currently has to offer on board Sun Princess for 2013 and 2014.

Things to do on Sun Princess

There’s something for everyone here, whether you want to keep busy or just chill out (or a bit of both!).

The Lotus Spa, for example, is a great place to go when you want to take it easy – with a range of treatments, pools and hot tubs.

Fitness fanatics have a great gym and fitness area to enjoy, including weights and cardio equipment, sports courts and shuffleboard.

And if you’re feeling cultured, perhaps you’ll enjoy the art gallery and library & writing room.

There’s plenty of top-class entertainment, too – such as the Princess Theatre which puts on a number of great shows, and the Vista Show Lounge. Or if you fancy a drink, there are a number of bars and lounges to quench your thirst.

There are even plenty of activities for the kids to enjoy – including Princess Pelicans (for ages 3 to 7), Shockwaves (ages 8 to 12) and Remix (ages 13-17).

As for dining options, there’s something to cater for all budgets. One night you might fancy one of the several traditional restaurants, while another time you might feel like one of the more upmarket speciality restaurants. Or if you just want to kick back, there are several casual dining options too.

Accommodation

As you’d expect, there are rooms for all budgets here. From the basic interior rooms (which look anything but basic), to ocean view staterooms, all the way up to deluxe suites, you can expect a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

All rooms come with a TV, fridge, spacious closet and at least a queen-sized bed. Suites are much more spacious and offer a number of exclusive benefits, such as walk-in closets, priority reservations for a number of on-board amenities (including restaurants), a mini-bar and priority check-in/check-out.
