Sun Princess, Princess Cruises’ incredible next-generation ship, will debut early next year, elevating culinary excellence at sea with an unparalleled array of dining sensations catering to every palate and desire, including exciting concepts from world-renowned chef Rudi Sodamin and a celebrity chef to be announced soon.
Delectable dishes can be found throughout the stunning new ship, with 29 contemporary and signature dining and lounge options offering everything from savoury journeys and entertaining eats to sumptuous drinks and satisfying snacks.
“Outstanding food and drink at an exceptional value are fundamental to the Princess experience.” “Sun Princess elevates the entire portfolio of offers by wrapping them in restaurants, bars, and sundecks that reveal stunning views, ocean vistas and sunshine, ice, and wildlife,” said Princess Cruises president John Padgett. “Our chefs will serve vibrant flavours, pour perfectly crafted cocktails and provide personalised service that is second to none.”
Guests on the latest Love Boat will be treated to an array of tempting new dining experiences, ranging from the captivating theatre of Japanese Teppanyaki at Umai Teppanyaki, where world-class cuisine intertwines with captivating performance, to a seafood nirvana at The Catch by Rudi from award-winning chef Rudi Sodamin. Meanwhile, The Promenade takes a different approach, offering customers delicious slices of Promendade Slice pizza, gourmet burgers, savoury hot dogs, freshly baked bagels, and tempting arrays of ice cream.
While the new additions promise novelty timeless favourites, Princess dishes remain essential to the Princess dining experience. From the refined elegance of the Crown Grill to the irresistible charm of Sabatini’s, to the delightful authenticity of Alfredo’s Pizzeria, the artful creations at Kai Sushi, the classic tunes at Crooners, the warm ambience of the WheelhouseBar, and the engaging performances at Princess Live!, these favourites continue to complement the dining tapestry that Sun Princess so expertly weaves for its guests.
