John Padgett, Princess Cruises President, said: “We’re delighted to welcome the illuminous and elegant Hannah Waddingham to serve as Godmother for our sensational new Sun Princess.

“Just like Sun Princess, she exudes sophistication, beauty and wonderment through her inspiring work as a talented and award-winning actress and performer.

“We’re truly honoured Hannah will officially name our most impressive, luxurious and stunning Love Boat ever created, and join an esteemed group of Princess Godparents including members of the Royal family.”

The new 177,882-tonne, 4,300-guest Sun Princess introduces an innovative new ship platform designed exclusively for Princess Cruises.

The ship officially started the inaugural cruise season on February 28, 2024, and currently is sailing a series of Mediterranean voyages before debuting in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, in October for the ship’s first Caribbean season.

Sun Princess debuts new eye-catching experience venues including The Dome, a groundbreaking geodesic, glass-enclosed structure at the top of the ship inspired by the terraces of Santorini.

The outward and suspended Sphere Atrium, the namesake of this new class of ship, takes the central Piazza hub of the ship into a new dimension.

Here guests are enveloped with expansive ocean views and an open concept, inspired to deliver the desired lifestyle of relaxed indoor and outdoor living.

Sun Princess offers an extraordinary cruise experience with not-to-be-missed culinary, entertainment and luxury accommodations, including:

30 inviting restaurant and bar venues with an unprecedented collection of celebrity collaborators, high-end ingredients and culinary experiences.

Debuting a three-storey dining room with endless aft views, inaugural menus have been created in collaboration with the Culinary Institute of America.

While retaining what guests love about Princess, the ship also features favourites like Crown Grill, Sabatini’s and Crooners with new design elements to impress.

The Princess Arena, the most technologically advanced theatre at sea, offering showstopping and original productions including performances in the round.

At night, The Dome astonishes audiences with acrobatic Cirque Éloize performances while the Piazza dazzles with a retractable stage and immersive Champagne Waterfall.

Sun Princess also features the cruise line’s largest casino, two-storey Lotus Spa, and an expanded retail environment with more than 200 premium brands.

The first-ever family activity zone, Park19, offers multi-generational fun from the top deck.

Within decks 19, 20 and 21, guests can experience everything from the Sea Breeze, a glider ride that offers panoramic views of the ocean and breathtaking ports of call to the Coastal Climb, an engaging climbing structure where guests can take in the gorgeous views.

There are diverse accommodations to suit every preference and more than 1,500 cabins with balcony views including exceptional suites and new Cabana Mini-Suites with extra space for secluded outdoor relaxation.

Sun Princess cruises to the Mediterranean and the Caribbean are on sale now. More ship details can be found at www.princess.com/sunprincess.
