The newest ship to join the Princess Cruises fleet, Sun Princess, will be setting sail for the Mediterranean for her inaugural season, including a series of cruises from Southampton.

The Sun Princess inaugural voyage is already on sale, a 10-night Grand Mediterranean sailing that departs on 8 February 2024, as well as two round-trip voyages from Rome. Booking for the remainder of the inaugural season will be available for booking from 9 November 2022.

A series of 10-night itineraries will be available on board the new Princess Cruises ship, visiting popular ports throughout the eastern and western Mediterranean. This is in addition to seven-night cruises departing from Barcelona, Rome or Athens, enabling guests to combine the itineraries to create 14 or 21-night voyages.

Sun Princess will be docked in Southampton on 22 and 23 September 2024

Eithne Williamson, Vice-President of Princess Cruises UK and Europe, said: “Welcoming the beautiful Sun Princess to Southampton in 2024 will mark a very special visit, as it will be the first time a brand-new ship in the Princess fleet has called into a UK port during a maiden season in more than 10 years.”

Sun Princess is currently undergoing construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy and will become the largest Princess Cruises ship ever built.
