Currently under construction, Star Princess joins Sun Princess as the largest ships ever built for Princess at 175,500 tons and carrying 4,300 guests with more than 1,500 balconies and 29 restaurants and bars and 21 decks. Debuting 4 August 2025 in the Mediterranean, she shares the same ground breaking venue designs as Sun Princess, including The Dome, a cutting-edge top-deck entertainment space inspired by the tiered cliffs of Santorini, a next-level Piazza featuring a glass sphere and a ‘see it to believe it’ Princess Arena, that allows Princess to introduce innovative entertainment concepts. The ship will also usher a variety of new food and beverage concepts.
