Sun Princess has always been a cruise ship industry pioneer. When she was christened, she set the bar for offering a high percentage of balcony staterooms from which to view the exotic destinations of the world. Today, Sun Princess is based in Australia year-round, sailing mainly from Sydney and Fremantle, and has been recently updated to include our most popular onboard venues, including The Sanctuary, a serene haven just for adults, and our inviting Movies Under the Stars.
