Princess Cruises has taken delivery of ‘Sun Princess’, a new ship platform designed by Fincantieri exclusively for the Carnival brand.

The 175,500  gt 4,300 pax ‘Sun Princess’ has remained alongside her berth in the shipyard to allow for additional technical work to be completed.

Accordingly, the cruise line has had to cancelled the 18th February voyage. ‘Sun Princes’s now will make her debut on 28th February from Rome (Civitavecchia).

Guests who were booked on the first voyage will receive a full refund of the cruise fare along with any additional on board services that were pre-purchased, as well as a 50% future cruise credit (FCC) that can be used on a future Princess voyage.

These must be booked by 30th November, 2024 and used by 31st December, 2025.

The cruise brand is also offering financial reimbursement for select travel costs for guests who have already arrived ahead of their sailing and for guests who have not yet started their travel, certain changes fees related to flights.

Princess said that it was also protecting travel agent commissions.
