Princess Cruises has revealed the name of its second Sphere-class ship - Star Princess, scheduled to debut in August 2025.
"There's much to be admired about Star Princess - her sleek, eye-catching design, spacious interiors, and of course, the remarkable views of the sea and sky, just like the features found on Sun Princess that have prompted cruise lovers to snap up inaugural year bookings," said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises.
"We've carefully designed these ships to feel familiar to our guests yet significantly advanced with lots of exceptional new and expanded experiences to embrace and explore."
The ship is currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy and will be one of the largest ships ever built for the cruise line along with the Sun Princess. The Star Princess will accommodate 4,300 guests and is 20% bigger than all the other Princess ships.
In honour of its 40th year of sailing in the Mediterranean, Princess Cruises will feature two of its newest, state-of-the-art, and grandest ships -- Star Princess and Sun Princess -- in the region during the 2025 cruise season.
The Star Princess will enter service in August 4, 2025, sailing a nine-day Inaugural Italy and Greece roundtrip cruise from Rome (Civitavecchia), with calls in Corfu, Kotor, Mykonos, Santorini and Naples. This will be followed by a series of nine- and 10-day cruises sailing from Rome, Athens or Trieste (Venice). Star Princess cruises go on sale starting June 1.
The innovative architectural designs of the Sphere-class ships revolve around a massive glass sphere (the "Dome") that illuminates the huge Piazza atrium. The Piazza will offer dining and shopping experiences for passengers aboard the Star Princess and Sun Princess.
