Princess Cruises has revealed the name of its second Sphere Class cruise ship, introducing Star Princess on Friday.
The vessel, which is currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy, will sail an inaugural season of Mediterranean voyages when she debuts in August 2025. Star Princess cruises go on sale with the larger Europe 2025 program release on June 1, 2023.
At 175,500 tons and carrying 4,300 guests, Star Princess joins Sun Princess as the largest ships ever built for the cruise line. Ground-breaking spaces aboard Star Princess will include The Dome, a transformational entertainment venue inspired by the terraces of Santorini; the next-level Piazza featuring a glass sphere; the Princess Arena, a configurable, technologically-advanced main theater and a dining room positioned aft of the ship to deliver stunning views.
Future guests can also look forward to expanded accommodation options, including the new Reserve and Signature Collections, new food and beverage concepts, an expanded casino, a two-story Lotus Spa and entertainment headlined by Cirque Éloize.
“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,” Princess Cruises President John Padgett said in a statement. “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.”
Star Princess, which is the second in the Princess fleet to be powered by LNG fuel technology, is scheduled to debut on August 4, 2025, sailing a nine-day Inaugural Italy & Greece roundtrip cruise from Rome (Civitavecchia), featuring stops in Corfu, Kotor, Mykonos, Santorini and Naples (for Capri and Pompeii). That voyage will be followed by a variety of nine- and 10-day cruises sailing from Rome, Athens or Trieste (Venice).
