Sun Princess Abort Inaugural Voyage From Barcelona


Princess Cruises and Fincantieri have mutually agreed to postpone the delivery of Sun Princess, the largest ship ever built in Italy and the first ship equipped with a revolutionary new platform developed exclusively for the Princess brand.

The postponement unfortunately resulted in the cancellation of the ship’s first ten-day voyage, originally scheduled to depart Barcelona on 8 February.

“We understand that this news is disappointing and we share this disappointment. We recognize the anticipation surrounding this cruise and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by this cancellation,” said John Padgett, President of Princess Cruises.

Full refund of fare

Guests who made their initial voyage reservation will receive a full refund of their cruise fare along with any additional onboard amenities purchased in advance, as well as a 50% Future Cruise Credit (FCC) that can be used toward a future voyage Princess*. Guests will also receive up to $200 per person for change fees associated with air travel plans.

Princess also protects travel agent commissions.

*The FCC must be booked by November 30, 2024 and set sail by December 31, 2025.
