Sun Princess (Princess Cruises)
Sun Princess was the first of three Sun-class ships ordered by Princess Cruises. At the time, she was the largest cruise ship ever built and made history as the largest ship to sail under the Sydney Harbour Bridge with just 8ft clearance.
She primarily operates out of ports of Australia and regularly performs circumnavigations of New Zealand and occasional cruises to Whitsundays and Vanuatu. Her popularity with Australians has led to Princess Cruises keeping her in the Australian market year after year. In the winter months she also offers cruises to China from her homeport.
