Debuting early next year, Sun Princess is set to offer guests an unparalleled array of dining sensations onboard, including exciting concepts from world-renowned chef, Rudi Sodamin, plus a celebrity chef to be announced soon.
The ship will boast an astonishing selection of 29 new, signature dining and lounge options, with everything from savoury journeys and entertaining eats to sumptuous sips and satisfying snacks throughout the day.
Tempting new dining experiences range from the captivating theatre of Japanese Teppanyaki at Umai Teppanyaki and the innovative O’Malley’s Irish Pub, to a seafood nirvana at The Catch by Rudi. Additionally, The Promenade serves up fresh dough at Promenade Slice pizza, gourmet burgers, delicious hot dogs, beautifully baked bagels, and a sweet selection of ice cream.
Alongside the new, novelty additions, Sun Princess will still offer timeless Princess Cruises staples onboard: including the Crown Grill; Sabatini’s; Alfredo’s Pizzeria; and Kai Sushi.
“Outstanding food and drink at exceptional value are a cornerstone of the Princess experience. Sun Princess elevates the entire portfolio of offers and wraps them in restaurants, bars and sundecks that reveal stunning views, ocean vistas and sunshine, ice and wildlife. Our chefs will serve up vibrant flavours, pour perfectly crafted cocktails and provide personalised service that is second to none.”
John Padgett, Princess Cruises president
The three-story Horizons Dining Room also promises to elevate the traditional main dining experience for guests onboard Sun Princess, with each level (from deck 6 to deck 8) having its own personality- offering alternative dining experiences and varied formality settings. Here, menus range from Smoked Salmon Omelettes and Swedish Pancakes for breakfast, to Lamb Leg Provençale and Sautéed Redfish Caponata served at dinner.
Highlights of the exciting new culinary experiences onboard Sun Princess include…
Bellini’s Cocktail Bar
Found in the centre of the Piazza, this sparkling cocktail bar transports guests to a world of glitz and glamour, whether celebrating a special occasion or simply enjoying a night out with friends.

Open for lunch, dinner, and late-night fare, O’Malley’s serves up classic comfort food, including pub-style Fish & Chips, traditional Bangers & Mash, and home-cooked Shepherd’s Pie.
Sabatini’s can be found on deck 8 of Sun Princess, where guests can watch pasta being made fresh daily in a brand-new pasta room with sweeping circular windows. This Princess Cruises favourite features intimate bistro style design and a dramatic circular dining room.
On the tantalising menu, Creamy Burrata Caprese and Classic Beef Carpaccio feature alongside seafood dishes, primavera pasta and savoury meats. And if there’s still room for dessert, guests can choose from Italian favourites like Tiramisu, plus an array of pastries, tortes, and a ricotta cheesecake.
Exclusive to Sun Princess, Umai Teppanyaki is a feast for the senses, fusing top cuisine and showmanship on deck 8 of the ship. Here, highly skilled Teppanyaki masters use fiery skills to create a mesmerising display on a sizzling hot grill.
Guests have front row seats to the slicing and dicing action, while sipping signature drinks, such as the Wasabi Cocktail and Japanese Martini. The exciting three-act show begins with starters like Pork Belly Yakitori; progresses to entrées like Black Cod in soy reduction and Filet Mignon with Champagne Cognac flambé; and ends with the finale of a charming Chocolate Bento Box dessert and green tea ice cream.
