Set to debut in February 2024, guests onboard Sun Princess will be enchanted by the new Victorian-inspired experience, blending the captivating world of magic with the art of mixology. Performances by world-class magicians handpicked from across the globe will captivate audiences with awe-inspiring illusions and mesmerising acts to leave guests in complete wonder and disbelief.
Nestled behind a non-descript door onboard Sun Princess, inside the venue, guests will be able to enjoy incredible magic feats from talented magicians, hidden surprises in themed rooms, and theatrical cocktails delivered by extraordinary servers.
Spellbound will behold ornate décor that features magical artefacts, vintage curiosities, and interactive special effects. With this, the new experience is meticulously designed to capture the essence of Hollywood’s exclusive Magic Castle- where magic has left audiences astounded for decades.
“We are excited to introduce Spellbound by Magic Castle and take the art of magic around the world aboard the spectacular new Sun Princess. This collaboration with The Magic Castle™ takes entertainment into new dimensions with an extraordinary experience that combines the allure of magic with the thrill of cruising. Spellbound will become an iconic guest favourite on Sun Princess.”
John Padgett, President of Princess Cruises
The first encounter for guests as they enter Spellbound will be the essence of the authentic Magic Castle, including the Music Room with eclectic and mystical artefacts to stimulate curiosity. Here, guests will also meet the spirit of Isabella as she shares her stories of sailing onboard Sun Princess. The spectacular experience will also feature a vintage Parlor Bar, where Artemis the owl is revealed through interaction with skilled illusionists, before entering the intimate Spellbound Theater to witness mind-blowing close-up magic.
“We are bringing some of the most authentic aspects of The Magic Castle™ in Hollywood to Sun Princess, complete with incredible magicians and illusionists, so that Princess guests can experience a taste of the world class magic that is showcased nightly at the Magic Castle. It’s an exciting opportunity for guests to immerse themselves in a magical experience typically reserved exclusively for members and their guests.”
Erika Larsen, President of Magic Castle Enterprises
