Sea Princess

Sea Princess - along with sister ships Sun and Dawn - carries fewer guests than vessels of comparable size for a feeling of spacious luxury. And with more than 400 balcony staterooms, you can enjoy your own exclusive vista. Step aboard Sea Princess and prepare for a vacation that will dazzle your senses. From the four-story Atrium to tantalizing dining options, a variety of incredible entertainment choices, including Movies Under the Stars, you'll find a relaxing retreat that's as captivating as the places you'll visit on this grand vessel.
