Sun Princess

The Sun Princess is a frequent visitor to Auckland, this cruising season. Here she lies at Princes Wharf, last Wednesday. The Port of Auckland is a popular destination for cruise ships, with over 90 movements listed on the Ports of Auckland website.

The Sun Princess carries 1,950 passengers and has more than 400 balcony staterooms.

According to wikipedia, “the Sun class is a class of cruise ships operated primarily by Princess Cruises, a subsidiary of Carnival. The class was designed and its component vessels constructed by Fincantieri Cantieri Navali Italiani in Italy. The first Sun class vessel, Sun Princess, entered service in 1995 and the last, Ocean Princess, entered service in the year 2000.”
