For those who like to cruise on big ships, there’s always something that draws them there. For some people it’s the Casino. In fact, by gambling while on a cruise you can earn discounts on future cruises and sometimes even free cruises! I have plenty of friends and clients of Scott and Thomas Travel who travel the world for free or discounted due to their casino spend. Just like Vegas, cruise companies want you to spend money and reward their best guests. Now, gambling fans can get excited as Princess’ newest cruise ship will bring one of the largest casinos to oceans, the largest ever for Princess Cruises on the brand new 4,300 guest Sun Princess.
Sun Princess Casino
The largest casino ever built by Princess Cruises is ready to invite the masses on the Sun Princess. The newest and largest ship ever brigs some flashy new toys. The large casino is located on Deck 8 is adjacent to the bustling Piazza. The Sun Princess Piazza is meant to be the heartbeat of the ship. The Piazza on Sun Princess reflects an exciting evolution, surrounded by a multi-tiered sphere of glass offering expansive views as well as a wide selection of entertainment every voyage. Here guests can continue to enjoy beloved musical acts and performances, as well as favorite game shows and an elevated Champagne Waterfall event. Plus with the casino right next door, it will draw guests in.
The Princess Casino brings 50 percent more space and 30 percent more machines than other Princess Cruise line Royal Class ships, such as the Enchanted Princess or new Discovery Princess. Guests can enjoy the all new casino and the Sun Princess for the first time in Feb 2024. The casino is quite large at 9,000-square-foot! The ship’s casino will also features high 10′ foot ceilings making the space feel open and larger. Overall the ship will be home to 227 slot machines and 13 live table games. From the high ceilings to the spacious floorplan, this is really going to be a world-class gaming and entertainment complex on the water.
With over 200 of the newest and most popular slots and video poker games, the Princess Casino will feature live table games offering progressive jackpots, as well as a variety of other games Princess players have come to enjoy. Included in the expanded casino will be a first-of-its-kind “Buffalo Zone” at sea—bringing these popular games by Aristocrat to the newest “Love Boat.”
“Casino lovers, high rollers or simply those wanting to try a hand during their vacation will be stunned by the new Princess Casino onboard Sun Princess,” said John Padgett, president of Princess. “Princess has embraced the casino experience and is proud to offer such exciting gaming surrounded by absolutely world-class dining and entertainment.”
The Sun Princess will have the newest and the most comfortable gaming seating available for both slot and table game players alike. New linked blackjack and poker table progressives will offer high value cash top awards and there will be a high-limit slot area with high-end seating. There will be new gaming experiences and celebrations through an interactive audio-visual experience throughout the casino. The tech is here at Sea!
Inaugural 2024 Sun Princess cruises to the Mediterranean, Europe and Caribbean are on sale now. The Sun Princess will debut in the Mediterranean in Feb 2024 before heading to the US and Caribbean later the same year. This Sun Princess ship is massive and beautiful. She will be the third ship to bear the name Sun princess, but the first to be powered by Liquefied natural gas. It’s also the largest ship ever built for Princess, hence why it also will be home to the largest casino in the fleet.
