At Princess, we’re constantly evolving our onboard offering to provide new and unrivalled experiences, so we’re beyond excited to announce the brand-new Sanctuary Collection, where jaw-dropping accommodation meets luxurious facilities, bespoke service and exclusive perks.

Our Sanctuary Collection staterooms replace those of the former Signature Collection and Reserve Collection on Sun Princess, and comprise 80 Sanctuary Collection Suites, 123 Mini-Suites and 12 Premium Deluxe Balconies. Star Princess, debuting in 2025, is set to feature a similar selection, too.

Guests of Sanctuary Collection staterooms will have exclusive access to the spa-inspired Sanctuary Club, located on the top deck of Sun Princess and accessed via a private lift. The adults-only area is the place to sunbathe on sumptuous lounge furniture, kick back in a private cabana, take a dip in the pool or Jacuzzi, sip on exclusive drinks, enjoy afternoon tea and even indulge in an open-air massage. The Sanctuary Club also boasts its own exclusive programme of events, including sunrise yoga classes and sail-away cocktail receptions.

Guests will also have access to a private restaurant, Reserved, where you can dine from exclusive menus in a sleek, modern setting. And if you’ve plumped for a Sanctuary Suite, you’ll be able to visit the Suite Lounge, a fully staffed lounge area with floor-to-ceiling ocean views that’s the perfect spot for a morning coffee, afternoon read or pre-dinner aperitif.
