Second Sphere Class Ship Finally Named

Recommended Posts

Debuting in August 2025, Princess Cruises' second Sphere Class ship finally has a name. As a sister ship to Sun Princess, the 175,500-ton ship has been named Star Princess. Star Princess will be another LNG-powered ship with better fuel efficiency than most. The new ship will highlight an exclusive show onboard, Cirque Eloize to be performed in The Dome. Who is excited for Star Princess?

Woohoo! It sounds like a great change to the entertainment program.

This ship is one of the last, if not the last, of Carnival Corp new build program. Carnival has announced there are no new ships for 2026 and may restart building 1 or 2 ships a year after that. It's financially driven, we will need to enjoy the fleet they have across all their brands.

@kefthecruiser I completely agree. This sort of Cirque Eloize entertainment is going to drive a crowd. Some evening performances are easy to skip, but this experience surely isn't one of those. I didn't realize Carnival Corporation wasn't going to be having any new ships built in 2026. Thanks for sharing that insight. All of the Carnival-owned brands have been expanding at such a rapid rate considering all of the craziness they have experienced over the past few years. The Dome is going to be such an amazing work of art onboard! It will be featured in the Piazza Atrium onboard both sister ships, Star Princess and Sun Princess.
