Princess Cruises Adds Adults-Only Sanctuary to 14 Ships
Princess Cruises marked the completion of a three-year project to add the line’s adults-only The Sanctuary on 14 ships (small ships Pacific Princess and Ocean Princess do not offer this feature). The Sanctuary, which debuted in 2006 aboard Crown Princess, offers plush seating, massage cabanas, signature beverages, light meals, service by “serenity stewards” and soothing personal entertainment.
To make room for the newest Sanctuary, the sports court on Sapphire Princess was relocated to a new space on top of Skywalkers nightclub. The installation of The Sanctuary on Sapphire Princess marked the beginning of a transformation for the ship, which will go into dry dock from Jan. 7 to Feb. 4. The ship will receive the Piazza atrium with its International Café and Vines wine bar; the line’s second Alfredo’s pizzeria, which was introduced earlier this year aboard Grand Princess; and the Movies Under the Stars poolside movie screen.
