At the beginning of October Princess Cruises announced details of the 77,499gt/1998 built Sea Princess’ upcoming refurbishment including the creation of a new sports bar, a first for the cruise line’s Australian-based fleet. The ship’s existing Premier Cru bar will be transformed into an intimate new whisky bar The Nook.
The move follows the overwhelming success of Princess’ first whisky bar launched on the Dawn Princess in Australia earlier this year. The Sea Princess’ multi-million dollar refurbishment took place in Singapore from 3rd to 17th October and also saw the addition of a new amulet Café as well as a major refurbishment of the Horizon Court dining area.
On the ship’s top decks, a New Zealand Natural ice cream outlet will be created beside the main pools, while new Australian BBQ offerings will be available from the poolside grill. The Wheelhouse Bar and Pizzeria will also undergo a makeover, while the boutique areas and spa will be refurbished.
