Our Complete Guide to Sun Princess Restaurants with Menus

Elevate your dining experience on your next Princess cruise with our complete guide to all the Sun Princess restaurants with menus.

Sun Princess Restaurant Guide With Menus

The brand-new Sun Princess offers more dining options than any other Princess Cruises ship. While we were onboard for only 5 days, we did our best to eat and drink as much as possible. So, we are back and share all of the delicious details in our latest Sun Princess restaurants guide with menus.

Sun Princess Restaurants Guide With Menus

Complimentary Sun Princess Restaurants

There are several dining options on the list of Sun Princess restaurants that are included in your cruise fare. These include the main dining room as well as the newly relocated cruise ship buffet. There are also a few other quick service options throughout the ship. Not to mention, there’s not one but two coffee shops also serving light bites throughout the day.


Horizons Dining Room (Decks 6 & 7)

A first for Princess Cruises, the Horizons Dining Room is a stunning three-story venue. The aft of this newly redesigned space is more open and features stunning wake views. This spacious and grand setup makes this dining room the most elegant on any Princess Cruises ship.

Each deck of the Horizons Dining Room offers a unique experience. Deck 6 is the largest of the three main dining rooms, which is open to traditional diners. Traditional dining on our cruise was at 5 PM and 7:30 PM. Deck 7 is reserved for guests who prefer flexible dining. Guests with this dining arrangement can make reservations through the cruise line’s app either pre-cruise or once onboard the ship.

Decks 6 and 7 serve the cruise line’s signature menu, with a rotational selection of starters, entrees, and desserts each night of the cruise. Plus, there’s a selection of Princess Favorites on the menu that remains the same each evening.

Regardless of your dinner preference, all guests can walk up for breakfast from 7 AM to 9 AM daily at the Deck 6 Horizons Dining Room. On sea days, lunch is available from 11:30 AM to 1 PM here as well. While the breakfast menu stays the same, the lunch menu does rotate during the cruise.

Breakfast | Lunch 1 | Lunch 2 | Lunch 3 | Lunch 4 | Dinner 1 | Dinner 2 | Dinner 3 | Dinner 4 | Dinner 5 | Dinner 6 | Dinner 7 | Dinner 8 | Dinner 9 | Dinner 10 | Wine List

Americana Diner (Deck 8)

The third level of the main dining room on Sun Princess is referred to as the Americana Diner. While the décor of this Deck 8 space looks similar to the other decks, the dining concept is completely different. As the smallest of the three dining rooms, it boasts warm wood finishes and metallic accents with a more casual vibe.

The menu too is different. This venue serves an all-day menu featuring classic American comfort food, like shrimp po-boys, chicken wings, and pork ribs. Not to mention, it offers all day breakfast! This menu remains the same for the duration of the cruise.

This is the least formal of the three dining rooms, with no dress code. The Americana Diner is open most days for brunch (from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM) and dinner (6 PM to 10 PM).

Reservations are not accepted for any meals here; so it is first come, first served for all meals.

All Day Menu

Coffee Currents (Deck 7)

Another new addition to Sun Princess is a second coffee shop in the Piazza. Open from 6 AM to late, Coffee Currents serves the same menu of espresso-based drinks as the International Café.

Sun Princess restaurants

However, it boasts more seating than its Deck 9 counterpart and a lounge that offers ocean views from the Sphere on the starboard side.

A small selection of bakery items is available throughout the day; though, there are less food options here vs. the International Cafe. While the coffee drinks are an upcharge here, all of the food items are complimentary.

Signature Restaurant (Deck 7)

Guests staying in Signature Collection suites can access this private and exquisite restaurant. Boasting plenty of natural light and an ornate glass centerpiece, this intimate venue features an exclusive menu that rotates nightly.

Guests staying in suites do not need to make reservations to dine in the Signature Restaurant.

The restaurant is open every day for breakfast (7 AM to 9:30 AM) and dinner (5 PM to 9 PM). On sea days, suite guests can dine at the Signature Restaurant for lunch from 11:30 AM to 1 PM as well.

The Reserve Collection Restaurant (Deck 7)

Previously known as the Club Class, guests booked in the most ideally located mini-suites and cabana staterooms can access an exclusive restaurant as well, the Reserve Collection Restaurant. This private restaurant serves an elevated version of the main dining room menu, with a few distinct selections each night.

The restaurant is open every day for breakfast (7 AM to 9:30 AM) and dinner (5 PM to 9 PM). On sea days, guests can dine at the Reserve Collection Restaurant from 11:30 AM to 1 PM for lunch.

International Café (Deck 9)

This Princess Cruises staple serves up convenient eats around the clock. Open 24 hours a day, the International Cafe offers savory breakfast sandwiches and pastries in the morning to flatbreads, sandwiches, and delightful desserts in the afternoon.

All of the food at this Café is included in the cruise fare, and espresso-based drinks are covered in the Princess Cruises Drink Package.

This newly relocated space now offers outdoor seating on the Deck 9 promenade as well, another first for Princess Cruises.

The Eatery (Deck 9)

The cruise ship buffet on Sun Princess has been renamed and relocated. Now on Deck 9, The Eatery still serves various delicacies and specialties for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

This all-day dining venue is conveniently located adjacent to the Piazza and offers expansive windows overlooking the outdoor Promenade. Further, the cruise line redesigned the layout of the buffet to enhance traffic flow. New to the cruise line, chefs at the Eatery serve all of the food to guests.

Cruisers can choose from various warm and cold food selections from nine food stations. These include Asian stir-fry, Mexican favorites, and Italian classics. There’s also carving boards of roasted meats, tapas, bread, salad selections, fruits, and desserts for every sweet tooth.

With so many casual options, we only dined at the Eatery once for breakfast. Custom omelet stations and staple items like eggs, breakfast potatoes, meats, and bakery items gave us plenty to choose from, and we had no complaints.

During our cruise, breakfast was open most days from 6 AM to 10 AM. Lunch was served from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM, with dinner open from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM nightly.

The Promenade (Deck 9)

An extension of the Eatery, there are additional quick service stations outside on the Deck 9 promenade. Offering menu items similar to Lido Eats up on the pool deck, the Promenade features dining stations and a bar on each side of the ship.

Among the quick service items served here are pizza, tacos, burgers, fries, and soft-serve ice cream. The Promenade is open most days from 11 AM to 6 PM.

Lido Eats (Deck 17)

With a laid-back resort vibe, the new Lido Eats offers quick service counter options up on the main pool deck. With five unique stands, there is something for everyone. Cruisers can find a satisfying snack most of the day, from salads to tacos, burgers, hot dogs, and pizza.

During our cruise, Lido Eats was open daily from 11 AM to 9 PM. Covered tables and chairs are available nearby, or cruisers can grab their food and head back to a lounge chair near the pool.

We think this is a nice addition, so cruisers lounging poolside don’t have to trek down to the Eatery when lunch time rolls around.

Specialty Restaurants on Sun Princess

With so many great complimentary offerings, you certainly do not have to pay extra for dining on Sun Princess (if you don’t want to). Though, this new ship also offers a few specialty restaurants that come with an up-charge.

Happily, Princess Cruises has maintained several of the line’s popular specialty restaurants. Many of these restaurants feature enhanced menus to align with the latest contemporary design and décor of the venues themselves.  

Sun Princess restaurants

If you plan to dine at any of these Sun Princess restaurants, you should make reservations pre-cruise, as popular dining times do fill up quickly.

Crown Grill (Deck 7)

A favorite of Princess guests who enjoy a perfectly grilled steak, Crown Grill on Sun Princess takes this classic steakhouse to a new level with modern and upscale decor. Inviting leather booths, circular seating, and contemporary artwork custom-designed for this restaurant welcome guests for an unforgettable dinner experience.

Featuring premium aged beef and fresh seafood, this specialty restaurant offers an intimate dining experience in a classically elegant setting. Guests can also enjoy views of their food prepared in the most extensive show galley on a Princess ship.

Dinner at the Crown Grill is available from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM for a cost of $45 per person. Reservations are required.

O’Malley’s Irish Pub (Deck 7)

One of our favorite bars on the new Sun Princess is O’Malley’s Irish Pub. Many cruise ships feature pubs, but O’Malley’s has the energy and ambiance of an Irish pub in Dublin.

Sun Princess restaurants

This traditional Irish pub boasts live music, interactive entertainment, and mouthwatering menu items. It serves comfort food at its best – pub-style Fish & Chips, Traditional Bangers & Mash, and Shepherd’s Pie, typically from 5:30 PM to 9 PM.  

Menu items are priced a la carte, or cruisers can opt for a three-course meal including a starter, an entrée, and a dessert for $14.99 (plus gratuity). The Princess Plus and Princess Premier packages include food at O’Malley’s Irish Pub.

Of course, even if you don’t want to dine here, you can still stop in for a drink and some Irish tunes.

Gelateria (Deck 7)

To utilize every inch of the Deck 7 space, Sun Princess has a small gelato station tucked into a corner of the hallway across from Princess Live. Here, cruisers can indulge in freshly made gelato, affogato, and cremosito.

However, the Princess Plus and the Princess Premier packages do not cover items at the Gelateria.

Gelateria Menu

Makoto Ocean (Deck 8)

This modern sushi bar, adjacent to the heart of the Piazza, offers spectacular views from the Sphere along with a vast array of sushi and sashimi specialties. Reshaping traditional sushi with a creative approach, Chef Makoto Okuwa brings his 25 years of experience to Sun Princess with exquisitely presented dishes paying tribute to Japanese traditions.

Formerly Kai Sushi, the newly re-branded Makoto Ocean offers mouthwatering bites that guests can enjoy from intimate tables. Or, they can watch sushi crafting at its best from expert chefs at the traditional sushi bar. 

Makoto Ocean is open for dinner each night from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM. The $45 cover charge includes a Bento Box, Vegetarian, or Sushi Set Menu. Reservations are required.  

Dinner Menu

Umai Teppanyaki (Deck 8)

Exclusive to Sun Princess, Umai Teppanyaki is the first Japanese steakhouse on a Princess Cruises ship. Here, highly skilled teppanyaki masters take center stage, using their fiery skills and flair to create a highly entertaining dinner-and-a-show experience.

The meal begins with a selection of starters like Pork Belly Yakitori Rocks and progresses to grill entrées like Filet Mignon, Shrimp, or Chicken. Additional courses include edamame, miso soup, vegetables, a bowl of freshly made fried rice, and a choice of dessert.

Umai Teppanyaki is open for lunch on sea days and dinner every night of the cruise. There are two seating times, a first seating at 5 PM and a second seating at 7:30 PM. For lunch, there is one seating at 12 PM.

Teppanyaki Menu

Within the Umai venue, cruisers can also opt for a hot pot experience. This is also a first for Princess Cruises or any other cruise line for that matter. During this communal experience, guests craft a custom meal at one of the hot pot tables. Cruisers choose from 3 broths and several platters, like seafood, meat, or vegetarian, and then boil up the perfect meal.

Dinner also includes rice, noodles, vegetables, and dessert. The up-charge for the Hot Pot experience is $45 per person, and reservations are required. During our cruise, this experience was only available during dinner from 5 PM to 9:30 PM.

Hot Pot Menu

Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria (Deck 8)

Another Princess staple, Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria, has been re-imagined on Sun Princess. This modern restaurant features a new layout and elegant decor with intimate bistro-style nooks. It offers a sophisticated yet cozy and approachable dining experience for groups of various sizes.

Further, all cruisers will want to stop by to take a peek at the freshly made pasta prepared at the entrance of the restaurant.

The menu features unique handmade pasta courses prepared fresh daily, along with other classic Italian dishes. Guests can enjoy starters like arancini, creamy Burrata Caprese, and Classic Beef Carpaccio. Seafood dishes and savory meat selections like lamb chops, veal tenderloin, and chicken parm are entree highlights. And of course, cruisers can’t pass on the Tiramisu or my favorite, the Ricotta Cheesecake, for dessert.

Similar to other specialty restaurants, reservations are required for Sabatini’s. The restaurant’s cover charge is $45 a person, with the dining room open from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM nightly.

Dinner Menu

Alfredo’s Pizzeria (Deck 9)

This charming favorite, serving the “Best Pizza at Sea,” has an open kitchen design on Sun Princess. At Alfredo’s Pizzeria, guests can watch the chefs create pizza by hand and serve it straight out of the oven.

New to the kitchen is a professional, open-mouth oven that reaches 968 degrees. At these temperatures, chefs prepare truly authentic Neapolitan pizza in just 90 seconds.

Plus, guests can enjoy seating right in the Piazza, or outdoor seating is also available on the Promenade. Alfredo’s Pizzeria is open from 11 AM to 9:30 PM daily. 

Menu items are priced a la carte, or cruisers can opt for a three-course meal including a starter, an entrée, and a dessert for $14.99 (plus gratuity). Cruisers with Princess Plus and Princess Premier packages can dine at Alfredo’s Pizzeria for no additional charge. If it’s been a while since you’ve cruised with Princess, you should note this change, as Alfredo’s is no longer free for all guests to enjoy.

Alfredo’s Pizzeria Menu

The Butcher’s Block by Dario (Deck 9)

This new specialty impromptu bistro is located on Deck 9 portside at the aft of The Eatery. In partnership with the world’s most famous butcher, Dario Cecchini, this new dining concept is open for dinner with two seatings every night. During our cruise, the first seating was 5:15 PM and the second seating was 7:45 PM.

Serving an 8-course carnivore’s delight in a family-style setting, this restaurant is all about enjoying a communal dining experience with family and friends.

The evening begins with a glass of red wine and an introduction from the onboard chef. The team showcases that night’s signature cuts before searing them to a medium temperature and carving them for everyone to see in the dining room. 

Along with some sides, cruisers can also indulge in crusty bread and a shared bottle of Chianti. Just make sure to save room for the Oil Olive cake for dessert.

If you are cruising with someone who doesn’t eat red meat, like Heidi, there is a vegetarian menu available at a discounted price.

Dinner Menu

The Catch by Rudi (Deck 9)

The Catch by Rudi is also a pop-up dinner concept on Sun Princess from renowned Chef Rudi Sodamin. This venue is located across the way from The Butcher’s Block at the aft of The Eatery on the starboard side.

The Catch is a seafood-centric restaurant showcasing treasures from the sea, like shrimp cocktail, Seafaring Stew, and Calamari with seasoned panko coating and lemon aioli as appetizers. For entrees, guests can enjoy dishes like surf & turf or the catch of the day. And, the meal wouldn’t be complete without the signature Mozart’s Berry Composition for dessert.

While this restaurant is on other Princess Cruises ships, the menu on Sun Princess is different.

The Catch by Rudi is open for dinner from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM daily. Like most other specialty restaurants on Sun Princess, the cover charge is $45 a person, plus gratuity. Of note, a few menu items are an additional charge here like the Whole Shebang 12 oz. Lobster Tail.

Dinner Menu

Coffee and Cones (Deck 17)

Cruisers will want to head aft on Deck 17 portside for a sweet treat. At Coffee and Cones, cruisers can get espresso-based drinks and free soft serve. However, cruisers can also indulge in one of the premium ice cream selections that are part of the Princess Plus and Princess Premier packages. These premium desserts can also be purchased a la carte for $12.

Coffee and Cones is open most days from 10 AM to 10 PM.

Coffee and Cones Menu

Love By Britto (Deck 17)

Located completely aft on Deck 17 affording wonderful wake views is another new restaurant concept for Princess Cruises. In partnership with artist Romero Britto, this intimate venue will offer an exceptional menu created by Chef Rudi.

This artistically-inspired dining experience will celebrate the essence of “love”. However, the venue was not finished during our sailing, and we were told the menu is still in the works. We received no official word as to when the venue will officially debut on Sun Princess.
