Princess Cruises is adding more love to its newest “Love Boat” when it debuts in February 2024. The cruise line announced a new specialty dining experience as a first-of-its-kind dining collaboration with world-renowned artist Romero Britto, founder of the Happy Art Movement.

New Ship Brings the Love With New Restaurant Concept

Sun Princess, the first of the new Sphere class of ships by Princess Cruises, will debut a new dining experience during its February 2024 launch. “Love by Britto” will blend Britto’s bold, colorful style with a curated menu by Master Chef Rudi Sodamin into a new artistic-inspired experience on deck 17 of Sun Princess’ aft deck.

The innovative new concept will offer a setting, artwork, and menu specifically designed to create an unparalleled dining destination, creating a boutique space for couples to immerse into “a world of vivid color, bold patterns, and heartfelt emotions.”

Transcending into a multisensory exploration and offering dishes embodying the artist’s passion, the unique experience features a seven-course, prix fixe menu, costing $149 per person.

Love by Britto on the Sun Princess celebrates the universal language of love, expressed through Britto’s vibrant art and design, and promises to be uplifting and transformative for our guests,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises. “With a perfect blend of art, beauty, and soul, Love by Britto is destined to leave a lasting impression.

What is the Menu?

With art meant to inspire love, happiness, and fun through vibrant colors, Miami-based Brazilian Britto and Sodamin’s new concept will be set to inspire the same through food and decor aboard Sun Princess.

Says Britto about the collaboration, “On the amazing Sun Princess, we’re going to celebrate love for life every evening by pairing an incredibly unique vibe along with exceptional cuisine to create a setting for everyone to indulge their senses and emotions.

Diners will begin their experience with a flute of Champagne before being treated to an array of luxury dishes. Starters will feature delectable fare like Oysters with Champagne Pearls and Grilled Fig with Prosciutto and Roquefort. Savory soup and salad options will extend to delicacies like quail eggs, pomegranate, and avocado, as well as Asparagus and Watermelon Cocktail with Vodka.
