Just kidding….it’s a bit more than a dingy.
Here are the numbers:

  • When Sun Princess was launched in 1995 she was the world’s biggest cruise liner and set new standards in passenger ship design
  • Sun Princess was the biggest cruise liner ever to sail under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Stretching 49.4m above the waterline – the equivalent of a 20-storey building – she was clearing the bridge’s road deck with just 4m to spare
  • Weighing a huge 77,000 tons, Sun Princess is equivalent in tonnage to 68 Manly ferries, 200 Qantas jumbos and 706 blue whales – the world’s biggest animal
  • Sun Princess is 1.7 times the size of the legendary Titanic (46,000 tons) and bigger than Cunard’s famous QE2 (70,300 tons)
  • If tipped on her stern, the 261m long Sun Princess would stretch 11m higher than the observation deck of Sydney Tower, the city’s tallest building.
  • The ship offers more ‘must-have’ balcony cabins (410) – than any other ship ever tailored for Australians. The abundance of balcony cabins makes them more affordable then before.
  • With 975 staterooms, Sun Princess boasts more accommodation rooms than Australia’s largest hotel, Sydney’s 630-room Four Points by Sheraton in Darling Harbour.
  • Every seven days, Sun Princess passengers consume 10,000 bottles of wine and champagne, 10,000 cans of soft drink and 2400 bottles of water
  • Her 2900 passengers and crew is the equivalent of eight fully-laden jumbo jets.
  • More than 1100 passengers can enjoy dinner at the same time
