While Ocean Princess features space onboard for just 680 passengers, she doesn’t skimp on amenities. As one of the Small Ships of Princess, this intimate ship offers two incredible specialty restaurants onboard, Sterling Steakhouse and Sabatini’s, both with great tasting food to enhance your night out. In the main dining rooms, Traditional Dining offers an authentic cruising experience where the same friendly waitstaff serve you each night as you get to know your fellow tablemates.
