We get to share some of his amazing pics and videos, just to give our SA stylists a real feel for what they can expect on an onboard salon career move!


“A very quick visit to Naples ,Italy , our 1st stop on this maiden voyage of THE SUN PRINCESS 2. Just 1 hour was all I needed to feel the warmth of the sun. We docked in the heart of the city, so a short walk and you are on the main street.  Where the Sun Princess goes, she brings the sunshine. As we sailed away, the sunset was beautiful and the lights came on, turning the city into a magical place.”

Messina Sicily was truly magical.


Kusadasi, Turkey .

“I had a lovely day off to enjoy the sunshine with my fellow hairstylist, Melvin. Took a walk into the markets and shops.”


Mallorca - Another visit to this beautiful city. So much to see. Out with my teammates, great lunch, some shopping. A very happy Melvin Quintana now that he has his clipper!”

Genoa, Italy.

“It was my first time in this city. Stunning place with lots to see in architecture. No single houses here. Only apartment buildings. Had a nice walk around d with my friend Andrea. The marina is great. Lots of shops and restaurants. We will be back here very often, so I will get to see and show you more of the city as the weeks go by.


Corfu Greece .

“My first time to visit. A full day off. Started off with Melvin Quintana ,Andrea and Marcial Kim Traje . Finished off with Kaothala Pao and Elcy. Great weather. Good food and awesome friends. We will be back here a few more times. Shopping here is good. Quality items at affordable prices. Lots of handmade jewellery and top quality leather goods. Lots of friendly restaurants, the staff are all so welcoming and speak good English. Food is always good in Greece.”


Bar, Montenegro .

“Small little village . We had to stop here coz we could not get into Kotor. The Sun Princess 2 is the first cruise ship to stop here for the year, and will probably be the only one. Ships don't stop here unless they have to.


The residents were very happy to see us liven up their village for the day. They welcomed us with song and dance and then waved us off so happily.”

And finally, even Easter was celebrated onboard with the most incredible giant Easter Eggs!
