After months of teasing, Princess Cruises has revealed what will be behind the secret black door on Sun Princess – magic shows and mixology in a Victorian-style venue.
International conjurors and illusionists will perform mind-blowing tricks while servers deliver themed cocktails in Spellbound by Magic Castle, a collaboration with the Hollywood club.

Guests enter the Music Room, where they meet the spirit of Isabella who was lost at sea and has since found her new home on Sun Princess.
The Parlor Bar has an artwork featuring Artemis the owl. In the 30-seat Spellbound theatre, 30-minute performances of close-up magic will be performed nightly.
The decor for the venue on the ship, launching next February, will include magical artefacts, vintage curiosities and interactive special effects.

‘This collaboration with The Magic Castle takes entertainment into new dimensions with an extraordinary experience that combines the allure of magic with the thrill of cruising. Spellbound will become an iconic guest favourite on Sun Princess.’

It’s an exciting opportunity for guests to immerse themselves in a magical experience typically reserved exclusively for members and their guests.’
