Luxury cruise ship to act as 'floating hotel' for Tokyo Olympics

1,000-cabin Sun Princess to provide accommodations for 2020 Games

TOKYO -- A huge cruise ship featuring restaurants, pools and a theater will be used as a luxury hotel at Yokohama Port during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to alleviate an expected shortage of accommodations for the event. 

The 261-meter Sun Princess will dock at the port’s Yamashita pier between July 23, 2020, the day before the games open, and Aug. 9, the games' final day.
