Five Princess ships deliver largest ever Australia and New Zealand season in 2019-20

Princess Cruises' 2019-20 Australian cruise season will be the largest in its history with a record five ships carrying 200,000 guests to more than 100 destinations.

Sailings from Sydney, Perth (Fremantle), Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland will head around Australia, New Zealand and beyond including Singapore, Hong Kong, Fiji and Bali.

Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises’ vice president for UK and Europe, said: “UK bookings to Australia have nearly doubled year-on-year in 2018 so it is fitting we’re now gearing up for our largest ever Australia and New Zealand season.

“We are anticipating an increase in UK visitors to the west coast of Australia, including Perth and its stunning coastal setting, and have ensured we will spend more time there so guests can take advantage of everything the region has to offer.”

The season includes the return of the 3,560 guest Majestic Princess, the line’s newest ship, as well as the maiden arrival of the 3,100-guest Ruby Princess. Both ships will sail out of Sydney.

South Australia will see a surge in cruise ships sailing to and from the region, with the 2,600-guest Golden Princess, 2,000-guest Sun Princess and Majestic Princess completing itineraries to and from Adelaide.

Four Princess ships will spend 141 days cruising from Perth, the longest period of time a cruise line has visited the region. Sun Princess will spend a dedicated season based in Perth from November 2019 to March 2020.

In Brisbane, the 2,000-guest Sea Princess will return to complete itineraries spanning two to 35 days, calling at destinations across New Zealand, Australia, Papua New Guinea, the Coral Sea, South Pacific and Hawaii. Highlights include a new 10-day voyage to Tasmania, with calls to Burnie, Port Arthur, Hobart, and Sydney.

Golden Princess returns to Melbourne, sailing to destinations in New Zealand, South Australia and the South Pacific. Highlights include a new 14-day Queensland cruise with calls to Airlie Beach, Yorkey’s Knob, Port Douglas, Brisbane, Newcastle and Sydney and a new seven-day ‘Southern Australia Explorer’ with late night calls in Adelaide.
