The 900-plus-days deployment will be record-breaking and will see the line carry more passengers than ever on board five different ships on itineraries from Sydney, Fremantle, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland.
Stuart Allison, SVP Asia Pacific, stated the season will be spearheaded by the maiden arrival of the 3,080-passenger Ruby Princess and the return of 3,560-passenger Majestic Princess for a second season.
Allison also commented that Majestic and Ruby will cruise 444 days out of Sydney, carrying more than 100,000 passengers.
“Our largest deployment will feature five ships sailing from six homeports on over 125 departures across more than 60 itineraries to over 100 destinations in 30 countries.
The arrival of Ruby Princess, combined with news of Majestic’s return before she has completed her maiden season here, means we will have two of the four latest Princess ships sailing in this region which speaks to the momentous growth of our market.”
South Australia will also see a surge in cruise ships sailing to and from the region, with Golden Princess, Sun Princess and Majestic Princess completing itineraries to and from Adelaide.
Highlights for guests will include a new 10-day voyage to Tasmania, with calls at Burnie, Port Arthur, Hobart and Sydney.
Golden Princess will return to Melbourne, sailing to destinations in New Zealand, South Australia and the South Pacific with a new 14-day Queensland cruise calling at Airlie Beach, Yorkey’s Knob, Port Douglas, Brisbane, Newcastle and Sydney.
