Princess has just unveiled its biggest ever Australia programme, including record capacity in Sydney and Adelaide and the deployment of its two newest ships.
The 2020-21 programme goes on sale from April 11th 2019 with a choice of 123 cruises.
Five Princess ships departing from six ports across Australia between October 2020 and April 2021.
The line will visit almost 80 destinations in 19 countries and increase the number of cruise days to their highest ever level.
Tony Roberts, vice president Princess Cruises UK & Europe, said: “Australia cruises are booming in popularity with our UK guests so I’m delighted we’re offering our widest ever choice of calls and ships.
From short sailings visiting picturesque Australian coastal towns to exotic voyages to Papua New Guinea and Asia, holidaymakers can tick off a range of bucket list destinations down under and all from the comfort of our premium service ships.”
Guests will be able to choose from visits to 14 UNESCO World Heritage sites and a range of late night departures.
The season will see the Princess’ newest ship, the 3,560-guest Majestic Princess, return to Australia for her third season to sail alongside sister ship, Regal Princess, which will make her inaugural visit.
Both will be based in Sydney, offering 35 cruises between them which will boost the line’s Sydney capacity to record levels.
