PRINCESS Cruises has an­nounced a sixth ship will join its fleet of ves­sels in Aus­tralia for the 2020/21 sum­mer cruis­ing sea­son, with the cruise line to­day con­firm­ing that Pa­cific Princess will re­turn to lo­cal waters in Dec 2020 ( CW break­ing news).

The ar­rival of the iconic ship will co­in­cide with the 45th an­niver­sary of Princess Cruises’ first roundtrip cruise from Aus­tralia, a voyage on the orig­i­nal

Pa­cific Princess which starred in

the TV series The Love Boat.

The 670-guest ship will make 15 maiden calls dur­ing what Princess is call­ing its big­gest Aus­tralian sea­son ( CW 27 Mar), in­clud­ing inaugural vis­its to Kaik­oura and New Ply­mouth in New Zealand, We­wak and Gizo Is­land in the Solo­man Is­lands, and Madang in Pa­pua New Guinea.

The ship will also of­fer pas­sen­gers a 90-day roundtrip voyage from Sydney around South Amer­ica.

“Pa­cific Princess was chris­tened in Aus­tralia and be­came a pop­u­lar favourite amongst Aus­tralian cruis­ers, of­fer­ing the first pre­mium cruise ex­pe­ri­ence in the re­gion,” said Stu­art Allison, SVP Asia-Pa­cific, Princess Cruises.

“We can’t wait to wel­come her back to our shores and cel­e­brate our 45th an­niver­sary at the same time,” he added.

The ad­di­tion of the ship means Aus­tralian cruis­ers will have a wide choice of six Princess ships over the course of the sea­son, in­clud­ing Sap­phire Princess, Sun Princess, Sea Princess, Ma­jes c Princess and Re­gal Princess.

Book­ings open on 11 Jul for Elite mem­bers, and 12 Jul for the gen­eral pub­lic. Pic­tured: Pa­cific Princess.
