The ‘Emer­ald City of Oz’ wel­comes a Princess!

Out & About with Kids - - DID YOU KNOW...? -

For the first time, the big­gest ship in the Princess Cruises fleet – the spec­tac­u­lar 3082-guest Emer­ald Princess – will be based Down Un­der, sail­ing into the ‘Emer­ald City’ of Syd­ney on 15 Novem­ber, ahead of her five-month long maiden sea­son in Oz. (Syd­ney earned the nick­name ‘Emer­ald City of Oz’, from the 1987 David Williamson play ‘Emer­ald City’) Stretch­ing 290m, Emer­ald Princess fea­tures more than 1500 guest rooms, and ev­ery one of them boasts the new ‘Princess Lux­ury Bed’ for the ul­ti­mate sleep at sea!

Kids and teens will be con­stantly en­ter­tained on­board, with age-ap­pro­pri­ate ‘cen­tres’ fea­tur­ing the lat­est video games and movies, arts and crafts, board games and juke­boxes, kids’ karaoke, pizza par­ties, py­jama nights and more. Mums and dads can en­joy the kid-free ‘Sanc­tu­ary’, and lux­u­ri­ous Lo­tus Spa, and dine out at SHARE by Cur­tis Stone, a stun­ning 125-seat restau­rant with a mouth-wa­ter­ing menu de­signed by the award­win­ning chef.

But Emer­ald Princess won’t have much time to en­joy her Emer­ald City home port dur­ing her de­but 2016/2017 sea­son, with 13 round-trip cruises sched­uled from Syd­ney, to des­ti­na­tions in the South Pa­cific, New Zealand and Aus­tralia.
