One of the best-known names in cruising, Princess Cruises first set sail in 1965 with a single ship cruising to Mexico. Since that day, Princess has grown to become the third largest cruise line in the world, with its fleet of 17 ships carrying 1.7 million guests each year to more than 300 destinations around the globe. Cruises range from 3 to 114 days, allowing guests to see the world and come back new.

No matter where Princess ships sail, passengers enjoy warm and gracious service in an atmosphere of comfortable elegance.  Princess crew members are dedicated to providing exceptional service to ensure guests can escape the everyday with an unforgettable holiday.

Since it based its first ship year-round in Australia in 2007, Princess Cruises has continued to expand its offering, pioneering new itineraries for the local market including the first roundtrip world cruises from Australian shores.  Ten years on, the brand has operated 15 world voyages and remains the only cruise line offering roundtrip voyages from Australia that circumnavigate the globe.

Princess Cruises is also the leader in cruises to New Zealand, carrying more than 40 per cent of Australian cruise passengers to the destination.. 

Australians spend more nights sailing with Princess Cruises than on any other cruise line.

Three popular ships – Sun Princess, Sea Princess and Golden Princess – are presently based in Australian waters, while Diamond Princess will be deployed in Sydney over the 2017-18 summer.

In 2018, Golden Princess will be the first of the cruise line’s locally deployed ships to receive Carnival Corporation’s new Ocean Medallion technology which has been hailed as a game changer for guest experience, enabling a level of service and personalisation never before considered possible.

In September 2018, Australia will welcome Princess Cruises’ new Majestic Princess, which will be homeported in Sydney for a five-month season.  The 143,000-tonne Majestic Princess will be the largest Princess Cruises’ ship ever to sail in Australian waters, with her deployment confirming the cruise line’s popularity amongst Australian and New Zealand cruisers.
