Princess Sets Largest Australia and New Zealand Deployment
Princess Cruises’ 2012-13 season of Down Under cruising offers new routes, a solar eclipse cruise, a new cruise-tour to the Outback, and more sailings to New Zealand than any other line. Princess says its deployment is the largest Australia deployment of any North American line.
In total, four ships -- Diamond Princess, Sun Princess, Dawn Princess and Sea Princess -- will sail 40 voyages of eight itineraries in the region. Among them are a longer 14-day Australia and New Zealand itinerary that adds two ports, Wellington and Picton, and a 33-day “Round Australia & New Zealand” route.
Additionally, an 11-day Queensland cruise aboard Dawn Princess offers the opportunity to view the Nov. 14, 2012, solar eclipse in its area of totality around northern Australia. This includes a day at sea to view the solar eclipse.
A new seven-night cruise-tour features a train ride into the Outback from Adelaide aboard the historic Ghan Railway. For more information, call 800-PRINCESS or visit www.princess.com.
