December 2, 2021 | After the first outbreaks of the corona pandemic, Australia quickly enforced strict border closings for its own nationals and foreigners.
At the beginning of November 2021, the fifth continent opened its international borders for travel. Last but not least, this is positive news for cruise lines. The US premium shipping company Princess Cruises is reacting to this and is planning to move into the Season 2023/24 four ships to Australia and New Zealand to post.
The Coral Princess are used, Majestic Princess, Royal Princess and Grand Princess. Ports of departure include Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Fremantle (Perth) and Auckland (New Zealand). From today's perspective, the program looks like this:
The Coral Princess will start in the spring of 2024 from Sydney (alternatively from Brisbane or Auckland) on a 110-day trip around the world.

The Majestic Princess, Royal Princess, Grand Princess cruise around Australia and also head for destinations in Southeast Asia. The Coral and Royal Princess take 12 to 21 day trips from Fremantle and Sydney to Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and Japan.
Two-week trips to New Zealand are particularly attractive for nature lovers. Four ships in the Princess fleet set sail for New Zealand from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The highlight of the trips is the uniquely beautiful Fjordland National Park, which is 12.500 square kilometers in size.

A special highlight is a four-week trip on the Grand Princess. The ship will sail from Sydney to San Francisco in April 2024. There are stops in Fiji, Samoa, Bora, Bora, Tahiti and Hawaii. The trip is undoubtedly a treat for those who enjoy relaxed ocean voyages. - Another highlight of the program range are the Princess Cruisetours. They combine cruise and land arrangements to create an extraordinary vacation experience. The "Australian Outback Adventure" tours with the Royal or the Majestic Princess are particularly noteworthy. The tours include a visit to Uluru (Ayers Rock).
