Princess Cruises’ 2023-24 Australia and New Zealand season features four ships including two Royal-class ships - Majestic Princess and Royal Princess – as well as Coral Princess and Grand Princess offering 76 itineraries to 68 destinations in total.

The ships will sail from Australia and New Zealand’s homeports, such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, and Auckland, giving guests varied options on where to embark for their sailing. Each port possesses its own unique culture, lifestyle, and charm. Guests can experience the iconic sights of Sydney, Brisbane’s coastal beauty, Melbourne’s rich culture, the famed wine country of Perth and Auckland, the land of the Māori, and more departures to and from Adelaide than ever before.

“Australia and New Zealand are among the top destinations for our guests in Southeast Asia, and we see increased interest for cruises Down Under and Across the Ditch since the border openings. We are blending immersive onboard experiences with epic landscapes, colourful cultures, and laid-back charm to provide memorable cruise vacations,” said Farriek Tawfik, Country Director for Southeast Asia, Princess Cruises.

Guests will also have the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular scenery of Fiordland National Park, immerse themselves in Māori culture, see glowworms twinkle in underground caves outside Auckland, and peek into movie-making magic with The Lord of the Rings tour in Wellington.

Princess Cruises also offers a vast array of award-winning excursions and tours that provide unique experiences. For example, bush-walking in the Blue Mountains or visiting the Australian Outback, during which guests can immerse themselves in Aboriginal culture and visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Great Barrier Reef and the Uluru National Park.
