Princess Cruises has announced that its latest ship, the Majestic Princess, will be based in Sydney over the 2018-19 summer season.
Carrying 3560 guests, the Majestic Princess will be the largest Princess ship ever to sail in Australian waters, and during her inaugural Australian season will sail on 16 cruises to destinations including Fiji, New Zealand and Tasmania as well as two Asia voyages between Shanghai and Sydney, and Sydney and Hong Kong.
The ultimate in premium cruising, Majestic Princess features 13 dining options including two restaurants with menus designed by Michelin star chefs, more than 1000 square metres of designer shopping, the cruise line’s largest ever thermal suite and a dramatic over-the-ocean glass walkway, the SeaWalk.
Guests can enjoy a wide range of high-end accommodation including suites, Club Class mini-suites and new deluxe balcony rooms, with more than 80 per cent of the ship’s 1780 staterooms offering private balconies.
Majestic Princess’ deployment is a highlight of Princess Cruises’ new 2018-19 Australia and New Zealand program, which goes on sale on Thursday 27 April 2017. The program features Majestic Princess, Golden Princess, Sun Princess and Sea Princess – which together will offer almost 100 cruises from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Fremantle and Auckland over a seven-month period.
Princess Cruises vice president Australia & New Zealand Stuart Allison said the deployment of Majestic Princess was testament to Australians’ love of cruising and the popularity of Princess Cruises in the region.
“From her gourmet restaurants to her stunning onboard features, Majestic Princess is nothing short of magnificent. We’re thrilled to be welcoming our newest, most stylish and most luxurious flagship to our shores – having just experienced her preview voyage I know Australian cruisers will love all that she has to offer,” Allison said.
