Princess Cruises has announced plans to cruise from Adelaide for the first time in 2017-2018, offering a roundtrip voyage to New Zealand.

The cruise line’s new 2017-2018 program will see the Golden Princess make history when she departs Adelaide on a 17-night international cruise to New Zealand on January 8, 2018, with calls to Melbourne, Dunedin, Akaroa, Wellington, Gisborne, Tauranga and Auckland.
The cruise is one of 25 roundtrip cruises to New Zealand featured in the program, with Princess continuing to offer the biggest range of trans-Tasman departures from cities around Australia.
Offering more than 80 departures from cities across Australia and New Zealand, the new program also features Princess’ longer voyages, including 28-night cruises around Australia from both Brisbane and Sydney as well as its popular 35-night roundtrip itinerary from Australia to the tropical waters of Hawaii and Tahiti.
Closer to home, Princess will be making maiden visits to South Australia’s Kangaroo Island and Port Lincoln as part of a six-night Golden Princess cruise from Melbourne or a four-night cruise from Adelaide to Melbourne.   
Releasing details of the program, Princess Cruises Vice President Australia & New Zealand Stuart Allison said the popular Diamond Princess would return to Sydney for a summer of cruising, joining Golden Princess, Sea Princess and Sun Princess to offer cruises from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Fremantle and Auckland.

Diamond Princess and Golden Princess will also sail on exotic cruises between Australia and Singapore and Japan during the season.
