  1. We seem to know what will happen with Sun Princess with her new career at Japan Grace as Peaceboat. It will be interesting to see what happens to Sea Princess. To both Sun and Sea thank you for being part of the Australian cruising scene, you will both be missed. From the Princess website: September 21, 2020 5:10PM PT SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – Today, the world’s leading international premium cruise line, Princess Cruises, announced the sale of two of its ships, Sun Princess and Sea Princess, to undisclosed buyers. The sale of these vessels is in line with parent company Carnival Corporation’s plan to accelerate the removal of less efficient ships from its fleet. “Sun Princess and Sea Princess contributed to significant growth in Australian cruising,” said Princess Cruises president Jan Swartz. “Both ships defined the premium cruise experience with Australians and New Zealanders spending close to 14 million nights aboard these ships. While it is never easy to say goodbye to any ship in our fleet, this will allow us to deploy newer ships enhancing our offerings for Australia cruisers and focus on exciting newbuilds like the upcoming delivery of Enchanted Princess.” The first ship in the Sun Class, Sun Princess was introduced in 1995 debuting in the Caribbean and was amongst the largest ships in the world at the time. The 2,000-guest Sun Princess also sailed in Alaska and Panama Canal, among other destinations, before being homeported in Australia in October 2007. Sun Princess also helped us open the Japanese market in 2013 as the first foreign-flagged cruise ships to offer cruises designed specifically for the Japanese. The 2,000-guest Sea Princess became synonymous with World Cruises, completing over half of six global voyages since 2009, including the first ever world cruise from Australia. During her time based in Australia, Sea Princess travelled the equivalent of 35 times around the world. Prior to joining Sun Princess in Australia, Sea Princess sailed in Europe and Alaska as well as the Caribbean, including serving as homeport ship in Barbados in the early 2000s. Due to the imminent departure of these two ships from the fleet, Princess Cruises will cancel published itineraries which include: Sun Princess sailings from December 28, 2020 through August 14, 2021 Sea Princess sailings from December 23, 2020 through November 9, 2021
  2. And so it comes to pass ... confirmation this afternoon that Princess has sold Sun Princess and Sea Princess. It seems that Sun Princess is going to Japan Grace as a Peace Boat. What is to happen with Sea Princess is, I believe, still unknown. Sea Princess is currently off Changi in Singapore and Sun Princess is currently off the coast of Singapore with many of her fleetmates.

  6. It’s a long way but definitely worth it. If you need any suggestions, let me know.
  7. Here is a copy of the programme release. If you’re sailing Sydney to Auckland I’d suggest a cabin on the port side to get the best views, particularly between the sounds. http://static.cdn.responsys.net/i2/responsysimages/content/princessau/200903_Brox_AU_LRC.pdf
