On October 13 Princess Cruises’ Sun Princess departed Sydney on the first of the cruise line’s biggest-ever season of New Zealand cruises from Australia. Over the next five months, Princess Cruises will offer 22 cruises to New Zealand from Melbourne and Sydney, on Sun Princess, Dawn Princess and Diamond Princess.
Cruises will feature Maori performances, nature talks, award-winning local movies, lectures from destination experts, Maori workshops and themed nights. There will be a range of Kiwi cuisine options including bacon and egg pie in the morning, mussel soup at lunch and Hangis at night. And to top it all off, bars will stock Steinlager beer and Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc and the bar staff will happily mix kiwifruit martinis and daiquiris.
