Princess Cruises has announced new departures from Brisbane next year, offering Queensland-based cruisers more travel options.

The cruise line has added options to sail roundtrip from Brisbane ranging from seven nights to 104 nights. They include trips to destinations in the South Pacific and then to South America.

Among the new options is the Australia and New Zealand 35-night cruise on Dawn Princess. Departing Brisbane 15 April it includes tours of the Yarra Valley and Maori cultural performances in Auckland.

There’s also the Hawaii, Tahiti and South Pacific 41-night cruise on Sea Princess. She departs Brisbane on 7 April and includes visits to the reefs of Bora Bora and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Princess Cruises executive vice president sales, marketing and customer service Jan Swartz said the new itineraries opened new options for the cruise line’s passengers based in Queensland.

He said: “With a growing number of Queenslanders choosing to holiday at sea, Princess Cruises’ Brisbane sailings are the perfect way to see the world.”
