Three World Cruises from Oz

Princess Cruises recently announced that a royal trio, Sea Princess, Sun Princess and Dawn Princess, will remain in Australian waters over the winter of 2013.

The ships will be offering a program of 10 different cruises from Sydney and Fremantle between April and November, three of which are roundtrip world cruises taking guests to Europe and around the Pacific Rim.

A 90-day Grand Europe World Cruise on Dawn Princess will take Aussies from southern winter to northern summer for warmth and cool libations in destinations such as Venice, Florence and Rome (departs Sydney on July 13, 2013).

A 104-night Round World Cruise on Sea Princess will visit 43 destinations, with an emphasis on Northern Europe and a cruise by ANZAC Cove (departs Sydney on May 20, 2013).

And the 75-day Grand Pacific World Cruise on Sun Princess will skirt ‘The Ring of Fire’, visiting 31 seismically shaped destinations on the Pacific Rim, from Osaka, Japan, to San Francisco, America (departs Sydney on April 26, 2013).

Princess Cruises’ 2013 Australian program will go on sale on Friday.
