Are you ready to cruise?

Cruises offer great value for your dollar because the fares include nearly everything you’ll need for a fantastic trip: food, accommodations, use of superb facilities, daytime and evening entertainment and transportation between travel destinations.

Princess Cruise has revealed plans to operate a record 20 cruises to and from Adelaide over the 2020-21 summer season, in a move that represents the biggest ever cruise industry commitment to South Australia.

The record South Australian season will see Princess Cruises inject an estimated $20 million into the state economy in crew and passenger spending, ship supplies and port charges.

Princess Cruises Senior Vice President Asia Pacific Stuart Allison said, “This program represents the largest ever financial commitment to South Australia by a cruise line and will make Adelaide the fastest growing homeport for Princess Cruises in Australia, putting it firmly on the national cruise map.”

Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, David Ridgway, welcomed Princess Cruises’ increased presence in South Australia, which will have significant flow-on economic benefits for the state.

“Princess Cruises’ significant investment follows a record cruise season for South Australia, which saw 82 ships bringing up to 170,000 passengers and crew into our ports and injecting more than $118 million into the local economy,’’ said Minister Ridgway.

Princess Cruises says the Adelaide season is a highlight of Princess Cruises’ new Australian program, which offers holidaymakers almost 100 cruises across five Princess ships sailing from five homeports around the country between October 2020 and May 2021.

Cruising is the perfect holiday for many people because you can really do as much or as little as you want. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie, lounge lizard or a bit of both, there is something for all tastes and ages.

There are as many reasons to cruise as there are types of cruises on offer. From the weeklong getaway to the round-the-world trip of a lifetime, a cruise holiday lets you explore regions of the world in comfort and affordable luxury.
