golden princessSydney welcomed a new visitor in late October, when Princess Cruises’ Golden Princess sailed into the Harbour to make her maiden call to Australia. Golden Princess joins four other Princess ships to offer roundtrip cruises in local waters during the cruise line’s biggest ever Australian summer season.

The ship’s standout features include Skywalkers Nightclub, suspended at the rear of the ship and reached by a moving walkway above the decks, as well as more than 1300 staterooms, four pools, nine whirlpools, two show lounges and 12 dining options. Golden Princess is also the first ship in the Princess’ fleet to feature Crafted by Curtis menu items in its dining room, following the cruise line’s exclusive partnership with Australian chef Curtis Stone. Arriving after a 28-day cruise from San Francisco via the Pacific, Golden Princess then departed on a 10-night South Pacific cruise.

She will sail to Melbourne for a five month season of cruising, arriving on 30 October to claim the mantle of the largest cruise ship to be based in Victoria.
