Princess Cruises advances transfer of two ships to P&O Cruises Australia

Princess Cruises has confirmed the official transfer of Golden Princess and Star Princess to P&O Cruises Australia.

The transfer was announced for the first time in 2018, which comes into effect next year, when Golden Princess will be relaunched as Pacific Adventure and Star Princess will be relaunched as Pacific Encounter.

Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president, said, “Golden Princess and Star Princess have sailed all over the world, creating lifelong memories for the millions of guests who sailed upon these beloved cruise ships.”

Mr Swartz added, “We know their wonderful legacy will continue under sister brand P&O Cruises Australia, which has become so well-known for delivering unforgettable cruise holidays for Aussies and Kiwis to some of the most idyllic destinations in the South Pacific.”  

Golden Princess first joined the fleet in May 2001, and her sister ship Star Princess, the following year, in January 2002.

Both the ships offered 710 balcony staterooms, as well as Personal Choice Cruising, the innovative Personal Choice Dining, allowing passengers to dine where, when and with whoever they wished. In addition, there were other benefits, such as, Lotus Spa and Fitness Centres, Movies Under the Stars, The Sanctuary adults-only retreat, the Piazza, and speciality restaurants Sabatini’s and Crown Grill.  

Guests with bookings will be notified about rebookings and refunds.
