Less than a month after cancelling an early 2021 world cruise by Island Princess from North America and a circle South America sailing by Pacific Princess from Australia, Princess Cruises has announced a new 2021/2022 programme.

The 107-night circumnavigation of the globe will cover the Mediterranean, Norway, Iceland, the Arctic Circle and the Panama Canal.

Five ships in Australia

Like Coral Princess, Royal Princess will also be making a maiden season Down Under. They will be joined by Emerald Princess, Pacific Princess and Sapphire Princess in the 2021/2022 programme, which is offering round-trip departures from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.
