Princess Cruises
General

One of the best-known names in cruising, Princess Cruises first set sail in 1965 with a single ship cruising to Mexico. Today, the line has grown to become the third largest cruise line in the world, renowned for innovative ships, an array of onboard options, and an environment of exceptional customer service. A recognized leader in worldwide cruising, Princess carries 1.7 million guests each year to destinations around the globe ranging in length from three to 114 days, allowing them to see the world and come back new.

Princess Cruises was catapulted to stardom in 1977 when one of its ships, Pacific Princess, was cast in a starring role on a new television show called "The Love Boat." The weekly series, which introduced millions of viewers to the concept of a sea-going vacation, was an instant hit and both the company name and its "seawitch" logo have remained synonymous with cruising ever since. The show, which can still seen around the world, has been widely credited with fueling the dramatic expansion of the industry.

Ship
Grand Princess
Overview

Everything is outstanding aboard Grand Princess. Relax at The Sanctuary, a tranquil haven reserved for adults. Enjoy Movies Under the Stars on the top deck, and dine at a tantalizing array of venues.

Our staff of digital photographers and videographers helps capture the highlights of your cruise including onboard events, ports and scenery for lasting memories of your trip.

Please ask our staff about portrait packages, reprints and canvas reproductions of your favorite photos!

Vegas Style Casino

For Novices, Casual Players, or High Rollers: From gaming lessons to the latest slot machines to prize tournaments, our Casinos offer fun and excitement.

The Piazza

Take a Stroll into the European-style Piazza: Discover Old World charm as you stroll through our breathtaking Piazza-a hub of activity, inspired by the vibrant squares of Europe. Roving street performers, quaint boutiques, a spiral staircase and several glass-walled lifts provide panoramic views. Visit the International Cafe for gourmet coffees, or marvel at the wine selection at Vines, voted one of the "Best Wine Bars at Sea," by USA Today.

The Shops of Princess

Tax and Duty-free Shopping: It's no surprise The Shops are awarded "Best Onboard Shopping" from Porthole magazine year after year.

Destination
New Zealand
The British colony of New Zealand became an independent dominion in 1907 and supported the UK militarily in both World Wars. New Zealand withdrew from a number of defense alliances during the 1970s and 1980s. In recent years the government has sought to address longstanding native Maori grievances.
Ports of Call
Melbourne, Australia

Australia's "Garden City" rejoices in its greenery, from the Fitzroy Gardens to the magnificent Royal Botanical Gardens. Hiding behind the sky-scrapers along the Yarra River are the graceful 19th-century mansions of the city's Gold Rush years. Sample one of the sixty different international cuisines, which make Melbourne the food capital of Australia.

Fjordland, New Zealand
City Fjordland

Port Chalmers (Dunedin), New Zealand
City Dunedin

Dunedin is a little sliver of Scotland, set on the tropical shores of New Zealand's South Island. Founded by Scottish emigrants in 1848, Dunedin (the Gaelic name for Edinburgh) has fine Victorian and Edwardian architecture, including the Olveston stately home and majestic Larnach Castle--as well as New Zealand's only scotch distillery and kilt shop!

Christchurch, New Zealand
City Christchurch

Christchurch was founded in 1850 by members of the Church of England, who wanted a little bit of heaven on earth. They succeeded, and today the city takes great pride in its spacious layout and distinctive English-style buildings in elegant grey stone. The River Avon winds through Christchurch, along parks and gardens that cover one third of the city.

Auckland, New Zealand
City Auckland

New Zealand's largest city is draped over seven volcanoes and wrapped around Waitemata Harbour (meaning "sea of sparkling waters" in Maori). Despite its British feel, it is the world's largest Polynesian city. Shop for Polynesian crafts on Queen Street, the main drag. Or from atop Mt. Eden, overlook the "City of Sails," which will host the America's Cup races in 2000.
