Which Princess Will This Be?
For cruise ship fans there is always a little bit of sadness in the last cruise ship for the season coming into port. It heralds the cool down into winter and the start of the darker months, when interest will be more on sitting around a warm fire with a glass of port, than heading out to watch a long line of cruise ships sailing in and out of port. However, with one last ship to come in, one can always look forward to the next season when there will no doubt be just as exciting as the last season has been.
On Friday 30 March 2018, come out for the last time this season to see Princess CruisesSea Princess dock at Adelaide's Outer Harbour Passenger Terminal at 6.30 am. She will spend her day here in stunning Adelaide before setting sail once again at 6 pm.
If you like to see the big ships cruising into and out of harbour great viewing spots exists all along the St Vincent Gulf coast from Cape Jervis all the way to Port Adelaide with the best spots being Glenelg, West Beach, Henley Beach and Largs Bay. Great viewing will be available from all of these locations but remember to bring along your binoculars as the ship may be quiet some distance out.
This activity is free and child friendly however this is a viewing only activity, and no access is available onboard or at the passenger terminal for those wishing to head to the outer harbour.
Sea Princess will arrive as part of her Round Australia Cruise, after departing Brisbane and travelling to Adelaide via Sydney, Hobart, Burnie and Melbourne. This cruise is a full circumnavigation of Australia and Sea Princess will continue on from Adelaide to travel to Albany, Margaret River, Fremantle, Broome, Kimberley, Darwin, Cairns and Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea before returning to Brisbane.
Along with her sisters Sun Princess, Oceana (formerly Ocean Princess) and Pacific Explorer (formerly Dawn Princess), Sea Princess is a sun-class cruise ship. She is 261 metres in length, has 14 decks and carries 2,000 passengers and 900 crew. Sea Princess has two propeller shafts, two 6 bladed propellers but does not have a traditional funnel. See is you can see what she does have in place of a funnel.
From your viewing point see Sea Princess's Sun Deck which includes The Sanctuary, Topsails Bar and Sports Court. This is also a great vantage point for guests to take in the sun and watch the sunrise and sunset.
Sea Princess offers cruises from 2 to 106 nights around Australia, South Pacific and the World.
