Princess Cruises’ vp Australia & New Zealand Stuart Allison announced line’s longest world cruise out of Sydney in 2018 at 2016 World’s Leading Cruise Lines Partnership Summit on Carnival Spirit.

Allison said the 106-night cruise by Sea Princess will depart Sydney June 5, 2018, and visit 40 destinations in 27 countries, including new cruise ports in Greenland and Canada.

He said Princess, which will mark its 10th year of world cruising from Australia next year, will welcome its 30,000th local world cruise passenger aboard Sea Princess in 2018.

Princess carries two out of three Australian cruise passengers to New Zealand and Allison said its new campaign, 'Across the Ditch,' heightens the experience with more New Zealand wines on board and local dishes, including the disputed Pavlova dessert named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova who visited Australia and New Zealand in the 1920s. 

A range of new shore excursions, emphasizing Maori traditions and culture, has been produced.
