Golden Princess will be deployed from Australia to Hong Kong in April 2016 ahead of her inaugural season in China, before reverting from Tianjin back to Australia later in the year.

Princess Cruises' build-up in China means Golden will make it two cruise ships in China for 2016, alongside Sapphire Princess.

Both vessels could join Princess' 2017-newbuild, which has already committed new tonnage to Chinese market.

For 2016, the two Princess ships will combine with four Costa vessels in China, compared with one Princess and three Costa ships this year.
