Princess Cruises revealed plans to operate cruises to and from Adelaide over 2020-2021 summer season, in a move representing the largest ever cruise ship industry commitment to South Australia.

Princess' record South Australian season will see the cruise company inject an estimated US$20 million into the economy of the state in port charges, ship supplies, passenger and crew spending.

In a nod to South Australian wine, the cruise line also unveiled that d’Arenberg wines would be featured across the recently reimagined wine menus onboard Princess Cruises' ships.
