PRINCESS Cruises’ Pacific Princess is returning to the South Pacific, homeporting in Tahiti from September next year.

Guests will get to visit the islands of French Polynesia – including Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea – onboard the 670-guest Pacific Princess as the cruise liner provides roundtrip sailings for the first time since 2015.

Each voyage includes overnight calls in Papeete and Bora Bora, as well as a stay in Raiatea – the second largest isle after Tahiti. Additional ports of call include Huahine, Rangiroa and Moorea.

“Tahiti and French Polynesia are go-to destinations in themselves and Princess Cruises offers the best way to explore remote island life onboard one of our more intimate ships,” said Princess Cruises’ senior vice president Asia Pacific Stuart Allison. “The upcoming spring 2020 season will mark Pacific Princess’ first visit to the South Pacific in more than five years.”

“While Pacific Princess is the smallest ship in our fleet, she is also the ship that propelled our brand growth in Australia, supported by the nation’s love of cruising. We are elated to see her return to the South Pacific.”

Pacific Princess was christened in Sydney on 8 December 2002 by founding director of The Fred Hollows Foundation, Gabi Hollows AO.
