January And Off Season Sailings To Australia – New Yachts On The Dalmatian Coast – Princess Cruises To Trim China Plans

The Cruise Examiner for 24th April 2017

Canberra

The 1,750-berth 820-foot Canberra was built for P&O’s Australian trade in 1961 and served the company until 1997

CMV Columbus

Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ latest addition, the 1,400-berth 810-foot long Columbus, will sail to Australia in 2018

Years ago there used to be year-round passenger sailings between Europe and Australia, serving every type of passenger from First Class travellers to emigrants going Down Under to make a new home. Fifty years later, as we see,it is still possible to sail to Australia but one must choose among just a few sailings each year, most of them part world cruises, or container ships that sail once or twice a month with just a few passengers. This week we also have a look at three new yachts that are now cruising the Dalmatian Coast for Riviera Travel. And Princess Cruises has announced that it will send its new China-dedicated ship Majestic Princess to Australia and New Zealand for the Austral summer of 2018-19.

    I cannot leave you a message because I get a pop up that my default mail carrier is not properly installed. I am looking for a freighter from the US or Canada to Australia in January or early February 2018. Could you please answer me on lillijones@yahoo.com. Thank you.
