New Princess Itineraries

Years ago when I started in the travel industry the first job I was given was sorting a mammoth pile of brochures. Dull job you might think but to me it was the most exciting introduction to travel.

I was able to feast my eyes on exotic destinations from all over the world! Drool over pictures of pristine beaches, dream of romantic over-the-water bungalows, view magnificent vistas from all parts of the world. I knew then that this business was for me!

Even now several times a year we are sent exotic and enticing brochures from cruise lines, tour operators, airlines, hotel chains and tourist boards to name a few. All vying for my attention and that of my clients. This year is no exception. Princess Cruises has just delivered their 2011-2012 Exotics brochure – Wow!

Princess cruises to every corner of the world while providing their Warm, Welcoming service combined with C.R.U.I.S.E. – Courtesy, Respect, Unfailing In Service Excellence which is not just their motto but their culture. No where will you see such astounding architecture than throughout their ships – with three story atriums and panoramic elevators combined with millions of dollars of art – each ship is a destination on its own. See www.princess.com for some excellent videos.

The 2600 passenger ship the Diamond Princess is offering 16 – 39 day cruises visiting China, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand and Singapore before sailing on down to Australia’s east coast and the Great Barrier Reef. At the conclusion of your cruise you can extend your stay in Australia by adding one of Princess’s overland tours such as the Australian Outback Adventure that takes you to Ayers Rock, Alice Springs and Cairns.

The Ocean Princess, their exquisite small 680 passenger ship, offers a variety of South Pacific cruises that will take you to the edges of paradise! Visit Bora Bora, Moorea, Tahiti and other tranquil islands on a ten day sojourn or fly to Papeete and embark on a 16 day voyage cruising through American Samoa before reaching New Zealand with stops in Auckland and Tauranga before sailing on to Sydney, Australia. Having spent three weeks in the South Pacific myself I can vouch for the crystal clear waters, idyllic islands and wonderfully friendly people. There is no better escape than to take a cruise throughout the South Pacific during our cold winter months.

The Dawn, Sea and Sun Princesses are being moved to Australia in 2012 and are offering 12 – 35 day cruises from Sydney and Brisbane to the Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia, and Fiji! Other exotic destinations such as South America and Africa are not forgotten.

In April 2010 the Ocean Princess sails from the Orient to Cape Town South Africa and then continues up the West Coast of Africa visiting Luderitz, Walvis Bay, Cotonou, Terma, Dakar, Sao Vicente in the Cape Verde Islands before stopping in the Canary Islands, Casablanca, Cadiz, Lisbon, Le Havre and finally Dover England on a 58 day grand voyage!

Princess is one of the few suppliers that still prints brochures and if you would like a copy just call our office or visit their web site for full details.
