Royal Princess makes its regal debut in Hobart

Princess Cruises’ Medallion Class Royal Princess has made its first-ever arrival in Hobart on a round trip sailing from Sydney.

The 142,000-tonne ship that’s capable of carrying over 3,500 guests, has taken off to Tasmania on a trip that will flaunt Princess’ new collaboration with Wine Selectors.

When in Hobart, cruise-goers have the opportunity to explore the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), venture on a Hobart Historic Walking Tour, discover Mt. Wellington & Royal Botanic Gardens, discover Bruny Island and much more.

This stop in Tassie is part of Royal Princess’ debut Down Under, when the ship first landed in Sydney on 23 October.

Royal Princess debut’s in Hobart.

Royal Princess will be offering a total of 14 round trips from Sydney, sailing alongside Princess’ fellow ships Grand Princess, Coral Princess, and Majestic Princess this summer.

The ship embarked on its first Australian voyage – a 10-night roundtrip cruise to Queensland, making maiden calls to Brisbane, Cairns, the Whitsundays and Port Douglas.

Labelled a ‘four-day wine-themed Seacation’ this trip to Hobart will focus on the new Wine Selectors collaboration.

Guests can also enjoy a guided masterclass hosted by International wine show judge, winemaker and educator, Dave Mavor, matched with gourmet food for $30 per person. Also available will be an intimate, five-course dinner with Tasmanian Winemaker Jeremy Dineen at Princess Cruises’ Table Lumiere.

This comes just a few days after Princess announced its mega 2025/26 Australia program, including a 114 night voyage on Crown Princess.

Offering roundtrip departures from Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland, Crown Princess’ epic 2026 world odyssey will visit 48 destinations in 31 countries across six continents and cover an impressive 35,000 nautical miles.
