While onboard Sapphire Princess last January, we looked at cruises for 2019. Princess Cruises was still celebrating their 50th Anniversary with a sale which included onboard credits. We looked at several possible cruises, but hadn't made up our mind.
Our table mates were from Australia, which got us talking about traveling to that part of the world. In addition, New Zealand is one of the hot destinations for 2019. We try to stay current with travel trends so that we can advise our clients based on personal experiences. Also, Majestic Princess is Princess Cruises newest Royal-class ship, which entered service in 2017.

As usual, we arrived a day early so that we can get acclimated to the time change and avoid departure day anxiety should flights be delayed. Our pre-cruise stay was at Intercontinental Hotel Sydney which overlooks the harbour.

Be sure to follow us on our other social media accounts during the cruise for live posts.
