Pre-World Cruise Happenings for 2024

Friday, 29 March 2024 - Last Oz stop before WC24 cruise

Good Friday and the Coral Princess has arrived in Brisbane on its 35 day Hawaii cruise. The next time we see her back in Australia will be on 30 April in Sydney when we start this year's World Cruise (of course our New Zealand WC24 friends will board a few days earlier).

  

Funnily enough, we also visited the Sea Princess the month before we boarded her for the 2016 World Cruise. Arrrhh, the memories....

    

This time we had an added bonus of catching up with our good friends Chris and Sandie (who we first met on WC16). It was lovely spending the day with them, especially as it was Sandie's 70th birthday - Happy birthday Sandie.

Saturday, 23 March 2024 - WC24 get-together - Brisbane

Around 28 people turned out for the 2024 World Cruise get-together at Siam Thai in Southbank. Only 38 days to go...

  

 

Thursday, 01 Feburary 2024 - Gift Hamper

Late last year we started using a Travel Agent for our future world cruises. They were able to give us personal service far begond the current Princess contact, extra on-board credit, and we'd heard about the annual get-together on top of Marina Bay Sands in Singapore for all their world cruisers. What more could you want? Well, to our delight they contacted us a few weeks back to organise our transport to the Brisbane International Cruise Terminal - yes please!

Now we recieve a gift hamper with French Champange and other goodies as we "may wish to celebrate" our fast approaching World Cruise. Wow! Thank you Jane and the Clean Cruising Team. If you're interested too, please use the QR-code (or this link) to join and we'll both recieve a $50 referral credit! How good is that?

Updates

07 Feb 2024: With just 85 days to go, there was a major itinerary change annouced by Princess today:

Based on the current security environment and future uncertainties in this area of the world, we have made the difficult decision to reroute this cruise to bypass the Red Sea and surrounding region, including transit of the Suez Canal.

As a result, you will now embark two days earlier than originally scheduled and in a different port — in Sydney on Tuesday, 30 April, instead of in Brisbane on Thursday, 2 May.

In addition, we will no longer visit Asia, the Middle East, or the Mediterranean. Instead, after leaving Sydney we will travel to Fremantle then on to South Africa and up the west coast of Africa, exploring one-of-a-kind destinations along the way. From there we will resume our schedule in Tangier.

Princess will fly us down to Sydney and we will have two extra nights on-board at no cost (now 112 nights). In addition, they have been very generous and have offered a Future Cruise Credit of 15% of the cruise fare and $750 each onboard credit.

30 Jan 2024: The following was reported in today's press: MIAMI, Jan. 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Carnival Corporation & plc (NYSE/LSE: CCL; NYSE: CUK) is committed to the safety and well-being of its guests and crew and has been actively monitoring the situation in the Red Sea and surrounding region. Given recent developments and in close consultation with global security experts and government authorities, the Company has made the decision to reroute itineraries for 12 ships across seven brands, which were scheduled to transit the Red Sea through May 2024. This World Cruise on the Coral Princess is one of the 12 ships.

In another news release, the company advised that the itinerary for the upcoming world cruise on the Coral Princess is currently being “re-worked” and expected in three days.

14 Dec 2023: Final payment for this cruise was made today. After the challenges of the past few years, it's now very real. Fingers crossed we'll be able to cruise the Red Sea (due to attacks from Houthi militants in Yemen). Only 140 days to go...

01 Feb 2023: The two-day visit to St. Petersburg, Russia has been cancelled. It has been replaced by an extra day in Stockholm (now cruising to the port near the city centre) and adding a call to Visby, Sweden on the island of Gotland. That's very good news.

10 Nov 2021: Our expected 107-night 2022 World Cruise was cancelled due to Australian COVID-19 restrictions. Princess offered to transfer to the 110-night 2024 World Cruise on the Coral Princess for the same price and we accepted. Just over 900 days until embarkation...

15 Sep 2020: Today we booked the 2022 World Cruise on the Coral Princess - only 613 days until embarkation. The adventure begins 20 May 2022 when we board the Coral Princess in BrisbaneNote: Little did we know it would be changed to the 2024 World Cruise from Brisbane. That's 1,326 days (or 3 years, 7 months, 18 days) between booking and the new embarkation - a serious countdown!
